Kanye West

Yeezus

(Def Jam)

A marginal rapper who’s made the most out of this connections in the hip-hop world, Kanye West delivers his most experimental album with the industrial strength Yeezus. He pushes the boundaries of what’s considered hip-hop in dissonant songs such as “I’m In It” and “Send It Up.”

Sigur Ros

Keveikur

(XL Recordings)

Because the guys in this Icelandic band sing in their own made-up language, it’s impossible to know just what they’re trying to say. But the songs on this album succeed simply because of their textures.
