I don’t need to tell you guys how tough it is trying to put together a Top 10 Albums list when there is always so much incredible music being released each year. At the end of the day though, tough decisions do need to be made, and for me it all comes down to which EPs or albums have really resonated with me in some way, and subsequently listened to the most.
My Top 10 is made up of some long-time favourites like Sufjan Stevens, Chad Valley, BATHS, RATATAT, TELEPATHE, Kisses and Björk, as well as some newcomers to the scene like Yucatan out of Wales, Introverted Dancefloor from New Zealand and CLN from right here in Australia (who I happen to manage by the way).
