Here's my draft list of top albums of the year. It may well change, especially as there are still some big releases not out yet. What have I missed?
In no particular order:
Sigur Ros - "Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust"
Uplifting, beautiful, incomprehensible
Laura Marling - "Alas I cannot swim"
All the family love it
TV on the Radio - "Dear Science"
Strange mix of styles, but it works
Fleet Foxes - "Fleet Foxes"
Where did this music come from?
Robert Forster - "The Evangelist"
Because I love the Go-Betweens
Hercules and Love Affair - "Hercules and Love Affair"
Bizarre but addictive
Ambulance - "Accident and Insurgency"
MGMT - "Oracular Spectacular"
Old + new = fun
Bon Iver - "For Emma, Forever Ago"
Sublime melodies, pure accoustic sound
Any recommendations or things that I should have included?
