Last one of the year. It’s been a great year too.
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. Vera Sola - Shades
2. Fightmilk - Not With That Attitude
3. Art Brut - Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!
A great month. An absolute gem of an album from Vera Sola. I had this album as my joint third of the year. I saw her twice live in recent weeks. Fans of Cat Power, Sharon Van Etten should definitely check it out. I didn’t realise that she was Dan Akyroyd’s daughter until yesterday. Not that it makes any difference; just a bit of trivia.
A great fun album by Fightmilk. An excellent album launch gig at The Shacklewell Arms too. The album has been on repeat on my earphones and at home all month.
Art Brut back to form and it’s good to have them back.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 9th December and so you’ll have over a week to listen to tomorrow’s releases before choosing
