Top 10 albums of 2018 (in no particular order)


Johnny Marr - Call The Comet

With his latest album, Call The Comet, Johnny Marr throws out a sonic lifejacket for the disenfranchised (The) Smiths fans that jumped overboard after Morrissey’s most recent outbursts. Call The Comet is a modern classic, that echoes Marr’s greatest songwriting.


Bruce Springsteen - Springsteen on Broadway

Springsteen’s larger-than-life persona deconstructed. Brilliant record. That’s all.


Permanent Debt - Demo 2018

Demo 2018 hits harder than the lamp post that prematurely ended Paul Walker's career.


Wiegedood - De Doden Hebben Het Goed III

Wiegedood, Church of Ra’s most recent inductees, are a cascadic, post-black metal act that originally started out as a side project by members of Supergenius, Oathbreaker and Amen Ra. The third installment of De Doden Hebben Het Goed is a brutal, relentless and uncompromising audio carpet bombing of the inside of your skull.


Whispering Sons - Image

Whispering Sons’ debut album, Image, is darker than the inside of a miner’s lungs and more depressing than the Star Wars Prequels. A rare gem in a world of mediocrity.


Kurt Vile - Bottle It In

80 something minutes of pure and unadulterated head-bobbing bliss.


DMA’s - For Now

Sydney, so much to answer for …


Cat Power - Wanderer

Cat Power is and always will be the anchor that keeps me grounded.


Negative Self - Control The Fear

When it comes to music I care more for craftsmanship than originality. To some Control The Fear might be a carbon copy of every Suicidal Tendencies classic. To me it’s the purest form of craftsmanship.


S U R V I V E - RR7400: LA041717

S U R V I V E is an analog synth band that consists of Michael Stein, Kyle Dixon, Adam Jones and Mark Donica. These names might not mean much to you, but when I tell you that Stein and Dixon are the musical masterminds behind the Stranger Things soundtrack, you know what to expect. RR7400: LA041717 is a collection of dark, brooding instrumental synth tracks that serve as an homage to the legendary Peel Sessions.
