So every year, being the super cool guy I am, I (Sam) compile a list of my favourite albums of the year and feel compelled to tell the world about it. I'm sure you're not necessarily interested but I thought i'd stick it here just so I have a record when I come to look back on this list in years to come.
So here we go with the first part of my albums of the year from numbers 20 to 11.
A short disclaimer to begin these are purely the opinions of me they do not reflect the opinions of the rest of the band and are based entirely on albums I have heard, I can't possibly comment on any other records which I have not heard (though I imagine Wilco, Slow Club and Los Campesinos are all pretty good)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Hysterical
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
The Vaccines- What Did You Expect From The Vaccines
Radiohead - The King Of Limbs
My Morning Jacket - Circuital
Ryan Adams - Ashes & Fire
Wye Oak - Civilian
The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar
Bon Iver - Bon Iver
Elbow - Build A Rocket Boys!
In traditional style i'll continue this run down giving greater detail on the album as we go, leading up to a grand reveal of just what I believe to be the best record of the year...exciting eh?
