And the best albums of May 2011 are…

Beastie Boys Make Some Noise

…on the BBC Music Blog RIGHT HERE.

If the above image doesn’t give away one of my ten picks from the month that was, clearly you’re not someone who could be said to “enjoy music”. Fair enough. I don’t enjoy aubergines. But I don’t read blogs about them – so why are you here?

On a related BBC Music Blog note, I wrote a fairly lengthy piece on the various contenders for this year’s Mercury Prize last month – the shortlist of 12 is issued next month. Read about the latest releases from the likes of Katy B, Wild Beasts (they might just be in that there best of May round-up, too), Ghostpoet, PJ Harvey, Mount Kimbie and Zomby BY CLICKING THESE WORDS.

I’m not sure this new Arctic Monkeys album is making either my best of June or the Mercury shortlist. It’s a bit… tired.
