    Excellent. Hopefully you'll have time to catch tomorrow's Christmas chart before next Friday.
    What!?
    Seasonal torture again

    My greetings card.
    Tomorrow is a winter solstice, astronomical event that spawned all those events that we are celebrated these days,
    and is a real start of the new year in northern hemisphere.
    So i wish you and your family all the best and
    May nothing but happines come through your door in 2015.

      You'll hopefully see there's little that's torturous in any of my seasonal pics.

        17 NEW Dum Dum Girls - On Christmas AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
        Best so far by her/them.

        Bit late with this but spare a thought for the homeless and destitute at Christmas.

        19 NEW Man Without Country - Puppets VIDEO / All Is Full Of Love AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
        Yes, it's a Bjork cover!

        20 NEW Purity Ring - Push Pull AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
        More pop than before.

        21 NEW Amanda Palmer - The Angel Gabriel AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
        From Amazon's All Is Bright festive playlist (which also includes a pointless rework of Happy Xmas (War Is Over) by Ono and the Lips and a dreadful version of the Slade classic by Ladyhawke). Speaking of which...

        22 NEW Pulled Apart By Horses - Merry Christmas Everybody AUDIO STREAM
        Punked-up version of Slade. First thing i've ever liked by PABH.

        23 NEW Los Campesinos! - When Christmas Comes AUDIO
        24 NEW White Sea - Future Husbands, Past Lives AUDIO STREAM VIDEO
        Not to be confused with Low Sea, White Sea is Morgan Kibby who worked on the past two M83 albums.

        Not as keen on the happy hardcore track that leads it. I think the "5" bit on the EP title is a Deadmau5 ref!

        33 15 Shy For Shore - Love, Again (9 weeks; peak #1)
        34 16 ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - The Ghost Within (9 weeks; peak #3)

        • Nice to see the Kelly Clarkson rises/re-entries on the singles and albums fronts - I think it's a choice Christmas pop album, and definitely one of my favourites from the past couple of years.

          Also pleased to still see Echosmith so high, I'm hooked on the song myself.

                  I've never heard them properly til Royksopp album - no airplay or media at all in UK. And as with others, it takes better tracks to get you into an act. I actually prefer All Is Full Of Love to Puppets so i'll reverse the credit next week. I also prefer Sweet Harmony so that will be higher.

                  Thanks, Heppolo. Not seen a big list reply for quite some time. Surprised you don't rate Pawws' Sugar EP.

                  • Great #1 track, need to check new Smashing and Alex Kingston! Still not sure about her though, she is too similar to Kate from what I've heard!
                    My tits are made of silicone, just like the Earth and sea...

                      It takes time to construct a message here. I just have accidentally deleted Pawws'

                          • I discovered today that exercise books are no longer widely sold. I've used them for my charts since 1987 (sales) and 1993 (personal). Now you have disposable folders and refill pads that fall to bits within months or days. Exercise books were sturdy things that lasted - i was forced to get a Fabriano EcoQua Bioprima book which is 3 times the cost but the only comparable thing in terms of compact size, durability and the lined pages. Maybe it's to do with schools no longer using them?

                            MY CHART DECEMBER 28th 2014

                            1 11 Man Without Country with White Sea - Laws Of Motion
                            AUDIO STREAM VIDEO (2 weeks; PEAK)


                            Can't think of much better 80s/10s sound fusions than this.

                            2 NEW Holly Johnson - Heaven's Eyes LYRIC VIDEO


                            3 1 The Unthanks - Mount The Air (6 weeks; peak #1)

                            5 12 Alex Winston - Careless (2 weeks; PEAK)
                            6 NEW Veronica Maggio - Latsas Som Det Regnar (Pretend That It's Raining) VIDEO / Jarly Remix AUDIO STREAM

                            Found on Heppolo's chart. Lovely melody and great emotion from beautiful Swede (who may or may not have an Italian father?). Lyrics translation: here

                            7 3 Faith No More - Motherf*cker (4 weeks; peak #2)
                            8 4 Echosmith - Cool Kids (26 weeks; peak #1)
                            What an absolute f-up of poor marketing in UK. :evil:

                            9 2 Smoke Fairies - 3 Kings (4 weeks; peak #2)
                            10 5 Jessie Ware - You and I (Forever) (7 weeks; peak #2)

                            12 NEW Princess Chelsea - No Church On Sunday VIDEO

                            Another one of Heppolo's is this synth track by NZ artist - vast improvement on past arty fare. Apt song for me since i left the church.

                            13 6 Najoua Belyzel - Que Sont-Ils Devenus? (What Have We Become?) VIDEO V.2 (4 weeks; peak #4)
                            For some reason she made the first video hidden after she'd uploaded a second with different lighting. As she doesn't want the first to be shared i'm posting this one for future reference.

                            14 NEW Shy For Shore - Steal My Car VIDEO
                            15 NEW Man Without Country - Claymation / Oilspill / Catfish AUDIO STREAM VIDEO / Deadsea (Entropy Pt. 1 EP) EP STREAM

                            18 NEW Tom Waits - God's Away On Business Cookie Monster FAN VIDEO / VIDEO
                            Heard this on Iggy Pop's final stand-in show on 6 Music - and found that hilarious mash-up video with anarchic Muppet Cookie Monster who it sounds like!

                            19 14 Pawws - Time To Say Goodbye / Slow Love (2 weeks; peak #14)
                            20 NEW Veronica Maggio - Sergels Torg (Sergels Square) VIDEO (swearing in Swedish)

                            44 NEW Veronica Maggio - Mitt Hjarter Bloder (My Heart Bleeds) VIDEO
                            Great video - in which the usually sarcastic British phrase is most definitely spelled out as serious. Nice acting. Lyrics translation: here

                            • Fantastic #1 album, and I can see why Inception has risen up like this.

                              Still need to check Gone Girl (the ST). Is it on Spotify?

                                  Yes, but the link was posted when i first charted it - i only link new entries usually. https://play.spotify.com/album/3RP0tRQ51HVC57O8q9jCw2
                                  I never got round to listening to Inception before as free streaming wasn't a thing then though i knew it all, obviously.

                                  I haven't scanned any of my books. Maybe in the future.

                                    Oh do it please. It is always exciting to see handly written charts, I used to write them down too! I think I had a lot books with charts from US/UK and mostly from Germany from mid 90s

                                    • Edited chart as i missed last week's #2 which is now at 9. Only realised when i went to copy it in my new Eco book. I usually do it in the book first but i've been doing it by cut and paste quickly more recently to get it in in time for 11:40 - CZB's Parade.

                                              2 NEW Moulettes - Glorious Year (Turn Of The Centuries) VIDEO

                                              Another highlight from eclectic folk act's album.

                                              3 2 Man Without Country with White Sea - Laws Of Motion VIDEO (4 weeks; peak #1)
                                              4 RE Sia - Elastic Heart OFFICIAL VIDEO (10 weeks; peak #2)

                                              An extraordinary video featuring her persona Maddie and fellow "bag head" and fame-shy star Shia. There's a clear message in it but i'll leave it to others to work out. This release (on her album) does NOT feature The Weeknd and doesn't credit him or producer Diplo - despite what iTunes tells you - that version is on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire album only. For my purposes i'm keeping that version's chart run but only credited Sia this time.

                                              5 NEW Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do AUDIO STREAM VIDEO

                                              Film was on TV. Parts of this sound like Faith No More's recent single - the backbone of it.

                                                • Moulettes interesting - Constellations is for me better than Glorious Year (Turn Of The Centuries)
                                                  Glorious year too folky for my taste,
                                                  Sia video is great, but music, just no.
                                                  Like Imogen Heap song, and
                                                  love Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do

                                                        Presumably by the notifications in the video posting title this is not an official new single.

                                                        40 NEW First Aid Kit - America VIDEO

                                                        Best tracks are the ballads weirdly - including German version of Scorpions' Wind Of Change.

                                                        14 RE Missing Persons / Dale Bozzio - Missing In Action (10 weeks; peak #1)

                                                            MY CHART JANUARY 25th 2015

                                                            1 NEW Bjork - Stonemilker
                                                            AUDIO (Track 1)

                                                            :x :x
                                                            These are all the emotions i went through this week after her new album turned up on iTunes only a week after it was announced because of a ridiculously early leak. What would i do? I had no money for another week. I wasn't planning for this. There's no official streams yet. I don't do illegal downloads. I don't even buy legal downloads if it's good enough for a CD purchase - which this is. I'm not buying it twice. Anyway after a fruitless Google search i eventually found an unofficial stream - which supposedly uses the same source as the original leak. A stream is OK for me as you're not downloading it therefore it's not yours to keep - and i can't see any download link at all on that site. Honestly why do people in the business insist on ruining the artists' plans? I'm grateful i can hear it but the whole joy of absorbing an album when you buy the CD has gone completely. You're not a fan if you're not keeping up with everyone else and everyone else wants it RIGHT FRIGGING NOW.

                                                            So, the song. Well it's a tear-jerking thing of beauty - a return to the beats and strings of the immortal Joga. The ominous precursor to her breakdown with former partner Matthew Barney - milking a stone being her unique take on the blood from a stone analogy. The only song on the album that sounds like an obvious single and would no doubt be a grat if she'd taken the Madonna option. Hence this album track makes my Hits chart despite not being earmarked for single/video/promo yet at all - nothing has, she's only just finalised the physical release date - 9th March for the album. See Album Chart.

                                                            2 1 Marina and The Diamonds - Immortal (4 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            And Marina's next promo song was also leaked on Tuesday (a week before radio premiere). :evil: She has said - somewhat in contrast to her past opinions on leaks - that she doesn't mind people listening but it's low quality so i've resisted. I would hope she's not so relaxed about leaked albums anymore as my whole UKMix Forum stance would be shot to pieces, and i certainly don't want another Bjork situation. :x

                                                            3 2 Moulettes - Glorious Year (Turn Of The Centuries) (3 weeks; peak #2)
                                                            4 5 Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do VIDEO (3 weeks; PEAK)

                                                            Clearly, the film is about "love". Not until near the end of the vid do you get a hint of the true nature of their "love". One wonders if Dougie "loves" her like this.

                                                            5 7 Charli XCX with Rita Ora - Doing It VIDEO (3 weeks; PEAK)

                                                            It's not a Telephone copy, it just uses the same influences. My God, she looks like Raquel Welch in that pic. EDIT: i think i mean Sophia Loren or Gina Lollobrigida.

                                                            6 3 Man Without Country with White Sea - Laws Of Motion (6 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            7 4 Sia - Elastic Heart (12 weeks; peak #2)
                                                            8 NEW Monarchy - Dancing In The Corner VIDEO

                                                            One of their best yet - like a stoned slowed-down Scissor Sisters.

                                                            9 NEW Fiona Grey - Beauty Queen VIDEO

                                                            A friend of both Charli XCX and Chloe from Kitten (who appears in this video the "tart" - see Break The Rules). Fiona is a little more arty - this track (not a Foxes cover) is another vaguely LDR kind of light pop ballad.

                                                            10 6 Jessie Ware - You and I (Forever) (11 weeks; peak #2)
                                                            11 8 Holly Johnson - Heaven's Eyes (5 weeks; peak #2)
                                                            12 10 Alex Winston - Careless (6 weeks; peak #5)
                                                            13 NEW The Go! Team - The Scene Between VIDEO
                                                            They've turned into The Polyphonic Spree! Pure hippy rock vibes! Great melody and happiness.

                                                            14 15 Taylor Swift - Style (2 weeks; PEAK)

                                                            21 12 Shy For Shore - Steal My Car (5 weeks; peak #11)

                                                            Never thought they'd be even recording these days never mind being great again.

                                                            24 14 Princess Chelsea - No Church On Sunday (5 weeks; peak #10)

                                                            Not the best on the new mini-album but selected as a "single" by BBC 6 Music.

                                                            30 26 Charli XCX - Breaking Up (8 weeks; peak #6)

                                                            31 24 Purity Ring - Push Pull (6 weeks; peak #14)

                                                            MY ALBUM CHART JANUARY 25th 2015

                                                            1 NEW Bjork - Vulnicura
                                                            UNOFFICIAL STREAM

                                                            Co-produced by Arca, it's her best and most accessible album since Vespertine (though it's not in the same league) and most recalls the beats and strings of Homogenic while having the consistency of sound and feeling of Vespertine. Stonemilker aside, the other standouts are Mouth Mantra with its infectious skipping beats and the dark jazz frills of Notget. Elsewhere it's very dark and frank - particularly on the epic Black Lake - not actually her longest ever track, that is the 15 minute Prayer Of The Heart she did for John Tavener which i bought his album for back when i was an obsessive - where she accuses ex Matthew Barney of being so obsessed with his art he neglected his family. Ouch!
                                                            Now if only i had a CD copy so i could appreciate the bass properly. There isn't even an Amazon CD pre-order AutoRip version (just a CD at present) :-? - though maybe it will be uploaded on Amazon digital soon so that can happen?

                                                            For most of the week this next album was #1...
                                                            2 NEW Man Without Country - Maximum Entropy SPOTIFY

                                                            As before (in fact a lot of it was already released on EPs). A pity they had no coverage bar the critics who know. The album never even made the iTunes top 1500 when i checked on release.

                                                            3 1 Olafur Arnalds - Broadchurch (OTVST - S1/S2) (3 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            One Icelander knocks off another!

                                                            4 NEW Aphex Twin - Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt2 (MA) SPOTIFY
                                                            It's a shorter set but it's more consistent and satisfying than Syro. Don't go looking for Pt1.

                                                            5 NEW Fiona Grey - Belladonna (MA) SPOTIFY


                                                            6 NEW Justin Hurwitz and Tim Simonec - Whiplash (OST) SPOTIFY

                                                            Fantastic film - Full Metal Drumkit, basically in which a young drum player gets a harsh run of lessons from a tyrant of a teacher (JK Simmons who is Oscar-bound). Hurwitz and Simonec provide most of the score though a different Spotify upload assigns some tracks to other artists (but misses off some from the stream). Never thought i'd be charting a drum-based instrumental jazz album!

                                                            7 NEW Above and Beyond - We Are All We Need SPOTIFY
                                                            8 12 Man Without Country - Foe (6 weeks; peak #2)
                                                            9 NEW Beatrice Eli - Die Another Day SPOTIFY
                                                            10 NEW Saor Patrol - Outlander SPOTIFY
                                                            Scottish folk rock and pipes band who raced up iTunes after a UK TV appearance for upcoming Burns Night. Pronounced "shore" patrol - means freedom in Gaelic.

                                                            11 NEW The Feminine Complex - Livin' Love SPOTIFY
                                                            All-female psychedelic band from the 60s who i saw Charli XCX rave about in an interview. The first half of the reissue is spruced up sessions, the second half raw demos of just the girls.

                                                            12 NEW The Waterboys - Modern Blues SPOTIFY
                                                            13 2 Sky Ferreira - Night Time, My Time (24 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            14 3 Beck - Morning Phase (11 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            15 NEW Johan Johannsson - The Theory Of Everything (OST) SPOTIFY
                                                            Another great film - two amazing performances. Over-rated soundtrack, though - little more than a set of short cues with only a few standout themes. The third Icelander on the chart and the second soundtrack composer.

                                                            16 4 The Birthday Massacre - Superstition (11 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            17 5 Banks - Goddess (13 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            18 6 Blondie - Ghosts Of Download (13 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            19 8 The Jezabels - The Brink (9 weeks; peak #1)
                                                            20 9 Jessie Ware - Tough Love (13 weeks; peak #1)
