Here’s our top ten singles / eps of 2022 — without any claim that these are THE best releases from this year, because that would be nonsense, they’re the ones we liked most. And while the concept of an ep or even more so a 7″ single is pretty straightforward, the definition of what can count as a single has been blurred by the blessings of the digital age in music. So it seems reasonable to add that individual album songs that did not get a ‘proper’ single release but were merely set free into the streaming wilderness of YT or Spotify prior to the album release were still counted as singles here because they serve the same purpose as singles did in earlier years. In any case, if it’s a single to us, it should be a single to you. Read on
The June episode of our indiepop radio show is here, presenting some wonderful recent music by new artists and well-known bands. You can listen to the latest songs released by My Favorite, Martha, The Orchids, Electric Pets & more.

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

Enjoy listening to this month’s selection!
