The 2018 DIS forum user album of the year DISCUSSION THREAD


#61

Can we have a definitive ruling regarding whether ‘Twin Fantasy’ - Car Seat Headrest is actually eligible for this poll? Yes, yes it matters.

  • Yes, it counts, it was released in 2018
  • No. It doesn’t. It’s a remake of an earlier album; get outta here Car Seat Headrest, you have no place in the Best Albums of 2018

Not to be that guy but you’ve put Drug Church twice, ya dick!

(Good list tho!)


#63

Aye I know, it’s cuz I moved it up from 20th to 11th (10th when you discount hookworms) but forgot to get rid of the original placing and only noticed after :sweat_smile:


#64

No it doesn’t, cuz he’s shite :wink:

Bonjour tout le monde (remember me ?)

Bit too early for me to chose an album of the year as some great albums were just released last week (Josephine Foster) or will be soon (Hammock).

So far, my top5 might be :
Dante - I Wear Your Weight with Mine
Basement Revolver - Heavy Eyes
Distance, Light & Sky - Gold Coast
Winter - Ethereality
Willower - Fallow (it’s name your price here and really beautiful https://willowermusic.bandcamp.com/album/fallow )

Quite a big gap between the top 2 and the rest. Those two have been nip-tuck all year though. Probably subconsciously went for LEG because they’ve got a better chance of keeping IDLES from top spot.:crossed_fingers:


#70

One of the few records I had no idea how I heard about - quite possibly through a Spotify algorhythm or something? Regardless it’s excellent, had the pleasure of supporting them last month and it was one of my gigs of the year. Think they might be back for a tour around May time so keep an eye.

Crack Cloud would have been through a promoter friend earlier in the year, Pardans was through a buddy telling me about their debut last year (which is good but the new one is outrageous) and Daughters and LEG would have been through the album releases threads on the boards.


#71

How can you not connect with CSH? You blow my mind sometimes Severed. Good job you’re still in credit from getting Protomartyr right last year :wink:

And yes, definitely counts as a 2018 release.


#72

The Hatchie EP is brilliant. I finally saw her at Electrowerks a few weeks ago. Great live too.


#73

cool, will definitely get out to see them if they do. been playing that drum pattern from ‘jose tries to leave’ on my legs for the past two days or so.

pardans didn’t catch me so much first time around but i was doing admin at the same time tbf. not really admin music. will have to give them another shot in better conditions.

#75

Speaking of car seat headrest…

Glad that’s that cleared up then.


#76

Right. I’m repeating what I did last year: choosing a top 64 and then pairing them off randomly and making them slug it out head to head to get through to the next round. Eventually one winner will be victorious (hopefully before Christmas / the extinction of life on Earth). Stay tuned to find out who is going through from this lot! (I’ve actually done most of the head to heads on this round; it takes forever):
