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.
My choices (currently) :
1. Haiku Salut - There Is No Elsewhere
2. Suede - The Blue Hours
3. Dilly Dally - Heaven
- Metric - Art Of Doubt
- Gazelle Twin
Brilliant Haiku Salut album. I do most of my music listening whilst travelling and it soothed a lot of commutes to and from work after a shit day. Really looking forward to their lamp show next week. Occupy is a great track; do check them out if you haven’t heard their stuff.
A very good album from Suede. Saw them live a lot last week (four times in four days) and the album is a worthy follow up to NIght Thoughts. I gave it a 7/10 before but I’ll bump the score to a 8.1 Pitchfork score after further listens.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I’ll keep this thread open until Sunday 7th September and so you’ll have over a week to listen to todays’s releases before choosing.
Just currently listening to the new Joy Formidable whilst I type this. Sounds ok. It’ll be their year finally. I’ve downloaded the new Amber Arcades too for tomorrow morning’s commute to work. I’ll see if they make any changes in my top three. I look forward to your recommendations too.
