End(ish) Of Year Polls

Rather excitingly i've been asked to participate in two interblog end of the year polls, and I thought i'd post my contributions for your viewing pleasure. First of all was one from the Italian blog Indie For Dummies, and was for the years top 10 records, plus 5 runners up. Here are mine:

1. Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
2. Antony & The Johnsons - I Am A Bird Now
3. Eels - Blinking Lights & Other Revelations
4. Sleater Kinney - The Woods
5. Patrick Wolf - Wind In The Wires
6. Wolf Parade - Apologies To The Queen Mary
7. Animal Collective - Feels
8. Mew - ...And The Glass Handed Kites
9. Low - The Great Destroyer
10. Martha Wainwright - Martha Wainwright

Runners up:

The Fall - Heads Roll
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Kate Bush - Aerial
Vashti Bunyan - Lookaftering
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene

Next is one from the English blog Take Your Medicine, and is a survey of British blogs to find a top 10 UK artists list for the year. Mine were:

1. Patrick Wolf
2. Radiohead
3. Belle & Sebastian
4. Vashti Bunyan
5. Arab Strap
6. The Fall
7. Super Furry Animals
8. David Bowie
9. Bloc Party
10. Kate Bush

As I was saying to TYR's author, think that list goes to show the lack of truly great new British talent in the last year (especially if you consider the albums in my top 10 above). Anyway i'll post links to the survey results when they come.
