Festive 50: the next ten are here

isitAnd the answer to the album cover question is: No, not yet. We’re only on numbers 40 to 31. These have now been added to the Festive 50. Again it’s dominated by British bands and by two British labels, both artist managed, which is very definitely the shape of the present and likely to be the shape of the future, too.

Huge thank-yous to Dave Stapleton of Edition Records and Michael Janisch of Whirlwind Recordings for spreading so much musical joy in 2012, and here’s wishing them an even stronger 2013.
