Most of these came out in the last quarter of the year; I just haven't had enough time to really familiarize myself with them. They're in alphabetical order.
Butch Walker - Sycamore Meadows
I always like everything Butch Walker puts out. This album is no different.
Cloud Cult - Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-Partying Through Tornadoes)
Every time I've listened to this album, I've really enjoyed it. I just forget to put it on. This is one of those where I'm thankful for album shuffle.
Dillinger Four - C I V I L W A R
I will always have a weakness for this kind of punk rock. It's great when I'm in the right mood.
Fall Out Boy - Folie a Deux
I will also always have a weakness for this kind of punk rock. I've only listened to this album a few times, but Fall Out Boy definitely can still make catchy and intelligent pop music. Fuck you, Drew.
Parenthetical Girls - Entanglements
This album is so cool. The orchestral arrangements sound incredible. I can't wait to listen to this album more.
Pompeii - Nothing Happens for a Reason
This is a really good album that got overshadowed by bigger things that I got at the same time. If I had listened to it more, it could have probably been in the top 10. It just needs some time to really click.
Wild Sweet Orange - We Have Cause to Be Uneasy
This band reminds me of Manchester Orchestra and that can only ever be a good thing. I listened to this album a lot this year, but certainly not enough.
