The Blog Sound Of 2012!

5 Dec

Hello, hope you’re well.

Underclassed Idle Ideas has been a bit hit and miss of late. Yes we’re conducting our own awards for 2011’s best music (see right hand side) – but on the new music front we haven’t brought you much in the last month or so.

However, this is because we’ve been busy behind the scenes arranging an even better year. Can we top such a year of good music that was 2011? That remains to be seen, so here’s to 2012.

Anyway, I’m procrastinating slightly because here’s our first piece of excellent news.

Andy Von Pip from the Von Pip Music Express asked the world of music’s top bloggers to provide an alternative to the BBC Sound list that they concoct for the start of every year. Underclassed Idle Ideas was very privileged to be part of such an event.

Bloggers were asked to submit 5 bands each that they thought would make it big in 2012. This very long list was shortened down to a long list of 15. On this list is one of the bands we submitted in the form of Cardiff band Houdini Dax. But the list contains 12 fine choices, none of which we disagree with.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to THE SOUND OF 2012!
