Are we going to have the same rules as last year, assigning points and stuff, or is this just the preliminary discussion?

I have a lot of new music to listen to before I can be fully confident in it, but I definitely have a list of 25 awesome albums ready to go. It's been a great year for music.

I'd say discussion for now. I'm not ready to do a formal list yet. Will hit back later today with the contenders.

I like it a lot more than their last album. There are two or three songs I'm listening to quite regularly at the moment.

My first 2012 track on that list is at n°14 I barely listen to separate songs though, only if I really like them so that's why I listen to older songs more often.

How many plays for the top five? I'd like an idea of how often you played these songs, scumbo.

Probably not super high in the grand scheme of things. Everything was quite close after the first 4.


1. The Shins – Simple Song - 30
2. Shearwater – Animal Life - 26
3. Shearwater – Breaking The Yearlings - 24
4. Why? – Strawberries - 21
5. Bat for Lashes – Laura - 18

That's about the same as my top tracks.

I can get behind most of those songs.

I like Animal Life far more than Breaking the Yearlings, but since they come in that order in the album, I can't stop listening after Animal Life. Plus, the guitar at the opening of Breaking the Yearlings is awesome.

There are a lot of 1, 2 combo songs I have to listen to together like that. Sometimes they aren't even placed by each other on albums, I just find myself wanting to hear them together for some reason.

Shearwater will be high on my list. Out of 166 albums and EPs, Animal Joy is #9 right now. I went a while without hearing it, but I listened to it recently before seeing them and remembered how great it is. Great guitars on this album.
