#224

Ladies, gentlemen (and Australians). I’m away over new year but will be looking to close this down and tally the results when I’m back - so lunchtime on the 2nd is the deadline to contribute. Keep them coming (if you haven’t already).

  2. Julie Byrne – Not Even Happiness

  2. Jens Lekman – Life Will See You Now
  3. Meursault – I Will Kill Again
  4. Sleep Party People – Lingering
  5. Sylvan Esso – What Now

Snuck Sylvan Esso in as number five, as they’re the only one of the albums I really like which might get anywhere in the roundup (with Jens trailing far behind). Could’ve quite happily done a top 30 or 40 I think.
