VOTE FOR YOUR TOP FIVE ALBUMS!!
Vote for your favourite five albums. Make your selections clear please as it makes tallying up the scores easier. If you list a whole bunch of albums without making your selections clear I’ll take the first five mentioned as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. No joint positions please. Sorry to be a pedant.
Your album of the month will get five points, 2nd placed album four points, 3rd placed album three points, 4th placed album two points and 5th one point. If you name only one album I’ll give that five points. If you name two albums I’ll score them with five and four points etc. You get the message.
1. Ishmael Ensemble - Visions Of Light
2. Orla Gartland - Woman On The Internet
3. The Joy Formidable - Into The Blue
Ishmael Ensemble are a new band for me. Not usually my go to genre. A sort of mellow jazz electronica. Maybe a mix between The Comet Is Coming and Portishead on occasions. Whatever genre they are, that album is brilliant. Brilliant live act and nice guys too. Easily my top pick of the month.
The Orla Gartland album is a good pop album. Perhaps easy to dismiss on first listen as generic but gets pretty good after repeated listens.
The Joy Formidable do their usual thing on their new one. Good album.
There’s a few others I’ve listened to but will revisit them, check out your recommendations and tomorrow’s releases before completing my top 5. I’ve mainly been listening to Fightmilk, Desperate Journalist and Torres this month.
Always a lot of great recommendations from you guys about albums that I’ve missed or overlooked.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 5th September so you’ll have over a week to listen to tomorrow’s releases before choosing.
Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your choices clear please.
