What’s The Best Album This Year

Sun June innit

What I will say, is, as an older person that is perhaps too comfortable listening to my older records, that this year I am finding loads of great new music.

Maybe it’s the hopefully post lockdown and sense of something new, I’m not sure… but it’s shaping uo to be a halcyon year for music. Good material from many genres is dropping like crazy now.

It’s a tough call between, Mogwai, Dvne or Genghis Tron.

Favourites so far;

DVNE - Etemen Ænka
Hænesy - Garabontzia
Wolvennest - Temple
Mare Cognitum - Solar Paroxysm

Genghis Tron or Mogwai for me so far. The Armed is creeping up there too.

Yes and no – they’ve got a new vocalist and aren’t as gnarly as before, but I really like it. It’s called Dream Weapon.

Shame — Drunk Tank Pink

There is a reasonable chance the new DARKSIDE album will be wonderful too.
