Right, I’ll say at the very start of this post I’ve stole these lists from elsewhere but what the hell else is the internet for? Maybe, I should say it’s a re-post which is just nicer way to put that! But I’ve waited until almost the the end of January posted them on my little blog but off course I’ve found all albums/songs on Bandcamp, soundcloud, YouTube and embedded them below plus joining the 2 lists together.
This post is adding to my collection of all things HTRK here. Which if you’ve forgotten they score my fave album of last year, linked here. If anyone else out there that are HTRK fans or whatever? That haven’t seen/heard their list already? Well, aren’t you very lucky today! They where both from record label Bookmat’s website end of last year features and here are the links to Nigel and Jonnine list’s original pages too! BTW both list were numbered but I’ve not added the numbers below. I haven’t changed the order or anything so it goes top spot is first with a going down order, OK? I’ve really enjoy listening all their picks so I do hope anyone who press plays does too? Anyway I’ll shut-up now and here’s the music!
