KEXP DJs' Top-10 Albums Lists

Posted by on Thu, Dec 29, 2011 at 12:25 PM

Because you’ve not yet had your fill of year-end lists this month, we present to you the top-10 albums lists of Seattle radio station KEXP’s programmers. If there’s one conclusion we can arrive at from this, it’s that KEXP's on-air talent (nine of 'em) loves Shabazz PalacesBlack Up. (By the way, this is the only album that my top 10 has in common with KEXP’s DJs.) Black Up—along with James Blake’s self-titled full-length—are the great uniters among the station’s jocks. Peruse the lists here.

Fucked Up had the best album of the year. A couple #1 votes for Destroyer's Kaputt, lots of votes for Wild Flag and M83. Loved Hayes Caryll, Kurt Vile, Elbow and Radiohead.

Does anyone have PJ Harvey? Can you have a QOTSA re-issue as your #1? I do love that album, but huh?
