Favorite LPs//2018

2018 was the year of the surprise. I never expected some of these releases to show up on this list, but I’m very happy they did.

These are the fifteen albums I have enjoyed and recommended the most to family, friends, readers, and complete strangers over the year…basically anybody that will entertain my musical musings.

My number one album of the year? I honestly don’t know. I can’t decide between Andrew W.K.’s uplifting You’re Not Alone, Beach House’s gorgeous 7, and Rhye’s intimate Blood. All three are worth of the number one spot and have been on constant rotation all year.

So without further ado, please enjoy my favorite LPs of 2018 (in alphabetical order) below. And if you haven’t done so already, be sure to take a look at my favorite EPs of 2018 when you’re done here.

Today is my daughter’s birthday. So in honor of my baby girl, here are four incredibly talented ladies that produced some of my favorite tunes this year. And I must say, it was incredibly hard to finalize these picks (spoiler alert: more than one of the LPs below are on my Favorite LPs of 2018 list). The ladies absolutely killed it this year and I love that my daughter is able to grow up listening to such incredible artists.
