Here’s Part 2 of our tracks of 2012. It’s a mixcast this time, so you have 36 minutes of marvellous music without us talking nonsense. Like Part 1, it’s another selection of 10 songs that we’ve loved this year and played relentlessly on the podcast and our ipods. No punches were thrown in the compiling of this list. Just a few mild swear words. Enjoy.
Something that wasn’t intentional with our 20 tracks of 2012 is that all the artists on our list are Scottish. A testimony of sorts to the strength of Scotland’s music scene in 2012 and it can only be encouraging for 2013. Makes you proud to be Scottish.
A mixcast this week rather than the usual podcast as we recover from last Friday’s outstanding Netsounds Takeover night in Mad Hatters. Chris Devotion & The Expectations were superb and the crowd loved them as much as the band clearly loved the case of beer we had stashed for them behind a curtain. Naked Strangers were great and final act Discopolis blew the place apart.
Anyhoo, back to the mixcast. 10 bands making their Netsounds debut on the 10th Mixcast with artists from Scotland, U.S and Wales featuring. The first 9 songs are are mix of pure Rock and Electronica, whilst the 10th is a stunning track, featuring a 17-piece orchestra.
Have a listen, visit the bands pages and tell them that they’re great. Ta.
