And so here we are, number one. I know I said that I would put this up yesterday but I wanted to build the suspense. There was also the small fact of it being New Years Day and the previous nights festivities did more than enough to keep me from blogging. Which reminds me, Happy … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Bullet In A Gun

Top 10 Tracks of the Year – All I Want

Kodaline

And so we reach the penultimate position of this chart. My selection should not come as a surprise to anyone even remotely familiar with the Irish Music Scene. The Dublin Alternative band, Kodaline, turned heads with their impressive single 'All I want'. So much so that it took the number two position in my tracks … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – All I Want

Jake Bugg

Jake Bugg took the music world by storm when he came on the scene earlier this year with his debut single, Lightning Bolt.

Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Sun

TDCC

The list and the 'Irishness' continues with the northern indie-rockers, Two Door Cinema Club. Their 2012 album, Beacon, provided an abundance of choice for this list. But above all one track stood out. That of course was 'Sun', which you probably could have guessed from the title. But anyway, it makes up the number six … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Sun

Raglans

In this stellar year for Irish music its only right that the number seven slot be filled by the up and coming Dublin indie-poppers, Raglans. Raglans - Digging Holes Digging Holes is taken from the band's debut EP, Long Live. The track itself is fun, energetic and a true sign of things to come. With … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Digging Holes

Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Breezeblocks

Alt-J-Breezeblocks

And so this humble list reaches number eight. To be fair no top list of 2012 songs would be complete without at least one song from the British Alternative Indie band, Alt J. Alt J - Breezeblocks Seeing as it's Christmas Day I'll keep this post short. Happy Listening and of course Happy Christmas.   … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – Breezeblocks
