Was this a shitty year for alt/indie music? Most of the end of the year lists I have read make it seem like a strong year for hip hop. Not really a genera I usually like but seems like I might need to check out a few albums.
It wasn't a shitty year, it's just that the alt/indie crowd has embraced hip hop now, so it's permeating those lists (Pitchfork/Stereogum) as well as the more traditional fare that that crowd embraces.

Some more bands/artists who released "Indie" albums that I really liked this year:
Alt-J
Father John Misty
Beach House
Grimes
Tame Impala
GOAT
Diiv
Spiritualized
Dirty Projectors
