Blah Blah Blah’s Top 20 Albums of 2011 Its that time of year again when we cleanse ourselves of all the music we have digested and compile it into a nicely cathartic list. During the cleansing process last year we commented that 2010 was unlikely to be considered a vintage year, despite this we still had no problem finding our 'Top 30 Albums'. Unfortunately 2011 in our opinion has prooved even less historically significant, and consequently we have trimmed our list from 30 LP's to just 20. The following list has been compiled and verified by the WeAreBlahBlahBlah writing team. Blah Blah Blah - Top 20 Albums of ... Read more / Preview track

Boddika & Joy O – Mercy (Swamp81) Another huge Boddika & Joy O collaboration, apparently this is due to be released fairly soon on Swamp81, although we've heard that before. Hopefully Mercy will not follow in the footsteps of 'Swims' which first appeared in March of this year and is still yet to be released. Anyway minor gripe aside this is another belter from the Joy Orbison & Boddika school of collaboration. Its a 4x4 monster that combines a techno style main riff with a little electro buzz and exquisite analog pads breaking through the main mix. Thanks to 'Only Vibes' for alerting us to this one.

Laura Jones – Love In Me (Eats Everything Re-Work) Laura Jones - 'Love In Me' was originally released in June of this year on 'Leftroom' and while it had obvious addictive qualities we couldn’t help but feel that the main riff and its surroundings were a touch too mainstream for our personal taste. Not that it was a bad track it just needed slightly tougher surroundings to give it more punch. It would appear that Leftroom also identified this, responding with a 3-track remix package (out now). Our pick is Eats Everything's rework that stays faithful to the tracks core whilst toughening up the edges. Maceo Plex's remix dispenses with the ... Read more / Preview track
