KSPU Top 5 Albums, 2015: AnnMarie Ulskey & Liz Gruchala-Gilbert

First up, we have the top 5 favs from KSPU's own AnnMarie! 

AT.LONG.LAST. / A$AP- This ode to A$AP yams leaves me breathless. A$AP Rocky has had my heart since day one. The psychedelic aspect of this album definitely leaves me feeling like I need to go for a trip. 

Surf /  Donnie Trump and The SOX- When his album was released last spring I had to turn it off until after finals. And the fact that it was FREE. That was a bold move. I still listen to this album frequently, regardless of all the time that has passed. So. Good. Chancellor and Donnie did us a solid. 

Urban Flora / Alina Baraz & Galimatias -While this is only an EP I pray to God that they will release more. With Alina's sexy voice and Galimatias velvety beats, this EP is lit. These chill vibes are perfect for those late Seattle nights. 

Tetsuo & Youth / Lupe Fiasco- This album has been more subtle then his other albums and that worked in his favor. The nostalgic lyrics provide a new perspective on the mind of Fiasco, he does not seem to be settling for radio music. 

Boys Don't Cry / Frank Ocean- Frank Ocean was suppose to come out with his new album in JUNE but he did not. I, and Adele, have been waiting very patiently for this album to drop. I am hoping that it will drop before 2016. So assuming that it will be super hot fire (as heather would say), I am putting it as album 5. Let's be real. #allhailfrank
