It’s been an epic musical year.
The best for longer than I can remember.
We’ve had great dance (Crystal Castles, Hot Chip)
We’ve had great folk (Villagers, Midlake, Anais Mitchell)
Great indie (Arcade Fire, Sleigh Bells, I am Kloot)
Great pop (Cee Lo Green, Glee, Paolo Nutini – well that’s a hangover from 2009 that’s just grown and grown on me, Rumer and Fyfe Dangerfield)
Great rock (Arcade Fire, Robert Plant)
Great balladry (Corrine Bailey Rae, Rumer, Tracey Thorn, Gil Scott Heron, I am Kloot again, John Grant)
And then there’s been a few oldies that have crept through into my particular headspace (Dead Kennedies, E.M.A.K)
Here is the full top 20 listing…
I am producing my usual year end CD (since 2004)
I think this is the best yet. Certainly the greatest strength in depth.
