I’ve had my say, now we’re kicking off your say in the first results of the readers’ poll with your top Irish EPs and new artists of 2011.Both those lists follow along with links and embeds to where you can hear why they got the votes they did.
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.
The post-MTV generation of music videos means that the internet is where it’s at for the artform. I love music videos and the marriage of visuals to music almost as much as the songs themselves, so here’s a list of my 30 favourite of 2010. It was hard to cap it at just 30. (more…)
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..
My favourite remixes (and a few mashups) of 2010. We get three apiece from two apiece from Four Tet and Alex Metric while Letherette and Clock Opera get two each. Plenty of great stuff here all the same.
