I was made aware that this album would be up my street considering last year’s AOTY runner up Twin Fantasy shares some DNA with this and those folk weren’t wrong. A loud and proud release, Weatherday utilises this aesthetic to great effect, really getting you into the required headspace to take in all of these pent up emotions.

There’s so many highlights that come from this, the prime example being the 13 minute monolith My Sputnik Sweetheart. Unfortunately there’s an ... read more

In my attempt to avoid restating what’s already been said, I've failed. Mainly because starting off a review by saying “what can be said about Igor that everyone else hasn’t already” has me off to a rocky start.

Since the day I bought Revolutions: Live at Wembley, I’ve always had a certain fascination for artists recording their live performances and delivering it like the rest of their catalogue.

However, since I started doing these in 2015, every list of this nature has had one staple: Vampire Weekend.

So when it came to the news that we were finally getting a new album from the New York band, it’s safe to say that I was maybe too ... read more

No matter what way you feel about it, Forced Witness was one of the biggest surprises of 2017. While I hate to start such a review with this, Alex Cameron’s sophomore effort will be at the back of your mind when checking out Miami Memory. And who could blame you? Walking the thin line of sincerity and comedy like Jim Carrey’s transition into the noughties, Forced Witness was a joy to behold. An album that’s only gotten better since its release.

Question for my first community sourced AOTY list: What's a great album that you can't listen to anymore, and what's the reason?
