Hottest 100 votes for 2012

I don’t really listen to the radio much anymore.  Okay, to be more specific – I don’t listen to the radio at all these days.  This past year I’ve mostly been listening to post-rock/ambient stuff that noone else has heard of (except Tan), dubstep, and trance.  None of those genres tend to feature on Triple J much anyway eh.

So there are a lot of bands in the Hot 100 this year that I know I’ve heard tracks from, but I don’t know the names of.  There are bands that I probably should be including, previous faves of mine such as City and Colour, Beastie Boys, Gotye, Elbow, Justice, PNAU, TV on the Radio, among others (some of whom I did see live last year too) and if I’d given all their new stuff a proper listen to, my list might look somewhat different.

But here it is:

  • Agnes Obel – Riverside
  • Bon Iver – Perth
  • Graveyard Train – Dead Folk Dance
  • Jay-Z & Kanye West – Why I Love You
  • Northeast Party House – Embezzler
  • The Panics – Majesty
  • Radiohead – Lotus Flower
  • Sietta – No Longer Hurt
  • Sietta – What Am I Supposed To Do?
  • Skrillex – First of the Year (Equinox)

I highly recommend checking out local artists Sietta, The Panics, Graveyard Train and Northeast Party House, if you haven’t already.

And I’m not going to apologise for voting for Skrillex. I like that song!
