Synthy Nominees for Album of the Year

Synthy Awards Bandcamp Album OTY

Alright! We’ve made it to the end…the last category of the Synthies (and if I had to guess, the one you’ve been waiting on the most). Much like the EP of the Year award, there’s no possible way to have everyone’s favorites on this list. It’s just not. There could be a list of 30 nominees and the list would still be too short to capture all the great work that’s been done this year. What you have below is a good mix of what the year in synthwave sounded like at my desk in 2017. When I wasn’t writing about a specific album or review, these are the records I had pumping into my headphones, playing in my tape deck, or spinning on my record player. You’ve got some well known, established acts mingled with artists who are the definition of DIY. That’s what’s so great about synthwave…good music is good music, no matter who records it or where. Check out the nominees below and get ready to vote!
