Guest post: Jack Murray’s Top 10 Albums of 2015

Professional fruit-down-a-hole chucker (self-proclaimed), Evil Haircut (aka ‘Pumple’) and soon to be possible drummer of Top Fun (Top Gun tribute band), Jack Murray returns to our screens (this website) with his top 10 albums of 2015. Are you ready to party with the best of them?

Brawlers – Romantic Errors Of Our Youth

An autobiographical streak runs through Brawlers’ sound – from the brisk story-telling of Annabel to the girl-chasing bounce of Two Minutes and the drunken bar room chant of the album’s title track, hearts are very much being held up to your face, with the bloody viscera dripping all down your front.

Brawlers – I Am A Worthless Piece Of Shit

It’s scary how some things enter your consciousness so quickly. After only 2 playthroughs, the superbly titled I Am A Worthless Piece Of Shit has set up a permanent shop inside my head and is proving difficult to budge. Not that you’d want to, because this is fucking brilliant; from the jerking pop-rock of Mothers and Fathers to the anthemic rant-a-thon of the EP title track, this is an absolute blast from start to finish.

Dinosaur Pile-Up – Nature Nurture

Dinosaur Pile-Up bury the notion of ‘difficult second album’ syndrome on Nature Nurture whilst attempting to french-kiss Weezer at the same time. Green Album-era fans apply within.
