Vote for your favourite album and also your second and third choices. 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 three mentioned as 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. No joint positions please. Sorry to be a pedant.
Your album of the month will get three points, 2nd placed album two points and 3rd placed album one point. If you name only one album I’ll give that three points. If you name two albums I’ll score them with three and two points accordingly
- Waxahatchee - Out In The Storm
- Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds From Another Planet
- Fightmilk - Pity Party
Both Waxahatchee and Japanese Breakfast albums are great. Both previous Waxahatchee albums are better than the latest for me and both made my AOTY top fives in the year of their release. Impressive that Katie Crutchfield has had such strong run of album releases. Her sister’s album earlier this year is brilliant too.
An interesting change of sound for Japanese Breakfast from their last album. Jane Cum remains my favourite song of theirs. I saw them three times live last year and remember them playing a new song that I now know to be Machinist. I didn’t like it at the time and thought I wouldn’t like their change of direction. Luckily I was wrong; an excellent album.
A brilliant EP from a DiS user Scott Cheg’s band Fightmilk. Great live too. Definitely worth checking out. I played their song New Year’s Eve a lot on my headphones over the last few weeks.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 6th August and so you’ll have over a week to listen to today’s releases before choosing.
Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your choices clear please.
