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.
1.Petal - Magic Gone
2. Virginia Wing - Ecstatic Arrow
3. LUMP - LUMP
4. Neko Case - Hell-On
5.SOPHIE - Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides
I really enjoyed Petal and Virginia Wing. I hadn’t heard of either prior to their releases. LUMP were great fun at their album launch at Rough Trade East.
I liked Neko Case and SOPHIE. I’ll have to give both further listens especially Neko Case as I’ve her gig in a few months at The Barbican.
I’m hoping at Let’s Eat Grandma’s new album tomorrow is as good as the hype. I liked their debut and saw them live during Vision Festival a couple of years ago. Crap name obviously but give them a chance if you haven’t heard their stuff.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 8th July and so you’ll have over a week to listen to tomorrow’s releases before choosing.
I’ll do a six monthly album of the year vote but purely from the top 10s of my AOTM threads after this count up. It’s been vaguely interesting in previous years. Always a good place to see different user’s tastes and likes.
