10 Best Manchester Albums Of The 2010s

The latest and greatest from one of Britain's biggest musical cities.


Manchester is a city in the North West of England, and one of the largest in the UK. Although you probably know it better though for over 50 years of incredible music.

Just some of the acts you might of heard of include The Chemical Brothers, The Fall, Happy Mondays, The Hollies, John Cooper Clarke, Joy Division, New Order, Oasis, The Smiths, and The Stone Roses.

Problem is, all of these acts originated from the 20th Century.

In the 2000s, acts such as The Courteeners and Doves have found success in the UK, but failed to reach a wider audience like some of the aforementioned groups. This downward trend has continued into the 2010s, but that doesn't mean the quality of the music has depreciated.

You might have missed some of the best new acts out of Manchester from the last ten years, or some new material by some old favourites.

This list is by no means definitive, and you can see it more of a discovery guide. A one per artist rule is in place, and the first track of each album is embedded in each entry so you can listen along.
