20. Wymond Miles – “The Thirst” (2012)
All manner of sounds from the mid-80s have rushed back into indie-rock in recent years, goth very much included. But not many records have captured the feeling of that Cure/Echo and the Bunnymen high point more successfully than Fresh and Onlys’ guitarist Wymond Miles. His album, Under the Pale Moon, is one of this year’s best in any rock sub-section. It was released by Brooklyn’s Sacred Bones Records. who really can’t get enough credit in bringing the style back in to relevance.
