Best Music Of 2015 Staff Picks – Gemma Mastroianni

How long have you been with Live in Limbo and what do you do for the site?

November 2015, I write Music Reviews.

What were your three favourite albums of 2015?

 1. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell – Fluid, Emotion, and not one song that bored me.

2. Father John Misty – I Love You, Honeybear – Well, it’s Father John Misty. He is a God.

3. Drake, Future –What A Time To Be Alive – It was unexpected.

What was the most underrated album of 2015?

Pink Strat – Bahamas – Did not receive as much recognition as it deserves – it has beautiful instrumentals that you can feel emotion within, and the lyrics finish it even more beautifully.

What were your three favourite songs of 2015?

1.    Drake,Future – Big Rings – Always has the ability to pump me and my friends up.

2. Woman – City and Colour –  This song really gets to me emotionally, and it was cool to see Dallas Green do an extensive length for the song, because it is not as common for him.

3. Tyler, The Creator – SMUCKERS
