Best of 2018 #1

I was going to do my usual round-up of the year, but the malaise that bit me at the end of last year is getting worse and I really cannot be arsed to write anything. So instead, I'm just going to post three videos a day for a week that represent my albums of the year. No particular order (though for reference, Idles tops the list, closely followed by the Breeders) and no write ups. You'll notice the overwhelming prevalence of female and female-fronted acts, continuing the trend of recent years. Ladies, take a bow.

Today and tomorrow, I'm featuring the six new albums I purchased on limited edition coloured vinyl (as per the pic above). I bought a few nice reissues as well (Pixies, Super Furry Animals, etc) but obviously they don't count. Here's today's trio.

Idles - 'Joy As An Act Of Resistance'

The Breeders - 'All Nerve'

Courtney Barnett - 'Tell Me How You Really Feel'

  1. The Breeders album I just haven't quite taken has some great moments mind you, but doesn't quite hang together for me.

    I'm in the minority who doesn't 'get' Courtney Barnett, despite a number of attempts to do so.
