2015, still no hoverboards.

The future is still however, fantastic, as is the soundtrack.

Hey QT
A song right out of anime, that's an advertisment for a semi-fictional drink?
This is  extremely my shit.

A New Wave - Sleater-Kinney
Words cannot express how happy i am that Sleater-Kinney is back.

Elektra - Refused

i never expected Refused to come back from the dead, but holy shit am i glad they did.
Not as iconic soundscape as Shape of Punk to Come, but makes up for it in pure raw anger.

Sapokanikan - Joanna Newsom
Joanna Newsom is sounding even more Kate Bush than usual, be still my beating heart.

Red Cow - mewithoutYou

i've ragged on mewithoutYou for years for turning into a jug band, but the evolution of their sound and themes with the return to rock makes blew me away, welcome back mewithoutYou.

Before the World was Big - girlpool
 While i know nothing of being a young girl, though this song may give me some idea. It certainly captures the feelings of youth, and simple and pure enough to listen to on repeat.

The Day is My Enemy - the Prodigy

Goddamn is this an awesome assault of digital noise.

The Tito Beltrán Massacre - Fucking Werewolf Asso

Green Ranger - Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire

This dude is defintely my favourite arist of the year.
i mean, he thought this song wasn't good enough. Shit.

Go to the Bottom - Semyon
There's something really charming about this Russian kid trying to be Eminem.
Best of luck to you Semyon. 

Satin Black - Hanni El Khatib x Freddie Gibbs
Freddie Gibbs can do no wrong.
As an aside, as we're in the age of digital albums, animated covers should be a thing. 

The Mexican - GZA
Goddamn GZA.

Double Dare - Shelf Life
Much like "Before the World Was Big" another song about youth, this one is cynical and hilarious though.

Sasquatch .22 - Bay Faction

This is the grown up version of the cynicism from Double Dare, generation defining shit.
Not a positive definition, but a fitting one.

Hamilton is pure brilliance. What a fantastic musical.

Pirates and Nirvana? The sound of the new.

Kill V. Maim - Grimes

Actually this is the sound of the new. Grimes' latest offering is my favourite album of the year, by far.
And her videos are absolutely sublime.

2015 was a fantastic year for new sounds, let's keep our ears open for 2016.
