It is certainly too soon for folks to be making any definitive lists for the year in music, but Flavorwire, the entertainment news and critique website by events hub Flavorpill, just shared its list of 25 albums from the first half of the year that they believe should not be overlooked. Among the album’s listed are a few XLR8R favorites, like Beach House’s (pictured above) Teen Dream, Caribou’s Swim, Toro Y Moi’s debut, Causers of This, and Before Today from Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, along with a few we could do without (looking at you, Hole). Check out the whole post, which is filled with lots of links, downloads, and music videos, here.
