LPs 2014 – Part 1 (Nos 11-30 and Honourable Mentions)


And now the start of the MPT countdown. Looking down the list there are some great records in here and, as last year, there’s a good few here which would have made the Top 10 in previous years.

So without any further ado here’s albums 11-30:

27. Raveonettes – Pe’ahi

28. PAWS – Youth Culture Forever

29. Wonder Villains – Rocky

30. Roy Moller – One Domino [Review]

The top 10 tomorrow.

Last year I did try and rank my top 50. But, to be honest, below around number 30 it was a bit of an artificial exercise so this year I’ve simply listed the Honourable Mentions alphabetically. Whilst there are undoubtedly a handful of records in here that disappointed I’m sure that for others only a lack of familiarity stopped these being ranked higher. Although clearly they couldn’t ALL have been in the top 50.

The Flaming Lips – 7 Skies H3

Hookworms – The Hum

The Hold Steady – Teeth Dreams

Jackson Hall – Lost Love Songs Two

Meursault – The Organ Grinder’s Monkey

    Is the Split Single album good? All I’ve heard is the TV on the Radio cover they did for AV Club but was impressed with that.
