The 2021 Top Ten Show! For this year’s final episode of our little indiepop radio show, we do things a little bit differently and play a song each from our top ten albums plus our top ten singles from 2021, counting them down in pairs. Enjoy listening to the music that we’ve enjoyed listening to the most this year – thanks for tuning in and let’s do it again in 2022!
When we announced our top ten records last year, we were optimistic enough to claim that things would be fine and 2021 would be our year. Well, how wrong can you be. At the end of a year that has been every bit as difficult as the previous one, we still find ourselves in the same place, with the pandemic still raging and no prospect of it ending any time soon. So we’ll refrain from any further prophecies for now but are all the more grateful for the amazing spirit of resilience among labels, bands and artists and for excellent new music still being released every week. Here’s a list of the top ten singles / EPs from 2021 that we liked best. Read on
Corresponding to the top ten singles / eps from 2021 that we liked best (cf. post above), there is of course also a list of the top ten albums we felt the need to come back to most often to find some consolation going through this hellhole of a year. Here it is in full: these are the ten LPs that served that purpose best for us throughout the past twelve months. A sincere Thank You! to all artists, labels, and anyone else involved in their making! Read on
As we come closer to the year’s end, we can only hope you haven’t finalised your eoy-lists yet because chances are there’s some mighty contenders on this show – brilliant new music from Jetstream Pony, Seablite, Sun June and more, plus grateful bows to Slumberland Records and Indietracks. Enjoy listening to this month’s selection!
Shorter autumn days are here and as the year is drawing towards its end, we have some musical distraction for long nights in to offer: our latest selection of 12 new tracks from the world of indiepop is here. This month’s episode features songs from Peach Pit, Cindy, Peaness, Lunar Vacation, and more, with two German tracks from way back thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
Lots of exciting new music entered our world in September and here’s our latest indiepop radio show offering 12 particularly shiny of those songs, coming from the likes of Night Shop, Secret Shine, Life Model, and more. In our closing track from way back we bid farewell to Pat Fish of The Jazz Butcher. R.I.P.
Welcome to our latest offering of new indiepop releases of the last six weeks we particularly enjoyed listening to. Framed by older favourites coming from Rocketship and Saint Etienne, our usual selection of twelve fresh pearls features The Lodger, The Arctic Flow, Ducks Ltd., and more. Enjoy!
After a bit of a summer break we’re back with a new, shiny and warm episode of the latest sunny tracks from the world of indiepop. New music comes from the likes of Swansea Sound, Fortitude Valley and Snow Coats, while this month’s tracks from way back are The Understudies and The Sundays. Enjoy!
Here’s the June episode of our monthly roundup of thoroughly enjoyable indiepop listening pleasures from the last few weeks. Thirteen enjoyable new tunes from the likes of The Catenary Wires, Acid House Kings, The Boy Least Likely To, and more. Tracks from way back this month come from The Man From Delmonte and The Gravy Train. Enjoy!
When it’s not the pandemic anymore that’s keeping you at home at all times, it’s the godawful weather. We have a little distraction for you though, in the form of the new episode of our indiepop radio show — an hour will fly by as you listen to twelve shiny new tracks from Mattiel, Poster Paints, The Goon Sax & more. Help yourself!
