The end of the year is almost here and that means one thing, lists. A quick plug for one of my favorite polls (like it needs my approval) the ‘Nialler9 Irish Album & Songs Poll’ which returns for its fifth year.
It’s been an unbelievably brilliant year for Irish music with so many great and varied releases. Enough of my jabbering why not pop over to Nialler9 and vote for your favorite album and song of the year.
To in no way influence the voting here in no particular order are my ten Irish records of the year:
Villagers – Becoming A Jackal
The Rags – A National Light
The Mighty Stef – TMS & The Baptists
Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History
Not Squares! – Yeah Ok
Captain Moonlight – On The Lough (Agroculture Pt. 3)
Shit Robot – From The Cradle to the Rave
Fionn Regan – Shadow of an Empire
The Last Tycoons – The Last Tycoons
Nouveaunoise – Paraphrase Accolade
I hope to cobble together a list of the best albums of 2010 over the next few weeks so hold tight.
