Like you can see, not many record this year. Obviously it was a tough year for us, with a chronical lack of money. But to be fair, it was either a really interresting years. Execpt for Golden Grrrls, Divorce and Muscule Of Joy (and the rest of Nightschool), not a lot of good records were out this years. And most of stuffs I have been listening, outside of the Tasteles Squad (Death In June, Current 93, Derniere Volonte and Sol Invictus) been found in such wonderful blog like Toys & Technics, The Cottage Of Electric Hell, Holy Warbles (RIP), Ghost Capital. So a lots of fucked up world music, weird pop librairies, DIY electronics, various radiophonics and a few early XX century/post-impressionist music. The side effect of digging too far into Trunks, Sublime Frequencies and Ghost Box.

Also lots of Tumblr music, stuffs like the beautiful retro cyber goth witchian ballad △AIMON, the Afro-American Stereolab-like Jet Age Of Tomorrow, the WH Uffie HVCCI GVCCI, the wizards of doom post Berlin School Silver Strains, the sick post rave †‡†'s Ghetto Ass Witch, the post-Dubstep ▲NGST (and most of Tundra's records actually), the space disco Moroder style Stalllengrad, some stuffs from ODDOT are also worth checking.

For the rest (after all, a year is looooong!) a massive rediscovery of Coil and Uncle Sleasy (RIP again, mate) and his moving last project, the slow, spiritual and touching The Threshold HouseBoys Choir. YM

I must say that Vivian Girls did a great year 2011. Their album Share The Joy is amazing! I saw them live once during the year in Glasgow and did a interview with Cassie Ramone (featured in the latest zine). As well they released the 7" I heard you say which include one of my fav songs I won´t be long. Otherwise I really enjoyed the Glasgow scene with bands like Gummy Stumps, Palms and Golden Grrrls. Nightschool Records have done some great releases as well. And not to forget, the great Ian Svenonius and the chain gang. DI

This list will be updated....
