**VOTE FOR TWO ALBUMS**
Vote for your favourite album and also runner up the album of the month. Make your selections clear please as it makes tallying up the scores easier. If you list a whole bunch of albums without making your selections clear I'll take the first two mentioned as 1st and 2nd place. Sorry to be a pedant.
Your album of the month will get two points and 2nd placed album one point. If you name only one album I'll give that two points.
I've noticed that on occasions there's a Facebook post of this thread. On a few occasions last year I think the Facebook votes changed the AOTM compared to votes here alone. If it's acceptable I'll only give Facebook people one vote which will only get one point. It's an attempt to weight the scoring heavier in the favour of DiS users that take the time and effort to vote and discuss the albums released rather than just naming/listing artists that I've seen on the FB post. Hopefully, the end result will much more reflect the opinions of actual DiS users.
Please forgive any shameless bumps of this thread during the week. I'll keep this thread open until Sunday 5th April and so you'll have nearly a week to listen to tomorrow's releases before choosing.
Vote now!! (Or later in the week) but make your 1st and 2nd choices clear please.
1. Radical Dads - Universal Coolers
2. Houndmouth - Light Neon Limelight
Radical Dads' album could be described as basically a 90s indie rock album by numbers. Very obvious influences from Sleater Kinney, Sonic Youth and Throwing Muses to name a few. I've enjoyed this album nonetheless hugely.
Houndmouth has been reviewed as universally average by all reviewers but I liked it a lot and is my second most played album of March after Radical Dads. It's fun Americana music. This is the stand out track:
