Long-running music blog Gorilla Vs Bear just released their Albums of 2018 list which is, as usual, a very eclectic mix of stuff from pop like Ariana Grande and Robyn, to hip hop (Earl Sweatshirt, Playboi Carti), and a lot of the hazy dreampop GvB is known for championing, like Cindy Lee, Tess Roby, Julia Holter and Grouper. They've also got U.S. Girls, Beach House, and Amen Dunes, plus some more obscure choices you may not have heard (Pynkie, Nu Guinea, Channel Tres). GvB's #1 of 2018 is Tirzah's Devotion.

Check out the full Gorilla vs Bear Albums of 2018 list below, and you can listen to all of them at GvB.

Bella Boo, who come in at #9 on the GvB list, play Baby's All Right on Tuesday (12/4) as part of the Swedish Embassy's annual "Sweden Makes Music" showcase with Cherrie, ViVii, and Vacation Forever. That's free with RSVP.
