Right now I gotta say, sorry Matthew Good, you're not number 1 for me.


That position goes to a duo I stumbled upon by hearing a song they did for the Hunger Games soundtrack and was really grabbed by their recently released self-titled album. They have a nice, sort of unique sound and their voices (man and woman) blend beautifully, as does the music. They are different from my usual musical choice, they are a folk/country/rock blend. But mostly folk. Their new album is very emotional in spots.


So my album of the year right now is The Civil Wars - The Civil Wars.

I highly recommend you check them out, I think there's some here who would enjoy them.


Here's a song from their debut:



From the new album:





Other top albums are Palms - Palms and Matthew Good - Arrows of Desire.

I've bought quite a bit of music this year, but not much that was released this year:


Arrows of Desire

Pure Heroine by Lorde

Kveikur by Sigur Ros

Siberia Acoustic by Lights

Heartthrob by Tegan and Sara


I would have to say Kveikur is my favorite from this year, with Arrows a close second, then Pure Heroine, Heartthrob and Siberiacoustic.
