Albums of December

Every year. Every single year when we announce our Albums of the Year someone pipes up "what about the albums released in December".  So to try to re-dress the balance and let you catch up with what was happening while all the Christmas furore was going on here are what in our opinion were the best albums to come out in December. How many would have ended up in our Album of the Year list? None/one ish maybe.

Lomond Campbell
Black River Promise

Lomond Campbell put together his debut album Black River Promise in the manner of several lonely-eyed young men before him: by decamping to somewhere remote (in this case, an abandoned school in the Scottish Highlands) to be alone with his thoughts and his music. The pop-folk results are deep and remarkable, augmented with a ten-piece string ensemble. Clear LP on Triassic Tusk.

Rothko
Discover the Lost

While it’s unclear whether or not London-based four piece Rothko ever actually split up, it’s been a while since they actually recorded anything. Their last studio recordings ended up on 2010’s Sunset To Sunrise EP. Following an appearance at the Half Die festival in Rome they decided to record new material. Severed Tense EP appeared last year and now we have their first long-player in 9 years, Discover the Lost. Typically, the musical interplay between the band creates soundscapes that are haunting just as much as they are melodic.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.
