Top 5 Charts:

1.) Men I Trust – Oncle Jazz

After nearly two years of teasers for the album, Men I Trust finally released Oncle Jazz earlier this fall. The record in full lasts an entire 71 minutes, and, as the title suggests, it’s as smooth and funky as it is an indie staple.

2.) Somos – Prison on a Hill

Originally more of a pop punk group, Somos can now be better described as a “guitar pop band.” The creation of Prison on a Hill occurred after an announced hiatus, yielding a record full of upbeat tracks that balance catchiness with calls for political reform.

3.) SebastiAn – Thirst

SebastiAn’s sophomore album comes a full 8 years after his debut, Total. Thirst incorporates not only several styles of electronic music but several artist features, making it a diverse and compelling listen.


4.) SASSY 009 – Kill Sassy 009

Originally comprised of a trio, SASSY 009 returns as a solo project with only one previous member: Sunniva Lindgaard. Kill Sassy 009 merges elements of dream pop, ambient noise, and electronica into a record that is somehow both intimate and animated.

5.) Hana Vu – Nicole Kidman/Anne Hathaway

At just 19, Hana Vu’s double EP, Nicole Kidman/Anne Hathaway, is making waves in the bedroom pop scene. Though relatively short, the EP is purposeful and impressive, especially considering that the artist produced it herself.
