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. Cat Power - Wanderer
2. Kristen Hersh - Possible Dust Clouds
3. Adrianne Lenker - Abysskiss
4. Swearin’ - Fall Into The Sun
The releases on 5th October were brilliant and they made my top picks. I wasn’t too sure about the new Cat Power album but turns out to be one of her best albums. Her Roundhouse show was damn good too. I’m off to Kristen Hersh’s Rough Trade East gig tonight and that album is as strong as any Throwing Muses album. Great month (or rather week) for releases.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 4th October and so you’ll have over a week to listen to tomorrow’s releases before choosing.
