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. Greentea Peng - Man Made
2. Emotional Oranges - The Juicebox
3. Wolf Alice - Blue Weekend
4. Johanna Samuels - Excelsior!
5. White Flower - Day By Day
Really love the feel of the Greentea Peng album. A brilliant jazzy, soulful hip hop summer record and had it on repeat for about a week during the heatwave earlier in the month. Highlights tracks for me are Free My People and Meditation. I didn’t mind the album’s long length as the album flowed so well for me.
Never heard of Emotional Oranges before and another great record that’s usually not my go to genre and another perfect summer record. My only negative is that it’s a bit too short. Worth a listen if you haven’t yet.
Liked the new Wolf Alice but after several listens it still hasn’t cracked and despite liking it not sure if I’ll go back to it too often.
Johanna Samuels’ album is a good folky rock album and White Flower’s shoegaze album is worth a look into too.
I thought I’d start the ball rolling before tomorrow’s releases. Some promising albums out tomorrow. Modest Mouse have a new one although for me they’ll never top Lonesome; a near perfect album and found their others hit and miss. Lucy Dacus has one out and John Grant too.
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 4th July 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.
