So, having complained that there are in fact bugger all ‘ones to watch 2012′, I have been pointed in the direction of Red Kite. They release first single Montreal as a very limited edition on Dec 5, and if it’s anything to go by, a large part of 2012 might well be theirs.
So, after hours of listening to ‘ones to watch 2012′ tracks posted on Soundcloud by various PRs and record labels, the only one which really did it for me was Lana Del Ray’s Video Games, which has been kicking around for months now. Still, it is good. Like her description of herself as ‘the gangsta Nacy Sinatra’ too.

Welcome to dangennoe.net the centre of my online digital whatever.
