Hmmm... not feeling like a vintage year so far.
My top five of this year's releases so far are:
- Wussy Attica!
- The Hold Steady Teeth Dreams
- Two Wings A Wake
- Steve Gunn & Mike Cooper Cantos De Lisboa
- Beck Morning Phase
All splendid and well worth listening to, but I'd have trouble coming with another five at this point. I think Neil Young's A Letter Home will be up there with them, but I haven't yet got my hands on a vinyl copy.
So far as gigs have gone, The Hold Steady are on top, with Powder Blue and Michael Chapman in joint second...but, again I just haven't been to as many as I would usually have at the 6 month point.
