By Maryam Hassan

Kevin Devine


Top 3 Albums

St. Vincent – s/t
To date her most confident, accessible, far out album, all at once – an iconic, aesthetic-cementing accomplishment.

Angel Olsen – Burn Your Fire For No Witness
My most listened to record this year. Spooky, haunting, funny in a David Lynch way, Leonard Cohen & Roy Orbison & 2am southern gothic isolation, beautiful and far

Sun Kil Moon – Benji
Bummer he seems like such a crotchety bastard, because Mark Kozelek makes intense and singular and uncompromising music, finding cracked beauty & deep mystery in life at its most matter of fact and mundane.

Pick for 2015

Field Mouse – smart, swirling, fun guitar rock from New York/Philadelphia, reminds me of lots of things I like while sounding comfortably like itself.
