So... Thatcher's dead. I guess this isn't the best place for a resonable debate concerning her legacy and what not, but fuck it, let's try. I was born and live in a small town in northern England which was essentially completely decimated by her economic policy. She left pretty much the entire male side of my family unemployed, so naturally I'm quite happy. List is celebratory digs.
1The Knife
Shaking The Habitual

Probably my AOTY so far.
2James Blake

Listened once. I get the impression it's going to take a while to sink in.
Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will

The 'George Square Thatcher Death Party' is currently taking place in Glasgow. Really.
4Conquering Animal Sound
On Floating Bodies

Had this on repeat all week. Thoroughly recommended, especially if you're into Bjork.
5Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

^Ditto.^ Except you probably know this already, and it bears very little resemblance to Bjork.
6Bad Brains
Bad Brains

One of my favourite classic hardcore records.
7King Creosote And Jon Hopkins
Diamond Mine

Seeing King Creosote on Thursday at my favourite venue. Very much looking forward to it.
8Kurt Vile
Wakin On A Pretty Daze

Growing on me, slowly but surely.
9Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Fell asleep to this the other day. Bliss.
10 Arab Strap
Monday at the Hug & Pint

Because a list of mine would be incomplete without some Arab Strap.
