nme

Iconic UK music weekly NME ceased publication of its print edition in March, after 66 years in existence. The website remains, however, and they’ve just posted their Albums of The Year 2018 list. Like they did in 2016, they’ve chosen The 1975 for the top slot, for the just released A Brief Inquiry Inquiry Into Online Relationships. (The LP just topped SPIN’s list too.) At #2 it’s Arctic MonkeysTranquility Base Hotel & Casino, and their Top 10 also includes IDLES, Shame, Pusha T, Cardi B, and Mitski, and elsewhere on the list is Interpol, Greta Van Fleet (?!?), Gorillaz, The Good the Bad & the Queen, SOPHIE, Robyn, Deafheaven, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, BROCKHAMPTON and more.
