Best New Albums Since 2010

download-2

This can be an extremely difficult process to accumulate years of music and bottle them into a handful of records. So the criteria for our list will consist of a few factors including but not limited to;

1> The ability to enjoy the record all the way through.

2> The unique and/or innovative style and vibe of the Album.

3> The versatility and transitional ability of the artists.

4> The Artwork and overall theme of the album.

5> The transcendent sound that cannot necessarily be pin pointed into an era or time while still capturing the time.

6> The album must be a vinyl release and must be atleast an EP.
