but yeah, I still like all the music I liked a few months ago.
My spreadsheet says yours was Chromatics.
Well, I say spreadsheet - it's actually a text file. Stuff culled from the voting thread, that i need to listen to at some point. Yours got added cos of the sleigh bells and death grips mentions. T'other lucky DiSers' top fives who ended up in the, um, hitlist were Icarus, vamos, KRaudive, and shimmetry. I hope you all feel suitably creeped out.
Although yesterday I took delivery of 'At the down-turned jagged rim of the sky' by Jessica Bailiff which could run it close.
not great with years of stuff so can't think further back than that, there's always gonna be better stuff you've missed though innit, bet if you give me a year something will bump it's way up there for 2012.
aidan moffat & bill wells
some other stuff
am & bw

I didn't know that Harvey Milk has been around for so long. I thought Life... The Best Game In Town was their debut!
(I don't listen to them)
You're right, however. They haven't made a record since '10.
oh no! list broken. i only got it in 2011.
Still is, but then again I only 'chose' it about 6 weeks ago. Ask me again in a year.
Mine was How To Dress Well, and it still is.
2011 mine was Peaking Lights 936, and it still is.
2010 mine was Emeralds - Does It Look Like I'm Here. and it still is.
2009 mine was Wild Beasts – Two Dancers. guess what?
The rest of the top 10s could do with some reshuffling and additions, but the number one I have got right by me and my internal logic, every time.
Nothing has raced past it in the chart in my mind.
Still suuuuuper in love with Fiona Apple, Purity Ring, and Passion Pit. I've stopped listening to Death Grips as much, though - I love those records, but I needed to give 'em a break.
I think it still is, but Hot Chip and Kendrick have edged much closer.
Ringo Deathstarr and Matthew Dear getting plenty of look ins.Now, Now and Liars need to leave for a bit. Getting into Tamaryn (particularly) and DIIV after the event.
Mine`s even gone in my top 10 all time favourite albums.
Still Ideas from the Pond by Petar Dundov. Was pretty difficult to choose between that, Swans, Shackleton and Damien Jurado but om balance it's definitely my favourite. The Steve Hauschildt record is probably the only thing I've heard since the end of last year that might break the top 10.
Going back through my picks, the last time this wasn't the case was 2006, when I picked 'Wolves' by My Latest Novel - but I much prefer 'Roots & Crowns' by Califone. Since then (and most of before) what I picked as my favourite at the time is still my favourite.
and i still quite love it
but since then Converge's All We Love has definitely grown up to be the one new release from last year that has really stuck with me.
and albums from previous years which may have been my album of the year then I now rarely if ever play while others which would have been much further down the list have passed comfortably into my regular listening rotation
But Scott Walker keeps nudging at it
Yep, it was and still is Astraea. Lonerism was also very good, but is being lapped in second place by Astraea.
Empiresk would be my track of 2012.
Django Django stands up.
so I'm not sure.
i don't think i've listened to it since 2012. i think deftones would be my current number 1.
