SPRING BRINGS MANY things: blossom, lambs and fortunately – with Record Store Day in the middle of it – lots of new album releases. Blur returned with their first album for over a decade. Paul Weller and Young Fathers followed up thought-provoking records with even more innovative visions, while the likes of Leon Bridges, Jamie xx and Matthew E White enhanced their burgeoning reputations.
Following on from our selection of the best releases of the year’s first three months, MOJO’s staff and writers have sprung into action to assemble the best albums of 2015's second quarter (ie. April, May and June), and here are our Top 20.
And don’t forget there’s amazing music from the past to be discovered amongst MOJO’s 10 Best Reissues Of 2015, April to June.
NB. The best albums of 2015 are listed in alphabetical order, not ranked in terms of relative brilliance (yet...).
