The 40 Best Indie-Rock Albums of 2023

Mitski, Yo La Tengo, Sufjan Stevens, and more

It was a great year for charming guitar bands, confessional singer-songwriters, post-punk revivalists, power poppers, and roots rockers. Artists and bands we’ve been loving for a while made big leaps forward (in fact, our top album is by a band that made such a big leap they ended up releasing their long-awaited debut on a major-label). Beloved stars made capstone classics, and a ton of great new voices made themselves heard.
