January had a ton of great new albums and music videos from the likes of James Blake, Ty Segall, JAY-Z, and Django Django; and it also featured some interesting trailers for Ant-Man and the Wasp, The China Hustle, and The Death of Stalin. We've highlighted some of the best drops over the month and now we're ready to crown the best album, movie trailer, and music video.
While Django Django's previous efforts felt a bit more artsy in intention, the experimentation on Marble Skies feels done with the sole purpose of creating something fun. And it is fun, it's a lighthearted, head nodding romp full of brilliant melodies and earworm hooks. It's almost impossible not to be pulled into their joyous orbit.
