It’s been another good year for music and this blog! Let’s take a moment for a quick recap, and compare with what was promised a year ago…
Once we’d finally finished messing around with the extended Christmas break, we were back! Loads of reviews, free mp3s, and more!
As promised we worked our way gently towards the BRIT Awards 2013 with a journey through a pile of older ceremonies!
The Playlist for stowaways launched, and has kept over one person entertained with intermittent mixtapes.
OMD came back. Again. With an album that was a little bit better than their previous comeback History of Modern.
We covered Kraftwerk‘s 3D concert in Singapore!
We celebrated the 25th anniversary of Depeche Mode‘s 101 performance in Pasadena by reviewing the album!
Pet Shop Boys reappeared with the iridescent Electric, pretty much undeniably their best album since 1993’s Very.
No idea whether One Direction turned out to be any good or not… They probably twerked a bit or something.
Goldfrapp turned up again, more pastoral than ever, with the totally delightful Tales of Us.
We celebrated the Q Awards and the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2013.
Bonkers Frenchman Sébastien Tellier reappeared with his latest album.
And that just about wraps it up for 2013! Have fun tonight!
