Top 50 LPs of 2015

Odd Box has released 5 LPs this year. Asking me to rank those is an impossible task. But each of these 5 albums deserve to be mentioned in any self respecting blog post considering their favourite releases of 2015:

Frozy – Lesser Pop
The Manhattan Love Suicides – More Heat! More Panic!
The Ethical Debating Society – New Sense
Two White Cranes – Radisson Blue
Nervous Twitch – Get Back In Line

I shan’t include them in the run down below. But rest assured these are great albums and deserve to be heard by all.

Here are my ‘other’ favourite albums of the year.
