Tracks of My Year




I've thought long and hard about this and whether to post on not. I know that best of lists are totally subjective and that nobody will be in the slightest bit interested in what I deemed to be good this year but what the hell. I like lists even if it is just to shake my head and tut tut at in a very condescending manner.

Anyway, I make a best of compilation up for my mate and his 2 brothers every year and thought that I would share the results with anybody who can be arsed to read. The number of tracks is down to how many I can fit on 2 cds.
 
1 - Meursault - Red Candle Bulb
2 - La Roux - In For The Kill (Skream's Let's Get Ravey Mix)
3 - The Third Degree - Mercy
4 - Withered Hand - Oldsmobile Car
5 - Chew Lips - Solo
6 - Jamie T - Chaka Demus
7 - Withered Hand - I Am Nothing
8 - The Jezabels - Disco Biscuit Love
9 - Joy Orbison - Hyph Mngo
10 - The Joy Formidible - While The Flies
11 - Unknown - Unknown (Wax 20002 side two)
12 - The Big Pink - Velvet
13 - Burial & Four Tet - Moth
14 - Andrew Weatherall - Brother Johnston's Travelling Disco
15 - Real Estate - Fake Blues
16 - The Fall - Slippy Floor (mark mix)
17 - The Wave Pictures - If You Leave It Alone
18 - God Help The Girl - Come Monday Night
19 - Dark Star - Aidt's Girl's A Computer
20 - Slow Club - Trophy Room
21 - Myron and E with the Soul Investigators - Cold Game
22 - Fuck Buttons - Olympians
23 - Speech Debelle - Spinnin'
24 - Raveonettes - Last Dance
25 - Gui Borrato -Take My Breath Away
26 - Clubroot - Sempiternal

I know tracks 1 and 4 are the same song but they are both brilliant and technically the Jezabels came out at the end of 2008. But it's my list my rules, you are all free to make up your own.
