    The ones I can recall in no order.
    Beach House- 7.
    Interpol- Marauder.
    Wild Nothing- Indigo.
    Johnny Jewel- Themes for Television.
    Moon Diagrams- Lifetime of Love.

    I know I've bought some good albums from Bandcamp that I cannot recall at the moment as well.
    Hate to say I haven't heard the new Alice in Chains album.

    Would love to see Clutch revisit their earlier metal influence from albums like ‘Transnational Speedway League’ or the ‘Impetus’ ep instead of the weird borderline jam band crap they’ve been doing for years now. They used to change things up from album to album and I always figured at some point they’d swing back around to the metal stuff.. but, nope. They keep doing albums like this.

    No love for No Age's Snares Like A Haircut? Great album that was getting tons of praise when it came out very early in 2018. They're great live, too.
