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. First Aid Kit - Palomino
2. Big Joanie - Back Home
3. Sarathy Korwar - Kalak
A quiet month for me.
Didn’t like the new First Aid Kit album on first listens but revisited it after a brilliant gig at Village Underground. A very good album it turns out; not a patch on The Lion’s Roar but that’s a hugely special album for me.
The new Big Joanie is great. Seen them live twice after their album launch at Rough Trade East. Seem like a lovely bunch and there’s some great tracks on it.
Liked Sarathy Korwar’s new one but only only heard it once and that’s another I’ll definitely go back to.
Nothing else really grabbed me much. Gave the new Weyes Blood album as I’ve a ticket for her gig next year. Her Front Row Seat To Earth album was stunning and the follow up was good but not great for me. The new one just bored me. Sounded like outro music to a slushy or cheesy Netflix film but nothing good like The Princess Switch series but something rubbish. Inevitably I’ll revisit before the gig.
Always a lot of great recommendations from you guys about albums that I’ve missed or overlooked. Not sure what else is out tomorrow except so I’ll see what you guys come up with.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 4th December and 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.
