Flobots - Fight with Tools

10 Friends 100 albums, album 14 (Josh)

Flobots are that one group that had that massive rap-rock song Handlebars, and that's about all I knew about them. The meaning of that song obviously becoming clearer and more real as I would get older, I always had a curiosity for what the band's other material would be like, so this record was already on my radar before it was suggested to me.

EDEN - ICYMI

Atmospheric and depressing. If I feel in the mood for this kind of music I feel like I would like it a bit better, but you can't deny EDEN's style and execution is certainly effective.
Death Cab For Cutie - Asphalt Meadows

Lucki - Watch My Back

Okay this was way better than his debut. Lucki's production is skeletal but in doing so emphasizes his lyrics more. The atmospheres are nice and chill without being sleep-inducing and while his voice is still not my most favorite, he sounds alive and that counts for a whole lot.
Lil Yachty - Let's Start Here.

Lil Yachty taking me surprise on this one. This style of music suits him wonderfully and it's so smooth and relaxing to listen to. The first track starts with a bang, that song made my jaw drop.

Hey SoundOwl.

So I made a list full of records that I wanted to recommend to anybody possible.

If you have very obscure record (say not enough to register for the charts), then comment a recommendation. I would like to put more obscure things on that list.

For some reason whenever I go to AOTY on my phone, it automatically sets me to your profile so I every time I open AOTY, I can see your follower count creep closer and closer to 100 followers.

I've seen this idea done by other users and I thought it would be neat to partake in a trend as well. 10 friends each recommended 10 albums and I review them all :)
