S’up peeps? We hope you had an amazing X-mas and destroyed yourself on the New Year. We did, and that’s just one of many reason why we’re not really back. Oh no sir, we’re still firmly on holiday; expect a return in a week or so.

We are sticking our head above water briefly, though, to let you know the results of The Blog Sound Of 2015! To remind you here are the 15 acts who placed in the long list: All We Are, Black Honey, Chloe Black, Coasts, Deers, Fickle Friends, Flyte, Halfrican, Honne, Låpsley, Prides, Shura, Soak, Sophie Jamieson and Tei Shi. And the winner is…Låpsley

Considering (once again) no-one we vote for make the final list, we can pretty much get on board with this result; the Liverpudlian singer.songwriter does deliver a pleasing line on brooding ElectroPop.

Anyhoo, we’re going back to sleep. Catch you in a few days!

[News] The Blog Sound Of 2015

 

Final_blog_logovonpip

It’s that time of year again. With the BBC just having released their Sound Of 2015 long list it falls to the UK music blogging community to do the same. Cast your eyes over this year’s collection of artists 62 UK music blogs voted on being their favourites over the past year

As with last year, no-one we voted for made the cut amidst the continuing shift in both the mainstream consciousness, and in the crazy world of blog hype, toward more Folky acts. We would suggest a broader selection of blogs are needed to give certain genres a chance of a look-in. However, with proper music blogging being a dying art, the blogs just aren’t there any-more. So, with some niche blogs having a certain lazy apathy, or indeed snobbiness toward participating if they’ve never heard of the acts that do make the cut, the results are unsurprising swayed toward artists with strong PR teams and mainstream ‘tastemaker’ appeal. But that’s democracy y’all, and we will continue to fly the flag for electronic music in the UK blog community (who despite our musical differences, we consider amazing bunch of passionate music obsessives who we would doff our hat to every time).

Having said that though; there is still some extremely tasty music to be found in the final list to wrap your synth loving ears around. The results will be announced 2nd January 2015.
