Fact: There was a lot of music this year. Fact: We like music. Fact: The following list will show you our favorite albums from around the office. I included a playlist of songs as well, so you can check them out. Or don’t. I don’t care. It’s, like, whatever man.
SOURCEFED’S FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2015
Dani Rosenberg: The only album I’ve really listened to in full and repeatedly is Adele’s 25. Pretty sure that’s a dead giveaway I’m a Spotify subscriber.
Brett Houston: Every Open Eye from Chvrches. Discovered this band this year and love all their stuff so far.
Jonathan Holman: Meliora by Ghost. While Adele came really close, I don’t think I’ve spun any other record more this year because this album is a core-shattering rock jam. So much air guitar.
JD Waldvogel: Return To The Moon by El Vy. Not a day has passed that I haven’t listened to it since it’s release. Every track is awesome, and Matt Berninger‘s (from The National) singing and lyrics combined with Brent Knopf‘s (Ramona Falls/Menomena) musicianship is so fun.
Bree Essrig: It’s a toss-up between Sound and Color by Alabama Shakes and Badlands by Halsey. Both albums are epic from start to finish. Both albums are helmed by soulful, badass women.
Kristy Petherbridge: Dopamine by BØRNS. It’s a really personal album for me lately, but the music is smooth/eclectic and I feel good feels when I listen to it. Also, he’s from Michigan and that’s awesome.
And here’s a small playlist of our favorite songs as well, thrown together. What songs/albums do you agree with or think we missed? Comment below!
