Ahead of revealing our top twenty EPs of the year, we’re pleased to present the big one: our Top 30 Irish Albums of the Year. Was it a tricky to compile? Very. It’s never easy but it’s always a pleasure. We say it every year but it’s undeniable: the last twelve months have been nothing short of revelatory, and we fully believe the following list of LPs shine a beaming floodlight on what the island of Ireland has to offer, from transcendent traditional revivalism and world-beating hip-hop to obliterating noise and Motorik-driven kosmische worship.
