> So here we are. I’m not quite sure why I settled on 60 but it’s a nice number regardless, and one which holds the tracks which have most pleased my ears throughout the last 12 months.
I’m sure I’ve missed some obvious choices but it’s a nice representation of what has been a great year in music none the less, particularly on an Irish front.
Have a listen, find something you may like/have missed and make sure to post your own!
Here’s Part 1 with songs 60 – 41
60) Rubberbandits – Horse Outside
Sure, who else? Love ’em or hate ’em there’s no doubting that Horse Outside will be on the ‘Reeling in the years’ montage for 2010 in another decade or so…
54) Robyn – Don’t Fucking Tell Me What To Do
Scandanavian pop-let lets loose to wondrous effect.
42) Nouveounoise – Cinnte
A sumptious pebble-dashed array of colours and shapes, which build and latch onto your snyapses in the process.
41) Solar Bears – Primary Colours at the Back of My Mind
The sound of the cosmos and equally as life affirming. Beautiful and in no way immediately recognisable as ‘Irish’, Dublin/Wicklow’s Solar Bears are the perfect example of the depth and variety which Irish music has been offering lately.
The full run down from 40 – 1 will follow in the next couple of days…
