Four tracks from this year that made me think, ‘goddamn, that’s beautiful, I want to play that again and again’. Sadly only the Laura Marling one has an ‘official’ video. It is fab though.
Restacks by Bon Iver
Jesus wept, how gorgeous is this song?! Good album too, though nothing else touches this.
Clowns by Goldfrapp
Its like Kate Bush or the Cocteau Twins at their best (with really silly lyrics).
Starlings by Elbow
Some of the finest lyrics I’ve ever heard and a startlingly original arrangement.
Go Slowly by Radiohead
Thom Yorke’s vocals on this - bloody hell!
Ghosts by Laura Marling
From her debut Alas, I Cannot Swim
