gets my vote
but it counts as this year if you're from mojo (re: that 6music thing i did yesterday)
I liked his cover of 'Let's Dance' though.
always reminds me of Ed Harcourt (which is an excellent thing)
I'd Say Ed HArcourt's "A beautiful Lie" is one of the most underrated albums of last year
But gets quite dull, quite quickly, especially with the wannabe Nick Drake tracks.
Eyes don't have skin.
Miracle Fortress - Five Roses
The Berg Sans Nipple's "Along The Quai" - nobody seems to know about this and it's really great... it hasn't been released in Europe yet though, so I guess that's a decent reason.
Saw them supporting Do Make Say Think earlier this year. You could stream the album from the Saddle Creek site, don't know if you still can.
It's far too 'polite' for my liking. Bit too MOR.
is far better. and equally as overlooked, at least in the UK.
It didnt even get a review on here :(
in my opinion
no-one seems to be talking about it at all but i love it. maybe my album of the year.
Real Life would be mine (I bought it last month). But it came out last year. So I'll go with Feist.
I tried to buy a JAPW t-shirt, but they didn't have any large ones. Dang.
and it hasn't even had a UK release yet. Jim Fairchild, the guitarist from Grandaddy, has released an album called 'Ten Readings Of A Warning' under the pseudonym of All Smiles. It's brilliant, catchy, and criminally overlooked.
But the Daniel Johnston cover is so fun.
And it has a fair bit of acclaim.
Overlooked albums of the year:
David Thomas Broughton - It's In There Somewhere
The Field - From Here We Go Sublime (althoughg critically that's done very well)
A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Scribble Mural Comic Journal
The Veils - Nux Vomica (US release)
Rhys Chatham - A Crimson Grail
album is awesome!! Thanks 'thewarn' for that!!
never heard of them until last week and now i can't stop!! reminds me of ambient works 85-92 era aphex twin in places, just without the glitches
