Rough Trade's Best Albums of the Year: Big Thief, Cigarettes After Sex, The National and Parquet Courts





Rough Trade's Best Albums of the Year: Big Thief, Cigarettes After Sex, The National and Parquet Courts

If you ask us "how's the NYC scene doing these days?" we'll respond with a mixed feelings kind of answer. But even though the local scene is undoubtedly going through some rough times (mostly caused by the excessive cost of the city and the extreme gentrification of Williamsburg), it has still managed to express some very fine music in 2017. Or at least that's what Rough Trade believes, since they just released a list of the Best 20 Records of 2017 that features four albums released by NYC based artists:

Big Thief's Capacity (on the cover of our Winter 2016 issue of The Deli) placed in 4th position. 

Cigarettes After Sex's self titled debut LP placed in 6th position. 

- The National's Sleep Well Beast placed in 14th position

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts' Milano placed in 16th position.

Four out of twenty, that's A LOT, congrats NYC scene!

Here's a YouTube playlist of these artists' most popular songs from their 2017 releases.
