Post your 5 favourite tracks, in any order, in a comment at the bottom of the page.
Welcome to our last Listening Post of 2012 – Team Freshnet’s way of helping artists try out new tunes on sympathetic strangers. We get sent a lot of great songs – and these are the 31 that Team Freshnet loved most this week. The ones that YOU like best will become our final Fresh Faves of the year next Monday, December 17th.
Becoming a Fresh Fave here doesn’t change an artist’s chances of airplay on my radio shows – which feature personal picks from a wide variety of sources. This is simply a community page where our readers can hear a bunch of great tunes, tell us their 5 favourites, and share their thoughts with the artists. Tips:
Dip into tracks at random, like channel hopping on TV.
Be as biased as you like: trust your own personal taste
If you hate what you hear, move on.
The only question is: do I like this – yes or no?
If you copy and paste from this list when posting your 5 faves it’s easier for us to count up afterwards…

ARTISTS: Obviously you’ll be tempted to tell all your fans & friends about being on this week’s Listening Post, but please don’t do that. This vote is about quality of music, not how many Facebook friends you have. After recent problems, we now instantly remove any artists who get their friends to come and vote for them, or any artist who gets more than one vote from the same household.
But hey – your music’s in this list because we loved it – chances are that other people will love it too. So why not spread the love around and tell us your own five favourite tracks by the other people here?
