August: Top 20 (Part 2)

This is August's Top 20 Part 2 where I run down the last 10 of my top 20 songs of the month. From 10 to 1 - the biggest song of the month for me. Will you agree? ...

10. Bon Iver - Holocene
Holocene reminds me of twilight soundtrack a little. And in a good way. It is beautifully calm and intricate and just pure joy.

August: Top 20 (Part 1)

Welcome again to August's Top 20 - where I count down my Top 20 songs from this last month. Part 2 will be coming shortly, so make sure to have a look at what made my number one of the month.

20. Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle
Since I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose, I've become a bit of a fan of Bombay Bicycle Club, keeping an eye on what they're up to. I haven't been too fussed with their recent stuff but Shuffle is... marvellous.

Marina and the Diamonds - Radioactive
Today's 'Tune of the Day' is hot off the press as it had its first play on the radio just this morning. 
But already I can see Marina and the Diamonds new single being a bigger success than her last work. Which is why many are criticising her for going down a more commercial route. 
Commercial or not (which it is) it's quite catchy and I think will get played quite a bit for the rest of the year as it is released on October 3rd.
What do you think?
