The Alternative Music Awards 2018

Posted: by The Editor

Each year, we collect up all the favorite albums from our staff and assemble our Top 50 List, but we also nominate a bunch of albums for our 4 yearly awards: Album of the Year, Best Debut, Most Underrated Album, and Best Non LP. The winners are decided by staff vote, and I have always been very happy with our winners. This year is no different.

Take a look at our winners below, and then check out our full Top 50 List.

The winner of our award for Best Debut is… SOCCER MOMMY!

The winner of our award for Best Non-LP is… Boygenius!

The winner of our award for Most Underrated is… Drug Church!

The winner of our award for Album of the Year is… HOP ALONG!

Hope you enjoyed our picks this year, and more importantly, we hope you found some awesome music.
