Avalanche Top 20 Albums 2011

Here is the predicted chart placings. They will of course be adjusted  later allowing for December’s sales but I doubt they will change much.

1.  Star Wheel Press – Life Cycle Of A Falling Bird

2.  Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat – Everything’s Getting Older

3.  King Creosote and Jon Hopkins – Diamond Mine

4.  PJ Harvey – Let England Shake

5.  Bon Iver – Bon Iver

6.  Bwani Junction – Fully Cocked

7.  Mogwai – Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will

8.  Conquering Animal Sound – Kammerspiel

9.  Explosions In The Sky – Take Care Take Care Take Care

10. Edinburgh School for the Deaf – New Youth Bible

11. Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

12. Second Hand Marching Band – Compendium

13. Tom Waits – Bad As Me

14. Beirut – The Rip Tide 

15. Found – Factorycraft

16. We Were Promised Jetpacks – In The Pit Of The Stomach

17. The Moth & The Mirror – Honestly, This World 

18. David Thomas Broughton – Outbreeding

19. Farewell Poetry – Hoping For The Invisible To Ignite 

20. The Son(s) – The Son(s)

Worryingly all the big albums came out in the first 6 moths of the year and only Bwani Junction helped by their album launch in-store have made the top 10 from the second half of the year. I’ll comment more later but certainly Rob St John would have possibly featured had his album been available on CD as well as vinyl.
