Ah missed the deadline. Oh well wouldn’t have made any difference to the rankings. Also I didn’t listen to very much new stuff this month

  1. Told Slant - Point the Flashlight and Walk
  2. Cower - Boys

I forgot to add mine too. wouldn’t have made a difference (mine never do) but here they are for completion:

  1. Vennart - In The Dead, Dead Wood
  2. Tired Lion - Breakfast For Pathetics
  3. Smashing Pumpkins - Cyr
  4. Killer Be Killed - Reluctant Hero
  5. Lil Uzi Vert / Future - Pluto x Baby Pluto

  1. AC/DC - Power Up

Exceptional album from Mike Vennart. Combines everything great about his solo stuff with the massive sound of early Oceansize. Thanks for whoever recommended Tired Lion, a great album. Smashing Pumpkins was better than i thought after repated listens but still suffers from a lack of editing. Another great album from the supergroup Killer Be Killed (Soulfly, Dillinger, Mastodon, Converge).

as always, thanks for doing this!

Finally heard this one. Didn’t realise it was out for quite a while. I thought it came out last week.

Anyway, brilliant album.
