Who do you think you are? The forum dragnet or something?


#131

I’ll just wang 'em out quickly as thinking about it will only lead to agony:

  1. Krokofant - Krokofant III
  2. Ex-Eye - Ex-Eye
  3. Cloud Nothings - Life Without Sound
  4. Billy Woods - Known Unknowns
  5. Norman Westberg - Jasper Sits Out

(Had a quick search through the thread and I only picked two that anyone else had picked, although I have no idea if that’s true of most of us.)


#132
  1. The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding
  2. Run The Jewels - RTJ3
  3. Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory
  4. Sylvan Esso - What Now
  5. Sampha - Process

#133
  1. Julie Byrne – Not Even Happiness
  2. Everything Everything – Fever Dream
  3. Jane Weaver – Modern Kosmology
  4. Future Islands – The Far Field
  5. John Murry – A Short History of Decay

Places 1-3 were pretty easy and set in stone. 4 & 5 were tough calls from a cast of around 10 very worthy candidates. Incredibly strong year.

I’ve only heard of one of your picks (Cloud Nothings) and haven’t listened to that!

i think the diversity of the yearly favourites of DiS writers, contributors & forum members is pretty amazing tbh.
