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
Welcome to a new year of our modest indiepop radio shows, introducing 12 new tracks. The first episode of 2021 features releases by Swansea Sound, fuvk, The Shop Window, & more, plus our usual opening and closing track from way back. 52 minutes of quality entertainment!
As another kind of sub-awesome year draws to its welcome end, once more, one of the very few things that kept us sane is the music we love. And because we also love lists and love them all the more when they are ranked instead of presenting an “all of these were equally great” levelling, here’s our very well-considered top ten singles and EPs of 2019. There’s a song sample for each record and the cover will link you to a place where you can buy it. Respect and gratitude to everyone who’s written, recorded, played on, produced, released or manufactured a record this year – you rule! Read on
