Your list seems very mainstream. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing; it's merely an observation.

 

Anyway, I've got a lot of listening ahead of me if I want to have a midway list of top albums. :dead:

this reminds me that I still have to listen to Boards of Canada.

I think my top 10 now looks like:

 

The Mary Onettes - Hit The Waves

Esben and the Witch - Wash The Sins Not Only From Your Face

Still Corners - Strange Pleasures

The Boxer Rebellion - Promises

Austra - Olympia

Sigur Rós - Kveikur

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away

Folly and the Hunter - Tragic Care

My Bloody Valentine - M B V

Youth Lagoon - Wondrous Bughouse

 

I actually like this idea of composing one already half through the year. I am curious how it will have changed in the end of the year. To see if only new albums enter the top 10 or the ones that are in it now also change position compared to eachother. I wouldn't be surprised if the latter will be the case because in the beginning I thought MBV was amazing, but I also got bored with it fast, so it already went down in my list.

roughly in order

 

The National - "Trouble Will Find Me"

Jim James – “Regions of Light and Sound of God”

Local Natives – “Hummingbird”

Frightened Rabbit – “Pedestrian Verse”

Iron and Wine – “Ghost on Ghost”

Nightbeds – “Country Sleep”

Yo La Tengo – “Fade”

John Grant – “Pale Ghosts”

Phosphorescent – “Muchacho”

Devandra Banhart – “Mala”

 

but there's a lot of albums I haven't listened to enough yet, such as Vampire Weekend and Nick Cave.

^ The Local Natives record is beautiful. I haven't heard the Night Beds album yet, but I heard a song off it and REALLY liked it, so I'm going to try to listen to that at some point.

 

Anyway, I'm still going through albums and trying to come up with my list. If I pace myself enough, I should be able to have it by the end of the month.

It didn't make it in my top 10, but it's in my top 25 :D

 

Well ... better to dislike Jon Hopkins than put an album in your top 10 that isn't out yet, but you just know will be good :escaping2:
