KMMR's TOP 50 ALBUMS OF 2018 // 50-41

So here we kick off the top albums list, with the first ten that scrape into the top 50 list. It's been a long year dominated by the mess of the politics of the world, but in turn that only brings out the best of the musical world. Let's get started right away then, at nuuuuumber fifty...
50. Gabe Gurnsey - Physical
I discovered Gabe Gurnsey's music through the reccomendation of Rough Trade and boy am I glad that I did.

But this album is honest, beautiful and well crafted, I simply just never revisited it which is usually a good indicator for my albums of the year lists.
Typhoon - Offerings
I loved this album so…
