1. Cloakroom - Infinity
As I said above, this was probably my most-played album of the year. And it's just an EP (!). You know when you feel like an album was made just for you? This is one of those albums for me. The mix of styles this band employs is almost perfectly tailored to my personal tastes. It's sometimes heavy, sometimes beautiful, a little bit sloppy and unfocused in places, but really just a lot of fun to listen to. The riff on "Sedimentary" has permanently taken up residence in my brain and I don't mind at all.
