I decided on my 1-5 largely based on listening frequency. Not sure I’d make any changes in retrospect but a few standouts that didn’t make my top 5. Absolutely love all 5 of the above.
Like many others, I didn’t consider Mt Eerie, an album I have been in awe of.
Aldous Harding - Been listening to this album a lot the last few days & it really is wonderful. Genuinely goosebump inducing.
Spoon - Not their best album, but another really enjoyable Spoon album = a great album
Liars - surprised at lack of love for this. Think this was a big improvement on Mess
Nick Hoppner - This was my favourite electronic album of the year, real gem.
Mogwai - Their best in a long time, their soundtrack work bled into this with some lovely results.
Kelly Lee Owens - Cracking record, just dead cool.
