2018 – The best of janglepop albums

As we enter the second month of 2019, I am perhaps a bit late to the best of party and feel a return of those awkward student moments, where oversleep, general laziness and a terrible memory, often led me to pitch up at party central to be met by the confused glances of a couple of nerdy kids cleaning up vomit.

I would love to spin it that it was because 2018 was such a great year for jangle-pop that it took me so long to decide…however my interminable lack of shame has always led to an honesty that reveals when I just could not be arsed!

Oh well, done now… and this lot is brilliant ! Thanks to all the bands and labels for some brilliant music!
