DIS album of the year - predictor thread


#1

What will it be? And how different will the user poll result be?

Interesting to see a fair few shouts for Lorde on our Facebook thread


#2

well it won’t be jen cloher
which is a shame as that appears to be greatly overlooked in the EOY polls so far
only rough trade have had it in that I can see


#3

Kelly Lee Owens would be good.

For me the best albums this year probably came from Ibibio Sound Machine, Sinkane, Slowdive, Moon Duo and Snapped Ankles.


#4

Paramore or some shit


#5

What’s all the fuss about KLO? Giving it a few spins at the moment and it sounds like early Warp with some by turns Seefeel / Grimes vocals. And not exactly overwhelmed with interesting tunes or textures either. Will persevere…


#6

Yeah a very DiS record. Solid top five I reckon.

I’d like DiS to show some love to the Seamus Fogarty record coz it’s lovely.


#7

Championing Just Good Pop™: still subversive in 2017.


#8

Converge. The Weather Station or Kelly Lee Owens. # bold predictions


#9

Something quite boring probably but that’s ok.


#10

It’s in my top 10, but I’m aware that my other choices aren’t necessarily that popular with the average DiSer. It’d be a nice foot up for her I guess - better than giving it to Lorde :slight_smile:


#11

protomartyr got a lot of love on the site and the boards (deservedly)


#12

I’m thinking maybe Perfume Genius


#13

will eat my proverbial hat if this happens


#14

that was mostly just me shouting


#15

John Maus ‘Screen Memories’ and the new GSYBE are my albums of the year. Surprised that they’re not mentioned in many of the lists I’ve seen


#16

I reckon:

  1. Kelly Lee Owens
  2. Thundercat
  3. Hooray For The Riff Raff (or a similar curveball of an artist not mentioned here much).

The Riff Raff album is brilliant by the way.


#17

You lot are all


#18

Gonna be Lorde then


#19

I just thought, are you lot predicting what DiS writers will pick or forums?


#20

I dunno
