Aaaaaaaaaaand your album of the year is…………………………………..
Bum, forgot oOoOO – Without Your Love and No Ceremony – No Ceremony. And Eat Lights Become Lights – Modular Living.
Dammit, I’ll never choose a fave album. And nor do I wish to. Though I’m deffo now going to have to check out a load of those listed up there^^^^Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Biffy Clyro, Opposites. OK, it gets enormous black marks for being a double album that could fit onto a single CD, and some of the tracks are not that great but when it’s good, ahhhh… Scintilating and inspirational. It’s quite hard to be a Biffy fan sometimes but not this time.
(also I love the way Stingin Belle was constructed from the ground up as an efficient machine to make live audiences completely lose their shit. Not actually a great song on the record but live it is like kool aid. Bagpipes? **** it, why not.)
Chvrches for an honourable mention, and Sigur Ros.Posted 4 years agobuck53Subscriber
Got back into new music this year, but seemed to go a bit poppy at the same time, so mine would be from:
Arctic Monkeys – AM
Disclosure – Settle
Buck 65 – Sass (all 4 minutes and 27 seconds of it)
There’s a lot I need to catch up on, so could change in the next month.Posted 4 years agogrievoustimMember
I know some felt it could never live up to the hype – but I think I’ve listened to Random Access Memories by Daft Punk more than any other new album this year. I think it’s a stone cold classic
Also liking the new John Grant, Nick Cave, Arctic Monkeys, Parquet Courts, National , Hookworms, Mathew E White, Houndstooth and Bill Callahan
Edit – And Vampire WeekendPosted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
Another vote for Earth Rocker, bloody great album although not their best ever.
Thought I’d have loads to list on here but looking though my recent faves pretty much everything was 2012, turns out 2012 was a bloody good year.
Valkrija – Týr
You’re listening to the Hell – the Hell
are the only others that have really grabbed me, although that could change when my vinyl of the new Skeletonwitch lands as it’s supposed to be rather spiffing.Posted 4 years agoatlazMembersenor wrote:
Ashamed to say 2013 has been my poorest year for listening to new music.
I have the new White Denim & Boards of Canada on my christmas list.
The BoC album is good, but it’s not as good as some of their earlier stuff. Try the Hopkins album ourmaninthenorth and I rated, glitchy electronica at its bestPosted 4 years ago
