Minor Victories (Slowdive, Mogwai, Editors) tell us their Top 10 LPs of 2016

minor victories

Minor Victories, which features Rachel Goswell from Slowdive, Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, and Justin Lockey of Editors (and his brother James), released their debut album over the summer — the kind of soaring, textural (electronic-tinged) rock you might expect from such a collaboration. If you haven’t checked it out yet, stream it below.

We’re hoping Minor Victories will be able to make it to North America in 2017 — visa issues had them postpone this year’s tour — but in the meantime, they are one of the many artists who sent us Top 10 LP lists this year. All four members contributed picks, and Stuart Braithwaite and James Lockey also gave us their thoughts on them as well. Check out that list below.

MINOR VICTORIES’ TOP 10 LPs OF 2016

Rachel Goswell
. Nick Cave – Skeleton Tree
. Iggy Pop – Post Punk Depression

Justin Lockey
. Lanterns On The Lake – Live With The Royal Northern Symphonia
. Agnes Obel – Citizen Of Glass
. Emma Pollock – In Search Of Harperfield

James Lockey
. The Wedding Present – Going Going…
For me it feels like a return to form for David Gedge and the Wedding Present. Blistering guitar tracks and a video movie film for each track! Can’t wait to hear the George Best album they recorded with Albini.

. Thee Oh Sees – A Weird Exits
Late to the party with Thee Oh Sees, caught a bit of them at a festival over the summer and fookin’ awesome!

Stuart Braithwaite
. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani – Sunergy
Absolutely wonderful ambient synth record.This could be 10 times as long and it still wouldn’t be long enough!

. Papa M – Highway Songs
Amazing comeback record from one of my favourite ever musicians and people. Brilliantly diverse. Features awesome shredding!

. PJ Harvey – Hope 6 Demolition Project
The record I’ve probably listened to more than anything else. Incredibly purposeful and passionate.
