Nice to see Boy Azooga and Blossoms pop up here, neither are albums I've heard in full but I've heard enough songs from both to be able to have a say! Jerry still remains a bop music.gif

Thanks PeteFromLeeds! Glad you like these two.
Jerry is a nice heart-felt song.

The Top 10 of the albums will start tomorrow. While you're waiting, I have given some clues relating to each one.


10. One of his albums starts with this spoken intro "Love is patient, love is kind".
9. A raw slice of American indie.
8. Her first two albums have both been previously nominated for the Mercury Prize.
7. The answer lies somewhere within this line.
6. Dreamy indie pop from London.
5. It's an album that focuses on Brexit, and has a man who was in two well-known musical groups.
4. Contains one of my favourite album openers of the year, and has an aggressive punk sound.
3. A melancholy album dealing with the pains of unhealthy relationships.
2. I am absolutely amazed by the marvellous poetry of this band's material.
1. One word. Jazz.

Excellent to see Jon Hopkins and Young Fathers in your Top 20. Not too sure on your Top 10 from the clues, though I think that number 1 may be Kamasi Washington?

Thanks Doctor Blind, it's nice to see another user who likes these two.
Keep your eyes peeled for my Top 10 picks.

Thanks serge.
I actually own the first two on CD.
I also went to see Arctics live and they were great, and I went to a Boarding House Reach listening party where I got to hear the album before its release.

10. John Grant - Love Is Magic

The album I was referring to in the clue was Grant's 2015 album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, which previously made it to my 2015 EOY.
Grant's latest album Love Is Magic explores the pains of intimacy, as well as the bleak reality of our world, complete with some of the depressive downbeat characteristics found on Grantís previous album Grey Tickles Black Pressure, such as enchanting synths and haunting harmonies. Not all of it is doom and gloom! Album opener Metamorphosis has Grant putting on a fun, over-the-top voice while blurting out peculiar images and Tempest takes a look at nostalgia with some mentions of a few Atari games from the 80ís.

9. Parquet Courts - Wide Awaaaaake!

Really digging this indie punk sound, reminds me of Kaiser Chiefs mixed with The Strokes.
The album feels more punky in contrast to the laidback Human Performance, and there’s some great jabs at society as found in tracks like Violence.

8. Anna Calvi - Hunter

A marvellous exploration of gender and identity, with a 90’s rock style reminiscent of PJ Harvey’s early material.
Almost every single track is amazing, with a few of my favourites being Indies or Paradise and Don't Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy.
Here's to hoping this album continues Calvi's streak of Mercury noms.

7. Beach House - 7

An album called 7 is at number 7. Seven-ception!
Anyway, Beach House's latest album 7 takes their usual shoegaze sound and adds some psychedelic elements to it.
While most of the lyrics involve issues caused during serious relationships, there’s also some nice, breath-taking imagery presented in songs like Dark Spring and Lose Your Smile, complete with outstanding production.
