Because sometimes, you just haven't had any time to check out any new music. We know.

So here they are: the Top 10 Albums of this current quarter (we're talking literal quarters, not financial). We had a tough time deciding because, actually, everything that made the shortlist should've been included. We could've made it the Top 12 Albums. Could've been Top 15, probably. But no, we've condensed this all down for you – ten is a nice number.

Jenny Hval - Apocalypse, girl

"Death and rebirth, questions and answers, dissonance and melodiousness make their final movements on the record. Apocalypse, girl deals in big ideas about life and society but does so in a way that that feels intimate and personal. Most of this stems from Hval's continued use of the first person, which allows us to feel as though we are gazing into the life of the singer, even in the record's more abstract moments - perhaps more so for the psychological insight they grants us."

GABI - Sympathy

"Sympathy hurts. The emotional response to the record is physical, visceral, and yet there's something oddly calming about it. Often this is down to the sense of space afforded to the vocals and instruments. Often records pack themselves so dense with detail that it can feel almost claustrophobic - this isn't necessarily a bad thing - but on Sympathy the production offers a cavernous, spacious sound that provides a level of comfort."

Torres - Sprinter

"Her lyrics concern understanding our vulnerability regardless of how debilitating it may feel. The captivating character of this record comes from her skill as a songwriter to be both fragile in her insecurities while taking everything in her stride. Sprinter is a vital album."

Waxahatchee - Ivy Tripp

"Ultimately, Ivy Tripp is the best record in Crutchfield's discography, but her rise is undoubtedly continuing. Where she will plateau remains to be seen, but she is already making her mark as one of America's premier songwriters and she shows no signs of stopping."

Chastity Belt - Time To Go Home

"Chastity Belt has absolutely obliterated the notion of a sophomore slump. Instead, Time to Go Home is an unrepentant triumph that will ultimately establish the group has one of the most important musical voices showcased in 2015." Read our review of the album by heading here.



Elvis Depressedly - New Alhambra

"New Alhambra is a high mark for Elvis Depressedly. The record's ability to be simultaneously dense and accessible, joyful and thoughtful, inspiring and cautionary, allows it to make a case for being an essential record for anyone in their twenties." Read our review of the album by heading here.



East India Youth - Culture Of Volume

"It might seem like East India Youth has moved closer towards pop, but that's an illusion. This album is perhaps even more ambitious than its predecessor and, unlike East India Youth's debut, finds the artist stepping out from the shadows to produce a stunning, transformative electronic record."

Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment - Surf

"Through 16 sonic experiences, Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment provide the results of their anticipated genre-less collaboration. "#Surf is for the people. Feel like I'm watching my baby grow up too fast. Thank you to everyone who's listening," brainchild Donnie tweeted following the surprise release. But it's us that should be thankful."

Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside

"I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside is an exceptionally realised and meaningful work from an artist looking well beyond turn up culture in the pursuit of something deeper and longer lasting." Read our review of the album by heading here.



Everything Everything - Get To Heaven

"They've attempted to use our letters, our syntax, our language, to create a new way of communicating with us, so the very least we should do is talk about it." Read our review of the album by heading here.
