From Bruce to Best Coast and beyond, 40 of our favorite albums from the last six months

M. Ward, 'A Wasteland Companion'

She and Him's him mixes up folky beauty, rough-cut gems.

Read the RS review: "If Matt Ward tends to be overlooked among indie rock's greatest talents, it's because dude hangs back – behind Zooey Deschanel in She and Him, behind Conor Oberst and Jim James in Monsters of Folk, behind the scenes as collaborator . . . But his own LPs show why everyone wants to be his friend."
