DiS Users' May 2017 Album Of The Month


#1

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.

I was on holiday this month and had a few gigs their and spent most of my listening time revisiting albums of the artists I was to see. I’ve heard very little this month and so my choices currently are:

I’ll check out some of this month’s releases and will post my picks later.

Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 4th June 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.

Need to put more time in to Perfume Genius and Forest Swords next week before answering this. Also waiting for my copy of Jlin - Black Origimai to arrive. If all those deliver as promised it should be a good month.

A lot of love for Ian William Craig EP of re-worked tracks from Centres. Demen sounds promising, and i’ve not heard the new Roll The Dice LP yet.

I find Mac Demarco very annoying now.
