I've roughly just gone for the new releases I've listened to the most, ranked in that order, as I'm really struggling to say what stands out as the best! The new artists aren't totally blowing me away, and the stuff by established acts is far from being the best work by any of them.

01 - Bat for Lashes - The Bride
02 - Emmy the Great - Second Love

03 - Lady Gaga - Joanne

04 - Regina Spektor - Remember Us to Life

05 - The Anchoress - Confessions of a Romance Novelist

06 - Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool

07 - Weezer - The White Album

08 - Childish Gambino - "Awaken, My Love!"

09 - Anohni - Hopelessness

10 - Saul Williams - MartyrLoserKing
