12. Jacques Green - No Excuse (I have no real interest in this indie EDM phase going on and have no time for most of it, but this one hit me just right, love the force of the percussion)

 
His stuff from 2011/2012 is kind of house/UK funky/future garage hybrid, surprised if he has jumped on the EDM craze. Have to check the tune out, love his earlier work. He did an amazing rework of Radiohead on awesome The King Of Limbs remix album.
 

The last few years I've gotten a little lazy with basically only listening to stuff from bands I already know, stuff I hear in movies, or stuff that's highly, highly recommended, so I'm trying to put in a little more effort this year into listening to new stuff.  I've tried it the last couple years, but I usually just perused Pitchfork's Best New Tracks, hated nearly everything and went back to my familiar security blanket bands, but this year I've tried hitting up a few sites and blogs and trying out stuff even if it doesn't sound like something I'd like.

 
It's a lot harder to find good new stuff now than in, say, 2006. More websites, more bands, more ways of releasing music, less traditional releases and traditional promo, so many blogs. Plus now I know a ton more artists so just following the ones I already like is challenging without finding new stuff. Does seem to be hard to find consensus tunes nowadays, even in the way '212' and 'Video Games' were in 2011. Go back to 2005 and everyone talking about music online pretty much loves Outkast, Radiohead etc and keeps track of releases. Now everyone is online, sharing music, listening to music. Far too fragmented to keep up.
 
Most of the BNT's Pitchfork puts up are fairly average. Fact has a horrible style, RA just did an awful website design, PopJustice isn't uncovering as many acts as it used to. Stereogum is pretty good, agree with that, although again sometimes they have too much stuff out there.
 
There is so much available now that I hardly listen to any of it more than once, so hard to become attached to songs. Like the Sky Ferreira album is really great, but at the time I just sort of discarded it after a couple of listens instead of really getting to know it. An album from an artist I liked would come out a few years ago and I would play it ten times in the first few days, that rarely happens anymore.
 
The decline of the SOMB and other message boards hasn't helped, used to hear about so much cool music from people on here or from the buzz on forums whereas now that never really happens. Everyone has their own Twitter or Tumblr blog or whatever to rep music.

Waves - you ever follow GorillavsBear? I feel in the last 3 years or so they transitioned from a regular indie rock blog/site to one more focused electro-pop, indie pop, etc. They were one of the first to break Yumi Zumma and their monthly mp3 mixes are stellar.

I just started looking at the site after coming accross it via a Yuki Zouma google search. Really like it, and as you say the monthly mixes are really nice and a good way to catch up on things you might have missed.

Yup. Even better actually is their weekly Sirius XM 2 hour satellite radio shows they do every Thursdays here in North America. Unfortunately they are not for download or streaming but you can see their track listings on their Facebook page.

Ah, would love to have a radio show like that here.

 

Not this yera but a proper fucking TUNE:

 

 

No excuse for Monotony not having it on his list last year, he actually lives in Melbourne.

Whereabouts in France? Lovely country, used to go on holiday to Brittany all the time when I was a kid, and down to La Rochelle which is a beautiful place. Got any French music to reccommend?

I was in Paris.

 

Stromae (who is actually Belgian) was in high rotation on french radio and on NRJ which was always on TV in the gym I went to, along with Joyce Jonathan ("Ça ira"), Axel Tony ("J'avance"), Maude ("Love Not Money"), and Maître Gims ("Changer"). Whether I'd actually recommend anyone listen to any of the above is another matter.

Disappointing that this thread is having a hard time sticking with 2014.

 

For me it's this

AG Cook has put out a couple of insane bangers lately, properly hyperactive crazy pop, reminds me a bit of Sophie 'Bipp'.
