    August update: Easily the most stacked month this year! I'm honestly surprised I was able to listen to so much since Foxing took over the majority of my listening this month. I don't think theres anything that will upset it as my AOTY, but we'll see!

    August in Review:
    This month's write-up is coming a little later than usual because work has been crazy, but also because August was kind of a strange month. A few of the albums that I was really excited for (Ariana Grande, Mitski, Troye Sivan) fell a bit flat for me on repeat listens, and it's finally getting to the point where the actual mass of music I've listened to at this point in the year has fully overwhelmed my ability to process new material. I passed the 200 New Albums mark this month, and it's only 2/3 of the way through the year. It's a lot.

    My favorite album of this month was The Beths' Future Me Hates Me, a punchy set of indie rock anthems from a New Zealand four-piece that have an uncommon warmth about them. Set off by lead vocalist Elizabeth Stokes' infectious delivery, the music sits comfortably alongside the Camp Cope album from earlier this year. While that album felt like an exposed nerve, this one is a bit more of a sugar rush, as the ups and downs of songs like "Little Death" demand an endless pogo. There's an elemental urgency to the band's melodies and harmonies that remind me of one of my favorite albums from college, Miniature Tigers' Tell It to the Volcano. It's been a great running album, getting me 'round the park and over the Williamsburg Bridge.

    Top 2018 albums of the month:

    The Beths, Mac Miller, Liz Cooper & the Stampede

    Recommended Songs I discovered this month:
    Emotional Oranges - "Personal"
    Disclosure - "Where Angels Fear To Tread"
    Babygirl - "Over In No Time"
    Tenille Townes - "Somebody's Daughter (Acoustic)"
    Big Red Machine - "I Won't Run From It"

    I'll be with you the whole way.

    Chris by Christine and the Queens is some AOTY contender.

    Thanks for the reminder to check this out! I'm about 2/3rd's the way through this at the moment and so far this is most consistent of her albums, not a single track I'm not into!

    Best music month of the year. Hippo Campus and Jungle are both AOTY contenders, and it feels like I gave 1/2 of what I listened to over the past 2 weeks a "++"

    September in Review:
    Still catching up... September brought in a number of really special projects from artists I was both expecting and not expecting. Foremost among these is Ruston Kelly's debut, which came out of nowhere to become one of the most resonant albums of the year for me. It's the sound of a man going through real darkness and coming out the other side, full of clear, tuneful songwriting that reminds me of Ryan Adams' best work. I keep finding new songs that hit me (currently it's "Jericho"), which is always a good sign. There's special things to come for this guy.

    Top 2018 albums of the month:

    Ruston Kelly, 6LACK, Restorations

    Recommended Songs I discovered this month:
    Noah Gundersen - "Wrong Side"
    The 1975 - "Sincerity Is Scary"
    Ruston Kelly - "Son of A Highway Daughter"
    Amber Mark - "Put You On [Feat. DRAM]"
    The Night Game - "Coffee And Cigarettes"
