So good to see so many great British bands in your list.
I'm still surprised by your love for Bastions and The James Cleaver Quintet because they're both really small, even in the UK. I love the internet.
Yeaaah homie, Brit love all up in this place! Curious-- do you like White Lies? And I love Bastions, was happy to rep them in this year's calendar, though I wish I'd made the photo bigger so that it'd have been more noticeable. The bit of JCQ just sounded real crazy and interesting to me, like PATD meets Blood Brothers.
good shit. Front Bottoms, IIOI, K.Dot, The Roots, Fireworks, Foundation, and Fucked Up are all probably gonna land in my top 20. nice list
Thanks Dan. Can't wait to see your list. Front Bottoms was one of the best surprises I found this year. I can't stop listening to "Boredom is the Reason I Started..." I've probably started to listen to more folk this year than I've ever done before.
