Think of the first bracket as a "Top Ten" (though there are more than ten records). The second bracket is a list of good albums or EPs that, for various reasons, didn't make it into the top selection. Most years there are releases I buy late or reconsider later, hence the last bracket.

Titles are links to the Bandcamp page if available. Yes, there are more records listed than in past years because I thought it was an especially good year for records and decided I didn't need to stick to the self-imposed limits of past years (also, if Sault can put out six records in a year I can sort three of them into a single shared slot because I don't want to choose between them).
