January Top Ten

We didn’t do a top ten at the end of November. It had been a quiet month, and we were gearing up for our top twenty that we posted in December. Both months had a few great tunes that are too good to pass up though, so this month’s top ten has a few tracks from the end of last year too.

1 The Go! Team / The Scene Between

The Go! Team are back! Our top spot is the lead track from the band’s new album also called The Scene Between, out in March on Memphis Industries.

2 Anneka / End of It

End of It only features Anneka’s voice, but the layers and the textures  and the harmonies demand repeat listens.

3 GAPS / She Bears a Flower

GAPS latest release came out right at the end of November last year sounding like some a futuristic remix of an Elizabethan childrens folk song.

4 Ambassadeurs / Forever

Forever is the lead track from Ambassadeurs latest EP out last month. Ambassadeurs play a gig at The Green Door Store at the end of the month, supported by Foreign Skin.

5 The Fiction Aisle / Blue

We liked Tom White’s new band’s first proper track so much that we got it into our end of the year round up, even though it hadn’t been in one of our top ten posts. Since we’re catching up on November here it would be wrong of us to omit it.

6 David Harks / Odyssey

We loved Open Arms, also taken from David Harks’ Lomo EP but shared much earlier in the year, as soon as we heard it but Odyssey was much more of a slow burner working it’s way under our skin until we couldn’t stop listening to it.

7 Tyrannosaurus DeadFlying Ant Day

Tyrannosaurus Dead were the first band we ever interviewed on the blog, so it’s great to see their debut album (also called Flying Ant Day) finally released.

8 Seadog / Transmitter

Seadog’s Transmitter EP was launched at the end of December, while most of us were busy being distracted. The physical release is due in the springtime, but you can grab the EP now if you head over to Bandcamp.

9 Phantom Runners / Laserbeam

Laserbeam is a free download from Phantom Runnerscover on Soundcloud. Hanging out with Huey Morgan (who’s produced their last few tracks) is obviously rubbing off – this is the most laid back thing they’ve done.

10 Man Ray Sky / Ether Song

Finishing up with the title track from an EP from December, Ether Song is four minutes of breezy guitar pop.
