Too Soon? Kip’s Best of 2016… So Far


WHOA DADDY — and I thought last year yielded some great offerings.

The canon of albums which have graced mein earholes already this year is pretty insane, and there are plenty more future historical classics to come in the 2nd half of sweet ’16…

Binary Code — Moonsblood (self-released)
Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas — The Mariner (Indie)
Deftones — Gore (Reprise)
Dust Moth — Scale (Mylene Sheath)
The Gorge — Thousand Year Fire (self-released)
Gorguts — Pleiades’ Dust (Season of Mist)
Kvelertak — Nattesferd (Roadrunner)
Laser Flames on the Great Big News — self-titled (Helmet Lady)
Mars Red Sky — Apex III (Praise for the Burning Soul) (Listenable)
North — Light The Way (Prosthetic)
Nothing — Tired of Tomorrow (Relapse)
Rihanna — ANTI (Westbury Road)
Spirit Adrift — Behind – Beyond (Prosthetic)
Spotlights — Tidals (Crowquill)
Sumac — What One Becomes (Thrill Jockey)
Toothgrinder — Nocturnal Masquerade (Spinefarm)
