10. Remember Remember – The Quickening
A new name to me and another excellent Scottish album in a good year for Scottish albums.
9. Belong – Common Era
Darkly addictive, shoegazing stuff.
8. Anna Calvi
Believe the hype.
7. Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat – Everything’s Getting Older
Marvellously miserable musings.
6. Ryan Adams – Ashes & Fire
That old cliché – the return to form.
Could have been a real failure but wasn’t.
4. Gillian Welch – The
Her albums don’t come around too often but they are worth waiting for.
3. Mogwai – Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will
2. Bill Callahan – Apocalypse
Someone has to chronicle the apocalypse.
1. Low – C’mon
Terrible title, but a fine album.
