|Fuck Off - Good Throb|
Before I continue, just a reminder that today is your last chance to cast your vote in the official Festive Fifty at www.dandelionradio.com/festive50.htm. While you're considering that, here's the third instalment in my annual countdown of the year's best albums:
30. Crisis-BSP - J CNNR (Tres Catorce)
From Spain, an old favourite who's been away and come back with a massive electronic bang.
29. Lands - Piano Chat (Kythibong)
And from France, an album of understated magnificence courtesy of one of the most consistently brilliant labels of recent years.
28. Fuck Off - Good Throb (Self-released)
Anything but understated, it's so refreshing to hear albums like this that are, on the one hand, expletive-ridden slabs of guitar-hewn noise and, on the other, entirely original. Recorded on New Year's Day 2014 and still going strong.
27. No Fun (Not That One) - Mark Wynn (Self-released)
Hard to imagine this guy ever releasing a bad record. The run continues.
26. Utility Music - Gyratory System (Soft Bodies)
A track from this was the first thing I broadcast in 2014 and I still love it.
25-21 coming very soon.
