The countdown begins. The viewer count was pretty high on this blog towards the end of the countdown last year, so let's see if my parade of fluctuating thrills can do some more of that again. Even better, I hope you might check some of these releases out if you've not done so already. As usual, no compilations allowed and no split releases either, which actually rules out some extremely fine stuff this year. My views will almost certainly change as I write, but here goes:
40. Funky Was The State Of Affairs - Fergus & Geromio (Hardly Art)
Wonky pop wonders with frequently inspirational twists.
39. Inzen - Wormkids. (Self-Released)
One of many wonderful things to come out of Hungary this year. Long may they continue. Download it for free here.
38. Wild - The Inner Banks (DAG!)
Surprisingly brilliant pop stylings that could easily have been shit but weren't.
Crunching electronic wizardry. Hopefully got a session coming up from them in my January Dandelion Radio show.
36. Indian Pussy – Harry Cloud (WhitewOrm)
Warped, tasteless and cruelly wonderful.
35-30 to come soon. While you're waiting, why not cast your vote in the 2012 Festive Fifty at http://www.dandelionradio.com/festive50.htm
