My favourite albums of the year: EL-P – I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead
I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead is the best hip hop album this year. Nothing else I’ve heard has sounded so cohesive and well put together. It may lack a killer hook, but there’s much more substance on this album than most others. “The Over-dramatic Truth” is by far the best track, with it’s dense bass and anger-fuelled chorus.
