OK. So Rough Trade, who provided this list, are hardly fans of Top Of The Pops but even I am freaked out by the obscurity of this list.
Yes I’ve listened to the Josh T Pearson album and of course I have the PJ Harvey, Metronomy and Anna Calvi records which are all very good, but WTF?
Of the rest the only others I have even heard of are Beirut, Bon Iver, Lykke Li, Gillian Welch and ema.
I’m seriously worried about my slipping off the cutting edge.
Before you know it I’ll be putting Adele trascks on my best of the year (coming soon).
Oh shit. I have!
