My "Smart Playlist" for 2018 only has a few items in it though I haven't been ripping as much as before. But then, it's all good stuff.
Ghost, Stoat, Sloan, They Might Be Giants, Twenty One Pilots, Kinski, The Middle Ages, The Lost Brothers.

Superchunk - What A Time To Be Alive
Yo La Tengo - There's a Riot Going On
Stoat - Try Not To Think About It
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - Sparkle Hard
Spook of the 13th Lock - Lockout
Wasn't the Spook out in 2017?

I consider your purchases to be a mark of high quality, been turned onto loads of great stuff via what you've posted on that thread, so cheers.

I liked the Anna Burch, Shy Boys, Jeff Rosenstock, Pig Destroyer and Fucked Up albums. I actually think the Fucked Up album might end up becoming my favourite. There's a lot of really good stuff hidden on it.

I ended up finding out about loads of old music I'd never heard before this year like Neu. They're deadly.

Fucked Up are a band where I've always liked a song or two but have found their albums patchy. Must check out the new one.

The Quietus always have an interesting list. Good for finding under the radar stuff.

I've bought a few 2018 albums. I've liked them all to one degree or another. I wouldn't say any of them have blown me away or anything. Yet to pick a favorite. I've been a bit distracted this year. I haven't given them much of a listen.

Jack White - boarding house reach
Beach House - 7
Ezra Furman - Transangelic angel
MGMT - little dark age
Cavern of antimatter - hormone lemonade
Arctic Monkeys - tranquility base....
Melody's Echo Chamber - Bon voyage
Prefuse 73 - Sacrifices
Vinyl Williams - Opal
Arp - Zebra
The Lemon Twigs - Go to school
Maston - Darkland
I forgot to add the Suede album, the blue hour....which i've also barely listened to.

'7' by Beach House has been my album of the year along with Meric Long's 'FAN'.

Their albums tend to be really long. I've probably only listened to the new album all the way through once.

That list reminded me of the Rolo Tomassi album that came out earlier this year which was great. And also The Armed, which was pretty good, they're playing over here in February I think.

2 more albums that I really liked this were the Pianos Become the Teeth one (check out the song Charisma) and the Foxing album.

In my top 5 songs from this year are 'Sally McLennane' and 'Take me home country roads' ... that's what you get for playing in a cover band in the countryside (and learning the songs by playing along with Spotify)
