Gorilla vs Bear’s Top 50 Albums of 2015 (including Women offshoot Cindy Lee — listen)

Cindy Lee – ‘Act of Tenderness’
Cindy Lee

Gorilla vs Bear has published his Top 50 Albums of 2015 list, writing, “We feel pretty confident proclaiming 2015 the best year for new music this decade, and we’d even go so far as to say it’s been arguably our favorite year in the history of this site.” The list includes Panda Bear, Jamie xx, Grimes, Vince Staples, Leon Bridges, both Beach House albums (Thank Your Lucky Stars is ranked higher), U.S. Girls, Sufjan Stevens, Julia Holter, Young Thug, Toro y Moi, Empress Of, Joanna Newsom, Knxwledge, Molly Nilsson and more. Check out the whole thing below.

The list also includes Cindy Lee, the project that was formed by ex-Women guitarist/singer Patrick Flegel when two of his other bandmates (including his brother Matt) formed Viet Cong. He released the Malenkost tape and the Act of Tenderness album this year, both of which made GvsB’s list (#32 and #5, respectively). You can download both for free at Cindy Lee’s geocities website. Stream the latter below.
