Looking Back: Our Favorite Albums of 2015

Nate Reuss – “Grand Romantic”

1035x1035-MI0003873687“Grand Romantic is definitely my top album of the year. I’m a sucker for sad lyrics hidden within catchy, upbeat tunes. I’m also a sucker for Nate Ruess’ unique voice, especially when paired with Beck’s vocals and instrumentation.” –Melissa

 

Knuckle Puck – “Copacetic”

Knuckle-Puck-Copacetic-760x760“This album is what State Champs’ ‘The Finer Things’ was for me in 2013. Every track hits harder than the last, and keeps me going when all I want to do is give up. I’ve always said Knuckle Puck were the next big thing in pop-punk, and they’re proving it more and more with each album they release. ‘Copacetic’ drove Knuckle Puck to dominate the genre this year, and they proved it with a killer tour to support an absolutely incredible album.” –Tori 

 

Adventures – “Supersonic Home”

Adventures has introduced me to a lot of amazing female fronted bands in this genre that haven’t garnished the attention they deserve. Adventures has created an amazing full length and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for this coming year.” –Asa

Bring Me The Horizon – “That’s The Spirit”

Motion City Soundtrack – “Panic Stations”

Periphery – “Juggernaut”

juggernaut-alpha-54875a2bb0114“I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since this came out, because everything about it still seems so new and amazing every time I put it on. The infectious grooves, soaring vocals, and brilliantly poppy choruses firmly hold their spot sandwiched between the the crushing riffs and explosive beats. This is by far the band’s strongest performance to date on all fronts and will undoubtedly remain a mainstay in my weekly listening for years to come.” -Nick

 

Neck Deep – “Life’s Not Out To Get You”

“It’s a very relatable record. It helps me find a positive outlook on negative situations. It also helps me feel less alone.” –Jasminne
