I’m a St. Albans based music enthusiast and relatively tall person. I’ve a fairly eclectic taste, but exploring new music from independent and emerging artists is something I especially enjoy, which is how I came across Fresh on the Net in the first place.
Additionally I’m a keen consumer of radio and vinyl, and am in charge of beards (& music) at Alternative Friday. I can also be found sharing more impressive new music on Twitter, Spotify, and Soundcloud.

  1. Lovely Job Jim!

    I will be doing my own ‘Vox 10’ of 2014 but I can assure you that we have serious crossover on the Soundcloud list my friend :-)

    Just had to mention that the youthful Dr Wynne of music has this new video out for ‘Post Party Confusion’ and he wants you to share it!

    We can but obey!

    I think it’s been another excellent year for music from newer / independent / unsigned artists, and the playlists could have been much longer but I didn’t want to make it too lengthy for listeners. Just some of those who I’d have added if it had been longer include:

    THE INKHEARTS
    LOST WINTER
    SHY NATURE
    EMIL FRIIS
    EMPIRE AFFAIR
    RIVAL STATE
    MOURNING BIRDS

    I’d love to hear what your favourite (new / independent / unsigned) tracks of the year have been, so please let everyone here know the tracks from 2014 that have been your highlights.

    Thanks
