    Aw, dang. I don’t have any of these albums this year. I have a lot of listening to do now…

    PS: Thanks for the list! I’ve been eagerly awaiting it. :)

    Man, how great are Chvrches and Bastille! Maybe it’s just me (I’m 38 years old) but I’ve always loved 80;s synth pop—thrilled it’s making a resurgence. I have to listen to the others you listed here! You guys rule.
