[Did 2011 belong to this lady? Picture Of Lana Del Rey, just, because]
Hola independent people of the interwebs!
How you doin?
So…. this is it. Is this it?
Your humble web monkey’s final post of the year – phew!
That 2011 – that was the year that was, and all that.
Featuring music from Scala & Kolacny Brothers (see NSFW video below).
And – in the interests of balance – a ‘Downton Abbey’ Christmas Special (whatever that is) on ITV on Christmas Day, 9pm.
(Oh my god – lord, what have i become?)
Whilst your humble web monkey was scrabbling around the base of the internet, scraping up End Of Year Charts manually, like a human – it turns out there’s this totally boss interweb site hovering above us, up in the sky - up ‘there’, some kind of nanobot cloud – that has techno-robotically-synthesised All End Of Year Charts 2011 known to man, metacritic-style (see, i *do* know what i’m talking about! Sometimes…)
Click the logolink above for more stats than is strictly good for a person. Ooof! It’s got every badger in the cosmos’ End Of Year Chart plus it does some kind of Nietzsche ‘Superman’ Chart Of Charts Chart.
PJ Harvey’s ‘Let England Shake’ is currently at No.1 – which is, like, not a [PIAS] distributed title, but, like, totally fair enough - Bon Iver, Girls, Tune-Yards, The Horrors, St Vincent, Adele, Wild Beasts, Shabazz Palaces, Fucked Up, Radiohead, Real Estate, Kurt Vile, Bjork, Wild Flag, Decemberists, Washed Out, War On Drugs, Gang Gang Dance, Anna Calvi, SBTRKT, Zomby, Destroyer, Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Other Lives, Bill Wells & Aiden Moffat, dEUS – all feature in there somewhere. Good on ‘em.

Your humble web monkey signing off…. Adieu for now – have a great xmas / hanukkah / pagan mid-winter fest / new year – and you take care out there, ya hear? PEACE x
