In addition I'm going to have a competition. If you leave a comment in any of this weeks blogs telling me your favourite album of 2011 you will be automatically entered into a lucky dip the winner of which will receive their very own cack-handed black and white illustration of their favourite album by me.
First up is Kurt Vile's 'Smoke Ring for my Halo' lp which is probably my actual number one for the year. It was something of a slow-burner for me taking a long time to sink in but now it has I can't be without it. I also got to see Kurt Vile and the Violators in Oakland way back in July and he was the bee's cock.
