Tiny Mix Tapes’ Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2015

Matana Roberts

TIny Mix Tapes posted their Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2015 list today. Like last year, it’s certainly a good list for anyone who’s tired of seeing the same artists on every list (though it does have Kendrick Lamar, Sufjan Stevens, Future, Bjork, Drake, Joanna Newsom, Carly Rae Jepsen, Grimes and other popular picks). It’s the first list I’ve seen with the Liturgy album, and certainly the only one that has James Ferraro in the top 3. It’s also one of just a few with avant-jazz great Matana Roberts and one of few with Grouper’s band Helen. It also has Sicko Mobb, who just hours ago put out a new song with Jeremih.

There’s a lot of interesting stuff on the list. Read their commentary and intro here and check out the top 50 below…
