This video was very nearly quite a few different things; so many new albums were released this year by bands I love. Off the top of my head,* and in no particular order, there were new releases from Alabama Shakes, The Decemberists, Tame Impala, Silversun Pickups, Beirut, Wilco, Father John Misty, Kendrick Lamar, Cage The Elephant, Ben Folds, Mark Ronson, Zac Brown Band, Beach House, CeeLo Green, Best Coast, The Tallest Man on Earth, Twenty One Pilots, Low, Metric, Blitzen Trapper, Jason Isbell, Of Monsters and Men, Kid Cudi, The Arcs ... and I'm sure I've missed a few.** Point is, all of these bands dropped new music in 2015 making this a very tough choice.
One of my favorites of the year showed up on bootsy's list (and he actually prompted me to get Smoke Ring For My Halo a few years back) - Kurt Vile's b'lieve i'm goin down... is home to Pretty Pimpin:
*not really. I had to look a few up to be sure the album I was thinking of was released this year.
**not to mention all the new bands I've yet to get to.
