Ahh..... my bad, i read the title as "tracks of the year", ie : plural so more than one was allowed.
It's impossible to choose just one, my fav track of the year prob changes many times a day.

Mine too! Great choices btw. Just thought if everyone chose loads it would get to be too huge to bother going through them all. As it is, I for one, have listened to every single posting
John Newman sounds like a cross between Plan B and Vic Reeves pub singer to me. Don't get that at all.
DezB : Give him a chance - he's just finding his style at the moment. I'm subscribed to 100+ music blogs which necessitates spending an unhealthy amount of my time (according to my ex) listening to tunes (better than the **** soaps and tv she used to sit glued to for 4hrs a night) and he's been cropping up as a guest vocalist on some rather esoteric music scenes over the past 6 months, once he's got the awkward first album out of his system he may surprise you, Gilles Peterson (all hail the master and saviour of musical taste) seems to think he's worth watching.
I'm afraid i just don't get the noisy stuff such as cdoc's posting above (sign of reaching my 40's perhaps?), i try and find something to appreciate in every form of music but i'm at a loss with that one i'm afraid.
Loving the thread btw - keep it up peeps!.
To be fair, most metal is destroyed by pc / hifi speakers. It sounds very different/ less messy through headphones.
My second choice was 'Nightmares on Wax- So here we are'. Might be more up Soma's ally.
Also, metal has been proven to make you ride 15% faster, everywhere.
Yeah, i get what your saying regarding crap speakers as used by most pc users, what passes for some folks interpretation of "decent sound" has me smacking my head off the wall to make the bad noise go away, i'm an unashamed obsessed music snob and my mac runs a Native Instruments audio kontrol with cirrus logic 24bit/192khz A/D, D/A convertors as my external soundcard with KRK VXT6 or KRK Rokit 5's active monitors and KRK 10 sub so i guarantee i can very rapidly clear a room of any attractive girls if someone asks me about my system or musical tatstes. Also use/own a few headphones : Sennheiser HD-25's, B&W P3, Allan & Heath XD-53, Grado SR80's, KRK KNS 6400's.
Nightmares on Wax?.......now your talking
Six toes ^ , i like that a lot, that'll do for my walk round the shoreline t'day wi the wind blowing a hoolie and the spray bouncing up the cliffs ..... found their soundcloud page here
Am i allowed to post one track/vid per page? - ohhh go on then, i'll chance my luck....In the vein of six toes above i'll post a similar folky style, Linzi is a mate who can play the fiddle and guitar better than many who have been practising for a lifetime.
Lies is on pg1.
My prob with metal/rock/punk is its really all been done, the grunty vocals, same ol guitar riffs, but hey I understand people like to stick to the familiar, so no problem with other people diggin it. Good to hear something different from my usual on this thread too.
I would add Kanye West's glam stomper Black Skinhead if I wasn't on the ipad. Wanna hate him, and his lyrics are sometimes really bad, but such power in some of the tracks.
Planning to post a mix on Mixcloud later, so will link to that on here.
How about an "Albums of the year" thread?
Go for it!
Need to think about that..
I'm with muggomagic Cus me mums now flying free after being ravaged by cancer for the last 3 months.
benji has taken this thread outside, cast it into a deep dark hole of despair from which talent can never escape and backfilled it for good measure with fresh excrement spewn from previous X-Factor contestants arseholes whilst dropping an auto-tune machine loop on the resultant steaming pile of shite rather like a Glacë cherry on a cheap Greggs iced bun, people realise deep down that it is shite and bad for them but they still consume it.
Well no more.........I've had enough of trite shit music and i don't care who i upset!.
Got a bit carried away there......sorry.........
Sorry Somafunk, guess i'm not as funky as you. Is it time for a thread on Amanda Holden?
Just for the record don't watch x-factor or britain lacks talent.
