9. "Music For Cars" - The 1975

Technically, "Music For Cars" is an EP and not a full album, but that matters little because what it lacks in length it makes up for in quality. "Chocolate" is easily the best pop song of this year, featuring an infectious guitar riff and lyrics that just beg to be sung along with despite the fact that the chocolate they're referring to in the song is a code for a drug. "Heads. Cars. Bending" features pitch bended vocals, chopped rhythms, and is completely haunting yet intoxicating. "Me" is an atmospheric ballad that brings the EP to a perfect close and shows that The 1975 are a band to watch in the future, because they can only get bigger from here. Luckily enough, they are hard at work on a full length album, which should be coming out later this year.
