Other Years: 20162015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007.

Here is this year's top ten list from the Evans' house. It is strictly a reflection of what we listened to most this year. I've also included two honorable mentions???a re-release and soundtrack that came out this year???because they deserved it... and it balanced out my collage.

Top 10:
BLK JKS - After Robots Original, unique, awesome.

David Bazan - Curse Your Branches Honest, raw... best thing Bazan's done to date.

Grizzley Bear - Veckatimest I didn't want to like this album... but I do.

Tinariwen - Imidiwan: Companions Desert, gypsy goodness.

Vic Chesnutt - At The Cut Best Chesnutt recording yet in my opinion.

Tegan and Sara - Sainthood Walla did wonders with this duo. Great album.

The Thermals - Now We Can See Nothing new here. Just consistently good, simple rock with punk attitude.

Japandroids - Post-Nothing Stripped-down, noisy rock.

Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca I don't get the Dirty Projectors but they make some dissonant, beautiful music.

Monsters of Folks - Monsters of Folk A super group that deserves the term. Catchy stuff!

Honorable Mentions:
Jawbox - For Your Own Special Sweetheart The crazy thing is that this came out in '94 originally. It still sound innovative and new. This is a great album.

Karen O and the Kids - Where The Wild Things Are soundtrack Cute yet still a bit haunting. Matched the film perfectly.
