Let’s face it, this year was not the most ideal, in any way; however, we were able to get some pretty fantastic music out of it. So for this blog post, I’ve decided to list what I think are some of the best, indie pop, indie rock and alternative albums of this year. I’ve linked every album to their title so please, feel free to listen and let me know what you think.

Disclaimer: In nature of this blog, I’ve limited this list to albums that fall mainly into indie rock, indie pop and alternative. That being said, masterpieces such as Lemonade, Coloring Book, Blonde,  Awaken, My Love!, or albums that fall mainly under electronic or hard rock are not listed for said reason.

Let’s get on with the list shall we?
