Mid Year Top 10

So, the four of us who ‘do’ Louder Than War put our collective top 10 favourite “albums of the year so far” together for a definitive “Louder Than War” top 50 albums of the first half of 2012. Actually it’s kind of more John’s list - as you can tell by the fact that neither of my 2 favourite albums of the year made it into the top 50! I shall be pushing doubly hard to get both Perfume Genius & the Hype Williams twosome to get into the end of year lists for sure although I guess their chances are both pretty slim.
Anyway here’s my top 10 (11 actually - boosted by Big Joan just for this list, I knew it wouldn’t make the cut for LTW so didn’t choose it there). Video’s for the top three then a bunch of other great albums I could have also picked.
1. Perfume Genius - Put Yr Back N 2 It

2. Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland - Black Is Beautiful

3. DeathGrips - The Money Store

4. Traxman - Da Mind Of Traxman
5. Vibronics – The French Connection 
6. Lower Dens - Nooptropics
7. Actress - RIP
8. Grimes - Visions
9. Yva Las Vegass - ‘I Was Born In a Place of Sunshine and the Smell of Ripe Mangoes’ 
10. OFF! - OFF!
11. Big Joan - The Long Slow Death Of Big Joan

Anyone else coming to Simple Things on Sunday? If so you can go to this page on Last.fm &amp; it&#8217;ll tell you how many of the 43 bands you&#8217;ve scribbled. Can anyone beat my 37 / 43? Fair play to ya if so. Dunno really who I&#8217;m mostly looking forward to. Factory Floor mebe after missing their show @ Arnolfini last year. Or Bo Ningen. Grimes. 
Or course headlining the thing&#8217;s Squarepusher. So here&#8217;s a video off his soon to be released next album.
