Cydney Alexis: Top Albums of 2016

Manhattan, KS

top ten albums

08ANOHNI: HOPELESSNESS

I don’t have the urge to listen to this album a lot, but when I do, it tugs at my heartstrings.

07James Blake: The Colour in Anything

An ironic title for one of the most depressing, though emotionally powerful, albums of the year. Not to be listened to if contemplating suicide.

05A Tribe Called Quest: We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service

As sonically interesting as it is a feat of continued relevance.

03Parquet Courts: Human Performance

Every song makes me question how they innovate their sound on every song and album while always being immediately recognizable as Parquet Courts.

01Nicolas Jaar: Sirens

An album that made me wonder how I have ignored Jaar’s music for so long and invited me to listen to his whole back catalogue on repeat.
