It is the final countdown!
#5 The Dreaming Spires – Searching for the Supertruth
The Bennett brothers 2nd LP consolidated their position as our favourite purveyors of jangly guitars and catchy tunes.
#4 PINS – Wild Nights
Two sparkling performances from PINS at The Great Escape Festival grabbed our attention and LP ‘Wild Nights’ just confirmed what we were already thinking – this band kick ass.
#3 Torres – Sprinter
This list is chock full of artists making their second record. The same is true of Torres who follows up her outstanding debut with this exceptional piece of work. There is some heavy duty emotion poured into this record and its intensity ensures it is not always the easiest listen. However, Mackenzie Scott has an uncanny ability to channel all that emotion and create amazing songs – a brilliant record.
#2 Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit
This record has, quite rightly, pushed Courtney Barnett onto a whole new level of fame – constant touring, bigger venues, grammy nominations etc.. The guitars attack and the lyrics never fail to amuse and intrigue. A class act.
#1 Sleater Kinney – No Cities to Love
10 x brilliant tunes bursting at the seams with attitude. This is a group with something to say and a hard rocking band with which to say it! This record was an ever present for long parts of the year and still remains untouchable for us.
There you have it….the someofitistrue top #15 LP’s of 2015. What does it say about us? Well looking at the top #3 it probably says we still haven’t got over Nirvana! Happy New Year!
