Continuing the countdown...
35. Wait to Pleasure - No Joy (Mexican Summer)
Shoegaze-tinged indie pop with a timeless freshness.
34. You Owe Me Nothing But Love - Comanechi (Tigertrap)
By turns spiky and tuneful. The uncompromisingly brash 'Patsy' is one of the most astonishing tracks of the year.
33. Tomorrow's Harvest - Boards of Canada (Warp)
Cracking return to form - retains all the elements that made their earlier work such a delight, but endowed with the masterful touches of veterans.
32. White Light - 65daysofstatic (Century Media)
Another triumph of the tried and tested - sublimely atmospheric and powerful.
31. I Surrection - Talisman (Sugar Shack) - below
Reggae veterans still carrying an awesome punch.
