Not even half way through the year, and I already know what my top 6 albums of the year are going to be.
#1 will be Jungle's debut, without a doubt. I still can't get over how fucking awesome they are.
#2-3 will be a toss-up between DZ Deathrays and We Were Evergreen's debut, to be decided once DZ actually release their album...
#4 will be Bombay Bicycle Club's So Long, See You Tomorrow.
#5-6 will be a toss-up between The Trouble with Templeton and Young Summer, to be decided once Young Summer actually release their album...
Still a possibility for Royal Blood to throw a spanner in the works, but I think they'll probably have to settle for #7.
Now that all of these albums have been released, this is how my Top 6 list is looking:
#1 - Jungle - Jungle (of course)
#2 - We Were Evergreen - Towards
#3 - Young Summer - Siren
#4 - DZ Deathrays - Black Rat
#5 - Bombay Bicycle Club - So Long, See You Tomorrow
#6 - The Trouble with Templeton - Rookie
Not sure Royal Blood will even make #7 - I love the singles they released previously but the rest of the album didn't excite me that much. Looking forward to seeing where Alt-J fit in when their new album is released next week.
EDIT: Just saw that This Is All Yours
has already been released on Spotify! Omg.
