2. 22, A Millon by Bon Iver - Bon Iver do what they do best, relaxing the audience and bringing them straight into a dream world. This is definitely my favorite Bon Iver album thus far, considering that the other ones never really took off for me. You have to be in the right state of mind to listen to Bon Iver usually, but this album starts off with a great track to put you into that state of mind. Bon Iver's beauty comes from high vocals and experimental instrumentals. I love the innovation of the band, creating their own genre that rests between experimental and soft rock. Some songs give me chills as others push me back in my chair to concentrate on everything going on in the layered backgrounds.
Notable Tracks: "22 (Over Soon)" and "8 (circle)"
3. Atrocity Exhibition by Danny Brown - Danny Brown caught my attention with his great single, "Grown Up". Ever since then, I started to get hooked on his fresh and brutal rap style. This is not an album for your grandma, but your grandma probably doesn't listen to rap anyways so we shouldn't have to worry about that. Brown reminds me of Childish Gambino's fast and high rhymes. Yet Brown seems a lot rawer, with no self-control and so much explicit content. Danny Brown will continue to release whatever he wants, but now he should be able to get more collabs in.
Notable Tracks: "Rolling Stone", "Really Doe", "Ain't it Funny"
