2017 in music: my top 5 albums

1. “Visions of a Life” by Wolf Alice


From the first minute of “Heavenward,” this album was captivating – an effortless compilation of punk, grunge, and hypnotic dream-pop.

2. “Masseduction” by St. Vincent

A sort-of personal memoir by Annie Clark, Masseduction is a meta pop album with catchy, upbeat songs like “Pills” that clash perfectly with the down-tempo melodies of “Slow Disco.”

3. “Melodrama” by Lorde


A brilliant pop album with smart lyrics, Melodrama is an autobiographical account of intimacy, grief, and the unsteadiness of being a young woman.

4. “A Deeper Understanding” by The War on Drugs


A Deeper Understanding is an almost cinematic recording of hazy synthesizers that make walking the city streets feel like a melancholic movie scene.

5. “The Ooz” by King Krule


Archy Marshall’s second album under the name King Krule is a beautifully disorientating journey through gritty punk rock and moody jazz.
