We blow Music UP in the 2010s. Part of that was structuraliTunes begat TIDAL and Spotify and Apple Music and Vine and TikTok, all of which offer new ways for the US to consume Best Albums and songs out there, but also put emphasis on certain artists and genres over others, by very nature of curation. Some artists turn their noses UP at this New World Order and do things their way, dropping albums in the middle of night, on HBO, on Saturday afternoon in summertime. Others play into formula, using what theyd been Give To game system and get their art heard as widely as possible. No matter How You Look At It, though, certain artists spend decades releasing some of the best albums around, ones not only of higher quality but also bodies of work that fundamentally change music's very DNA, way we consume it, and the way other musicians make it. Here, according to GQ contributors past and present, are thirteen Albums that Get US To where Music Exist At this very moment. The music was her most exhilarating everbold, ambitious, and complex. It was exceptional. Because She Was Beyonce. Caity Weaver though Only Year Old, EL Mal Querer has already solidified Rosalias Place as Creator behind some of the Decade's most urgent, forward-thinking Music. In a time when listeners crave more tangible connections to our cultures and our pasts, Rosalia reaches backwards in Time and modernizes her countrys traditional art. In Spanish singers Take on flamenco, familiar crooning pleas of romance and folk melodies are still there, but theyre entwine with heavy beats, synthesize vocals, and sharp kicking clatters. Rosalias vision, buoy by EL Guinchos Next-level production, seamlessly brings local folkloric music tradition to the global stage. Only three years into her professional career, Rosalia shows US what it means to synthesize the beauty of New and Old to deliver a truly distinct Pop masterpiece. Camila Perez expanding his Sonic palette to draw on elements of Dance and R & B, Parker concocts immersive Disco Trip. The Songs on Currents are as heady as his earlier work, except theyre also designed to get bodies moving. And that They Have: Tame Impala boast nine-figure streaming stats and graduated to the headlining Coachella slot earlier this year. Parker himself, meanwhile, has become an in-demand collaborator, answering calls from Travis Scott, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, and SZA in the last few years alone. Currents matter because of how they reflect listening habits in Spotify Era, and the path forward that It Light For Rock Music, drifting Back and forth Between Styles, paying little mind to outdated notions of genre or instrumentation. Its success demonstrates just how far open-eared music can reach. In a 2015 interview, Parker mentioned that he had previously stopped himself from pursuing certain kinds of inspiration because he imagined indie-Music snobs would turn their nose UP at it. That is no longer an issue for him.

Ratking: So It Goes (2014)

As suggested by the painstakingly detailed map of New York City that covers So It go, Ratkings 2014 debut is a deep dive into their hometown. Storming from the stoops of Harlem to the bustling storefronts of Canal Street are gaptooth spitfire Wiki and languid daydreamer Hak, whose relentless banter never loses steam. Producer Sporting Lifes ' abstract, sample-heavy soundscapes conjure the chaos of modern concrete junglea with sound that evokes the dissonance of 70s no wave and the experimentation of 90s hip-hop. Together, Ratking paint a compelling City portrait: Remove Ya addresses its rampant stop-and-frisk abuses, while jazzy Snow Beach chastises gentrification for poisoning the Big Apple. So It go show NYC as it really is: pretty, gritty, and gross, forever restless and forever alive.-Quinn Moreland

Titus Andronicus: The Monitor (2010)

As if you need more evidence that the traditional boundary between mainstream and indie is becoming ever more difficult to delineate, consider that movie-star-marrying Top-40 idol and shy Dream-pop duo from Baltimore's avant-underground each released albums in 2010 with practically the same title. But if Beach House's Teen Dream didn't quite have the same chart impact as Katy Perry's Teenage Dream, album represents no less of a populist breakthrough for its makers. Teen Dream does little to alter Beach House's core characteristics-slow-motion beats laid with hazy keyboard drones, rippling guitar figures, and Victoria Legrand's melancholic melodies-but greatly amplifies them to the point of redefining the band's essence, from that of introverted knee-gazers into an assure, emotionally assertive force. Liberate from textural fog that permeate Beach House's first two albums, Legrand's voice exposes its rough edges, greatly enhancing sense of longing and hurt underpinning songs like lover of Mine and Silver Soul. Advance copies of Teen Dream first started circulating last December, and its billowy synth lines and sleigh-bell accents make it perfect winter listening. But the album makes even more sense as warm weather arrive-Teen Dream captures Beach House in the midst of great thaw, frosty surfaces melting away to reveal full-blood passion.-Stuart Berman

Iceage: Beyondless (2018)

These are my famous last words shriek Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl at the start of Bridge Burning, opener on chaos-inducing career magnum Opus Wasting Light. After a lacklustre spell of releases towards the end of the noughties, Grohl and his buddies bounce back in absolutely thunderous in 2011. Record entirely analogue with producer Butch Vig, Wasting Light is an album which takes Zero prisoners and leaves not even one stone unturned. Bridge Burnings sonic assault is merely a tone setter, taking you on a wilde ride which includes frenzied White Limo, make-for-stadiums these Days and caterwauling finale Walk. Walk is one of the best songs Foo Fighters have ever release, on par with Best Of You and Everlong. Theres something very special about Wasting Light, for not only is it sound of the band on top form, but it is also a stark reminder that theyll never back down either.

Soccer Mommy: Clean (2018)

According to Liz Itkowski: Clear-eyed and sincere, Clean contains plenty of youthful earnestness. Lyrically, Sophie Allison is self-aware, keenly attune to her insecurities. Her world has pop-punk familiarity, like Blue Album-Weezer and Liz Phair. And while Allison dedicates several lines to wistful jealousy of other girls, it is hard to not think she might be cooler than them already. Allison recalled Love of Avril Lavigne in January 2018 interview With Fader: Under My Skin was the first CD I ever own. Thats how this person came about. There is a pop-punk backbone to Clean, so it is easy to imagine Sk8tr Boi singer as a very early favorite of Allisons. Even against dreamy Deerhoof-style production, Soccer Mommys debut is consistently fun, with freshly journaled lyrics on top of charming lo-fi rock.

Arcade Fire: The Suburbs (2010)

Suburbs is like an audio analogue to Richard Linklaters ' 2014 film Boyhood: both messy but privilege coming-of-age stories set in Texas, ambitiously execute and critically adore. Yet after grappling with death and religion on their first two records, when Arcade Fire turn their collective eye toward leaving home in the Suburbs, concept seems almost small-scale by comparison. The music, of course, was anything but, with multiple two-part songs, recurring musical motifs, and new beginnings pepper throughout the albums 16 tracks. Loosely inspired by the Houston-area childhood of band leader Win Butler and his brother Will, album innately understood how urban Sprawl could engender claustrophobia in the hearts of young and strange, and that this experience may look different in the rearview mirror. It portrays the dread of suburbia as manifested in power-tripping cops and dead shopping malls rising like mountains beyond mountains, but it also fondly remembers the way the world could feel patient and unpretentious. Best of all, sound was vast and electric and opulent in ways that backdrop could never be, capturing narrators ' dreams and frustrations and pointing Arcade Fire toward their dance-rock future with stunning Sprawl II.-Jillian Mapes

Grimes: Visions (2012)

Claire Bouchers ' first two albums as Grimes submerge her pop instincts deep within experimental manipulations. Visions, her third record, glints with excitement of newly unlocked talent and the thrill of wielding it. Its songs are twisted flashes of pop melodies lay over frothy techno pulses, where something vaguely sinister underlines the sweetness of vocals. The album operates on its own unconventional timekeepingmany, tracks are over four minutes, many others under twoand in its own unfamiliar yet accessible space. Its beats sound close but cavernous, feeling out dance groove in the dark of Circumambient and erasing and rewriting itself half a dozen times on Oblivion. There are ballads, too, if that what you call song like Skin, festoon with gothic filigrees. Almost eight years later, Bouchers ' human-generate cyborg pop still feels enigmatic.-Anna Gaca

Carly Rae Jepsen: EMOTION (2015)

Upon reflection, it is small wonder that Carly Rae Jepsens second album doesnt fall apart after its opening trackthe saxophone-driven widescreen romance anthem Run Away With Me sets expectations so stratospherically high. But EMOTION is so carefully crafted to mine a vein of precise emotions: those that fill spaces between infatuation and love, kiss-off and heartbreak, confusion and clarity. It also overstuff beyond belief with hooks, as Run Away, Making Most of Night, Gimme Love and kaleidoscopic prom-Night slow burn of All that exemplify. Due to its botched 2015 major-label rollout, album was not even close to a chart-topping smash it often sounds like it should be. Jepsens 2019 follow-up, dedicate, shows that the songwriting and earnest artistry of EMOTION was no fluke, but the latter is already becoming a cult classic: paranoia thriller series Mr. Robot recently uses Run Away in the climactic scene, and something tells me that first in a long line of cinematic homages to CRJ.-Liam Green

Beyonce: Lemonade (2016)

A peculiar thing happened to Beyonce in the run-up to 2013: people began regarding her pattern of perpetual triumph smugly. She was the Recording Industry Association of Americas ' top-selling artist from 2000-2009. She had launched a viral choreography / leotard craze. She had set a record for most Grammy wins by a female artist in one night. Having spent years doggedly charting path to success, new decade seems to find her barreling down it. But somewhere along the line, public begin to talk about Beyonce less as a specific person than as a concept. Admiration morph into hammy, patronizing fawning. Self-evidence of her talent become kind of punchline, her name lazy shorthand for greatness. The attitude was not that Beyonce wasnt good, but that she was so good one neednt bother thinking about her critically. She could be dismissed with compliment. Her success was predictable. The surprise release of Beyonce in 2013 was a disconcerting reveal for those who had become blase about Beyonce's abilities; thrilling establishment of the scale of her calculatory powers and creative control. It was not, it turn out, joke that Beyonce could do anything. She could release an entire album of secretly recorded music and videos in the middle of night with no warning, marketing campaign, or even physical discs, and watch it become the fastest selling album in the history of iTunes. She could make people buy full albums in age of singles. She could make people buy full album in an age of no one paying for music.

Blood Orange: Cupid Deluxe (2013)

By late 2013, Dev Hynes had established himself as the go-to vibey songwriter of the moment. His tracks with Solange and Sky Ferreira establish a new sound in pop, merging slinky guitar with full-on lamentation and heartbreak. These bummer jams, spike with extra catchy catharsis, succeed because they felt real, but Hynes had yet to fully capitalize on his talents as a solo artist. That changed with Cupid Deluxe. Leadoff track Chamakay serves as a mission statement of sorts, with Hynes using all his tricks at once: women harmonizing, echoed percussion, romantic pleading, gurgling bass. The album follow similar kitchen-sink-funk feel, as Hynes pilfers the best bits from disco, soul, and R & B, creating a hybrid sound that's inimitable and vastly appealing. At times, breathy saxophone wafts in from nowhere, as if things were sexy enough. After Cupid Deluxe, Hynes further opened his sound: His subsequent albums are deeper, more complex, and more adventurous. But they never sound as undeniably funky.-Matthew Schnipper

9: Robyn: Body Talk

Initially late-90s crossover success from Sweden With Show Me Love, Robyn had, until Body Talk, always been whisper about in pop circles like cult favorite, secret worth keeping private because she was ours, and some secrets are worth keeping. But some secrets are worth sharing, and Body Talk makes Robyn yours as much as she was once ours. It was an album with three parts that started the decade with a bang, indestructible, futuristic body of work that coated layers of sadness and solitude and resilience in some of the most shimmering production pop had ever see. Body Talk proves not only that Robyn had a dog in a fight, but also that she was so light years beyond that very same fight that she won it, walked away, and moved on to something new before we had a chance to process whatd happen. She won a war no one knew needed fighting. I think well look back at 00s as pops golden age. Some of it trickled over into the early 10sKaty. Perrys ' Teenage Dream forever changed what genre could do; Tegan and Saras Heartthrob took up blueprints left for them and inspired a new generation of singers; and Robyn proved that Pitchfork and pop could coexist in beautiful harmonybut, it was hard for anyone else to measure up to even half of Body Talk s towering height. With Dancing on My Own and Call Your Girlfriend, Robyn takes bar by which we measure success and breaks it in half over her knee without breaking sweat. Time Machine and Hang With Me still, in 2019, sound fresh and innovative in their slickness and depth. U Should Know Better find Robyn trading bars and carrying her weight with Snoop Dogg without falling on her face. Most importantly, Body Talk holds a mirror up to industry and says " Show up and prove yourself or leave. It was a gauntlet without ever meaning to be so, unassuming in its perfection but intensely, necessarily challenging to those who follow suit. And though many try, no one live up to Robyn except herself. Well, forgive the eight-year break between albums if it means a level of quality like hers.
