Festive Ten 2010

Another year, another list. Today I record the Festive Fingers special with Mark for his fabulously poppy music blog Bitter Fingers. As he blogged his list last week, so I blog mine now.

The Festive Ten is a tradition started shortly after John Peel’s death, in which myself and a rotating cast of friends and villains gather and compare out top tracks of the last twelve months. If you want to know what I thought of this selection you’ll have to listen to Festive Fingers, Part 1, next week.

Remember, these aren’t ranks; this is more a tracklist for a short mixtape. You can find a Spotify playlist of the whole lot right here, or follow the playlinks in brackets.

Track 1: “Indestructible” – Robyn (HypeMachine)
Track 2: “Sweepstakes” – Gorillaz feat. Mos Def and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (HypeMachine)
