    The Jezebels (just missed my 50 but they do get in with something else).
    I will click on them when you get further up and possibly describe some of them?

    #199, #196 and #157 are gorgeous folk ballads
    #185 is a mysterious dreamy synth pop song
    #184 and #154 are very tasty french indie pop gems
    #182, #177 and especially #151 are indie rock songs you might like
    #168 is a jazzy entry
    #167 is a polish indie pop girl singing about the ghost of soviet past (hence the Black Volga mention)
    #156 is one of the best synthpop acts/singers in the world right now with the wry lyrics and a meaningful stance like no other

    Bubbling Under (#150-#126)
    #126 Preoccupations - Degrade – getting into the experimental rock side of things
    #127 ????? ????? - ?? ??? – famous Ukrainian pop/rock band with another of their hits
    #128 Cardinal - Doombringers – grungy rock with a bit of both garage and stoner influences, cool guitar vibes
    #129 Smashing Birds - We're still just animals – Belgian band with a mysterious indie tune
    #130 Tax The Heat - Fed To The Lions – amazing alternative rock with a bit of sleaze rock
    #131 Sound Me - High Heels – the best trip-hop song this year for me
    #132 Mutes - Knotting Off The Vein – post-punkish alternative, Gang of Four-esque approach
    #133 Flora Cash - Nightmare – folk ballad, beautiful female voice, a mix full of life, colour and mystery
    #134 Samaris - R4vin – amazing album, synthpop meets Gus Gus
    #135 Damp Flannel – Andy Got A Skateboard – I am a bit biased here, but guys actually logged on UKMix only to comment in my chart (and I liked their garage-y song as well)
    #136 Zebra Island - How Many Times – first entry of this Estonian band in 2016 annual chart, which echoes some of the earliest Madonna songs
    #137 Matthew And The Atlas - On A Midnight Street – a distinctive voice provides this recognizable indie rock song
    #138 Aloha Orchestra - Close Your Eyes – synth rock from France, dangerously catchy and dodgy accent
    #139 Hinds - Warts – a very accessible slice of indie pop
    #140 Omar Rodriguez-Lopez - Running Away – taste of our indie medicine
    #141 Glass Animals - Life Itself – critically praised band
    #142 Lower Than Atlantis - Had Enough – one of more famous bands in my annual chart, a rather accessible piece of alternative rock
    #143 Champagne Babylon - The Kids Don't Know What They Want – ambitious indie rock, sounds like Art Brut circa mid 00s
    #144 DYGL - Let It Sway – Japanese indie/garage band, a nice take on british accent
    #145 Australia - Breathe In – post-punk revival is right here
    #146 Shock Machine - Lost In The Mystery –the best song by a former member of Klaxons so far
    #147 Froth – Contact – indie rock with a psychedelic undertone
    #148 Francis Faubert - Moman – French chanson with a husky, low voice
    #149 Is Tropical - Believe – female-fronted indie pop act
    #150 COIN - Talk Too Much – pop/rock song that got quite a lot of airplay recently

    #97 Nakamarra - Little Bit - a subtle indie folk/electronic song

    Great to see Biffy in the top 100 with Wolves... though I classed it as their lowest hit of the 4 singles! I ranked all in my top 100 though!

    Re-Arrange is too poppy for me, Animal Style is great though

    This is a treasure chest! (nothing less is expected)
    AustraliA and Radio Elvis are great.
    Really hope to find a minute to check the other songs out!
    (Huge nods for featuring so much music from outside of the UK-USA axis!)

    More like Deep Vally sound-wise. Not bad.

    Ryan Vail song i like. I like Echo Ladies as you know.
    Spectre good - i recognised most of the posters but couldn't name all of them!

    "#92 Leisure - Got It Bad - a very accesible pop song (New Zealand)"
    Quite good. Sounds very 90s like The Avalanches or I-Monster.

    Amber Arcades good.

    Sigur Ros brilliant - missed my 50 (made shortlist of roughly top 80).
