Here you go, have a list of my favourite listening material from stuff that was out this year:
M83 - Fantasy [if pushed, I'd say this is my favourite album this year]
And some stuff, musical or not, that I also enjoyed this year:
-Aston Villa FC
-St. Pauli being top of Bundesliga 2
-finally getting a CD copy of Computer World by Kraftwerk after a hard-drive crash lost my old copy, and discovering that it's now more valuable than gold or something?
-Helensburgh, Scotland in the sun
-Discovering that if you're cold, you can just go to bed really early and it's fine.
-That Garth Marenghi book
-These videos of a guy racing marbles and getting a really over the top american to commentate on it like it's the superbowl.
