        • More info on Sleaford Mods' achievements on 2014 Albums Of The Year lists - they made in fact four top 50's and #3 in Mojo as well as #9 in NME as i stated. The reason you haven't heard them is because radio barely plays them due to the copious amounts of swearing (6 Music and XFM usually only play them occasionally at night. Current single Tiswas is one of the few un-sweary songs they have).

          Haven forum are doing a list of the top albums compiled from all the critics' polls - Mods are so far the 12th best album of the year.

          4. FKA Twigs -- LP1 :: 446
          5. Caribou -- Our Love :: 427

          • Great album and the killer track Tiswas. It reminds me of Ian Dury. And this dialect (East Midlands English dialect slang, according to Wiki). At least somebody in England sings in English.

            P.S. Happy Birthday!

                MY CHART DECEMBER 7th 2014

                1 3 The Unthanks - Mount The Air
                VIDEO (3 weeks; PEAK)

                Apologies if this wide pic causes problems with slow connections.

                2 4 Jessie Ware - You and I (Forever) VIDEO (4 weeks; peak #2)


                3 1 The Birthday Massacre - Destroyer (5 weeks; peak #1)
                4 NEW Najoua Belyzel - Que Sont-Ils Devenus? (What Have We Become?) VIDEO

                French singer who made the fantastic Gabriel several years ago returns with a song nearly as good.

                5 NEW Smoke Fairies - 3 Kings VIDEO

                From a winter themed album out next week - not the famous Christmas song We Three Kings. Looks like a folk music Christmas for me then. Will it knock off The Unthanks?

                6 NEW Charli XCX - Breaking Up VIDEO

                New single proper, out now as a grat.

                7 2 The Birthday Massacre - Beyond (5 weeks; peak #2)

                2010 release that was part of West's GOOD Friday weekly free releases. No video and no major promotion so i only heard it via searching for other things just this week. Great feel to it.

                NO ILLEGAL DOWNLOAD DISCUSSION PLEASE. THAT'S WHAT THE STREAMS ARE FOR.

                1 1 The Birthday Massacre - Superstition
                (4 weeks; peak #1) 4 WEEKS AT #1! SPOTIFY

                5 5 Gemma Hayes - Bones and Longing (3 weeks; peak #5)
                6 6 Various Artists - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (OST / Inspired By) (3 weeks; peak #6)

                10 NEW Nico and Vinz - Black Star Elephant SPOTIFY

                Deserves to be bigger than it is in UK. Several similar catchy melodies like Am I Wrong? I think the follow-up singles are the wrong choices.

                11 NEW Wu-Tang Clan - A Better Tomorrow SPOTIFY

                Takes a while to get going but some great melodies and rhymes on their first album in seven years.

                12 15 Little Big Town - Pain Killer (7 weeks; peak #5)
                13 16 Sleaford Mods - Divide and Exit (6 weeks; PEAK)
                14 10 Sleaford Mods - Tiswas (MA) (2 weeks; peak #10)
                15 NEW Beans On Toast - The Grand Scheme Of Things SPOTIFY
                Folk singer named after UK's fave cheap meal returns.

                18 NEW Mogwai - Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1 (MA) SPOTIFY
                The three remixes are more impressive than the three album offcuts.

                19 NEW Parralox - Holiday '14 (MA) SPOTIFY
                Led by Little Drum Machine Boy, this festive release has three tracks associated with The Human League and the title is a nod to their Holiday '80 EP.

                20 NEW Kiesza - Sound Of A Woman SPOTIFY

                        • If i had something to say about Kiesza i'd have said it. I barely charted Hideaway so it can't be a surprise that the album is low.

                          You don't even post a chart anymore.

                          I would be giving things away if i commented on other Shura songs.

                                  13 NEW Marina and The Diamonds - Happy AUDIO STREAM VIDEO

                                  This month's Froot grat is a ballad with fairly cliched lyrics. I have to say i hope these grats will improve as a #5 and a #13 are not good enough for an artist like her.

                                  Another ballad with fairly cliched lyrics - but by his standards one of his best. Perfect for Christmas.

                                  20 13 Calvin Harris with Ellie Goulding - Outside (8 weeks; peak #8)

                                  MY ALBUM CHART DECEMBER 14th 2014

                                  NO ILLEGAL DOWNLOAD DISCUSSION PLEASE. THAT'S WHAT THE STREAMS ARE FOR.

                                  1 NEW Smoke Fairies - Wild Winter
                                  SPOTIFY

                                  Top album for Christmas, i think. More of their dark electro-folk.

                                  2 1 The Birthday Massacre - Superstition (5 weeks; peak #1)
                                  3 NEW Young Summer - Siren SPOTIFY
                                  I somehow missed this August release for the synth female.

                                  4 NEW Smashing Pumpkins - Monuments To An Elegy SPOTIFY
                                  Synth-pop returns in parts! Not as grand as the title but what's new!

                                  5 NEW Howard Shore - The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (OST) SPOTIFY
                                  Possibly the best of the three scores for an exciting finale.

                                  6 2 ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - IX (8 weeks; peak #1)
                                  7 3 Royksopp - The Inevitable End (5 weeks; peak #3)
                                  8 4 Jessie Ware - Tough Love (9 weeks; peak #1)
                                  9 NEW Los Campesinos! - A Los Campesinos! Christmas (MA) SPOTIFY
                                  When Christmas Comes is a good lead, the cover of Mud's Lonely This Christmas not so sure!

                                  10 5 Gemma Hayes - Bones and Longing (4 weeks; peak #5)

                                  Tony's Charts ft Hits / Albums (15th Feb 20) - Cam, Polly Scattergood, Cerrone, Blanche, Seth Lakeman, La Roux

                                    • Echokids remix is cool!

                                      Still haven't listened to Marina new sounds, I think I will order vinyl without listening (and regret later).

                                      Shura is charting woo!!

                                      Wait, the same chart for 7th and 14th Dec? You should re-write last week position for the latter chart then

                                        • Your #1 song is gorgeous, video too! (Although her head in the background was not necessary)

                                          Your #1 album sounds interesting too, will try it on YT to see what I think! Also new Smashing Pumpkins! Hmm.

                                          Thanks!

                                              Two heads actually. I feel it helps to see the singers, The animation is a little basic on its own.

                                              • ^ Yeah I meant the bit where it's just one head.

                                                I'm going to download this song, thanks for that mate.
