For some readers the 1st will be drawing to a close, for others it won’t yet have started. Where-ever you are on the cycle, thank you for taking the time to read the site and listen to the music and hope you enjoy the year ahead.
Mordred from the USA theoretically should not be being featured, but they are…..
…The strap line as prominently displayed on the website states – The best new bands from around the world. Mordred date back to 1984. However a twenty year break between the last single and The Baroness which comes out on the 3rd February makes this a band that is a new entity for many readers.
For those of longer tooth who do know Mordred – hopefully you will also recall the section – Essential Indie Bands on the old URL and I trust you will all forgive me the occasional indulgence outside the core scope in the search for music that adds value to the texture of life and why Slint continues to appear in the New Year Ninety year after year – a chart that is formulated by the readers through the various URLS.
Without the bands who take the time to create the music none of this would be possible. As is always the case with the New Year Ninety Chart – some of the bands featured in the chart have now disbanded – thank you for your legacy.
The New Year Ninety Chart once again showcases a diversity of music styles reflective of the varied interests of the readers of the website who make it all worthwhile and I wish you all the best for 2014.
