Long-running music blog Gorilla Vs Bear‘s year-end lists are always pretty different from your average Best Albums list, albeit in a way that fits in with its trippy dreampop tastes. They just published their 2017 list and GvsB’s top five all definitely fit in with their sonic worldview: Yaeji at #1 for her pair of 2017 EPs; Kelly Lee Owens‘ great debut album at #2, Montreal’s TOPS at #3 with Sugar at the Gate; Aldous Harding, who topped Rough Trade’s 2017 list, is at #4 with Party; and Laurel Halo‘s Dust at #5. Elsewhere on the Top 60 you’ll find Kendrick Lamar, John Maus, Grizzly Bear, King Krule, Lana Del Rey, Angel Olsen, Shabazz Palaces, SZA, Alvvays, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Playboi Carti, and more.

Check out the full list of GvsB’s Albums of the Year below.
