Top 50 Tracks of 2012!!!

It’s been a long old time since I last wrote a blog, but as par my self-imposed annual tradition, here is the first of several “end of the year” lists. This year has been a mixed one for music, with many artists choosing either to revel in weak faux nostalgia (Frank Ocean, Green Day, No Doubt, Garbage, Bloc Party etc), or turn their hand to heavily overproduced sludge. Nevertheless, in the 50 tracks below (represented by some absolutely stunning music videos) you will find a curious concoction of Russian pop, Japanese Rock, Italian dance, whimpering Witch House, banging Brooklyn Hip Hop, irritating Indie, manic depressive Metal and the best music to ever come out of Brighton!
