And so it com(eth) to pass(eth) that I will blog(eth) about my top tunes(eth) of the year(eth)…. and you won’t give a shit..(eth) So here they izz, in no particular order:
Labrinth - Earthquake
I met Labrinth this year and he was one of the nicest celeb types i’ve ever ever worked with. Plus this tune more infectious than your crabs.
SBTRKT - Pharoahs
I accidentally saw SBTRKT live 3 times this year. Each time this tune blew me sideways. It’s a beaut.
Azelia Banks - 212
My friend who produces a radio show nearly played the unedited version of this on her show. Good job she didn’t because Azelia has a potty mouth….but she does make exceedingly good tunes.
Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle
Straddling the line between cool indie and chart contenders, this group are getting stronger and stronger.
Rizzle Kicks - Down with the trumpets
Stupidly cool, bloody hot, annoyingly talented and only 19. Bastards.
Coldplay - Charlie Brown
It might not be cool to like Coldplay but I couldn’t give two shits. The best live band in the world. This song is epic.
Little Boots - Shake
I know, Little Boots right? This dropped onto the interwebs a couple of months back and has been pleasantly invading my earholes ever since. Well done The Boots.
Friendly Fires - Blue Cassette
Dancing to this whilst fucked in a field with my best mates at Glastonbury this year is a memory that will live with me forever. One day i’ll dance as well as Ed from the group. One day.
Britney Spears - Till The World Ends
Yes, she had nothing to do with this album and yes it was fucking awesome. This is an awesome nugget of crispy pop perfection.
Kanye West - All Of The Lights
Kanye once again ignoring what’s cool and producing something interesting, original, exciting and incredibly self indulgent.
Joe Goddard - Gabriel
CHRIST! I very nearly forgot about this nugget. Joe Goddard has done some great stuff this year and this is a decadent slab of amazingness.
