A bit of a different podcast for you this month (and at nearly 2 hours, a long one) as myself and Aoife sat down and talked about the best things that happened in 2010. We cover Irish acts and labels we loved this year, gigs of 2010, albums and songs of 2010, tv and video moments of the year and my own personal discovery of the year – Shangaan Electro. Full rundown below. Artwork by Stephen Graham.

Music blog best Brighton’s The Recommender recently held a public vote open to music bloggers around the world to decide what were the best music blogs of 2010. I’m delighted to tell you that my music bloggy peers voted Nialler9 in fifth place. Considering there are 3,800 music blogs listed on Elbo.ws that’s a pretty good feat. It’s always nice to be recognised particularly from people in the same field so thanks to all you took the time to vote. I’d much rather place in this than win this yoke. It’s all downhill from here folks..

The top five blogs as voted were:

1. Sunset in The Rearview
2. Pigeons & Planes
3. One Thirty BPM
4. Joined – Gorilla Vs. Bear / Song By Toad
5. Nialler9

Narrowly missed out: Consequence Of Sound, Illegal Tender, Pretty Much Amazing, Stereogum and We All Want Someone To Shout For.
