As you may have seen on every other blog on the Irish internet, AU magazine are compiling a reader-voted list of the best albums to emerge from the smaller island of the Northeastern Atlantic Archipelago in the past ten years. Voting closes on Monday, but if you haven’t voted, you should.
- AU stands from Alternative Ulster, which is a Belfast publication. Stop the list being Nordy-skewed by voting for your favourite artistes.
- Every time you vote for someone other than Glen Hansard or Damien Rice, the country edges karmically closer to the end of the recession.
- Represent the people who made the best albums but won’t be recognised as much as they should!
Those Geese Were Stupefied particularly recommends voting for So Cow’s I’m Siding With My Captors and These Truly Are End Times, Mumblin’ Deaf Ro’s Herring and the Brine, Patrick Kelleher’s You Look Cold and, despite its still stickly Ashlee Simpson production values, Fight Like Apes and the Mystery of the Golden Medallion.
