Until this week I was certain my choice for the best new album of 2015 was going to be Wolf Alice’s My Love is Cool. Now the L.A. based alternative band Silversun Pickups have decided to make that a much tougher decision with their late September release of Better Nature.
This epic album contains ten stellar tracks, none of which disappoint, including what I think is the best single song of 2015, a post-apocalyptic track entitled “Ragamuffin.” This amazing song sounds so much like it belongs on the Interstellar soundtrack.
Other favorites include:
- “Circadian Rhythym (Last Dance)”
- “Pins and Needles”
- “Nightlight” – their current single, which sounds like it could be the theme song for Halloween
- “Friendly Fires”
- “The Wild Kind”
- “Cradle (Better Nature)”
Great stuff from beginning to end on this superb album. Enjoy!
