Top Tracks of 2012 – 10 to 6

So we’re continuing our rundown of the Top Tracks of 2012 according to SGTMT.

Today we’ve reached the top 10. This lot caused quite a stir at SGTMT HQ but not as much as our top 5, that will arrive shortly. Here we go:

The tunes, the drums, and the guitar that sounded like a swarm of bees attacking a tank. Just pure beauty.

Every now and again something arrives that is so sublimely perfect that all my hard and fast rules no longer apply, the precedents are broken and I get all gibberish and oddly sweaty. Ms Mr are ‘that’ band. Just let Ms Mr single Hurricane spin around a few times and you’ll soon agree – genius in digital form.

No. 8 – Mystery JetsSomeone Purer

Untitled We said:
This sublimely beautiful track deals with issues of fear, pain, rejection, sin and comes up with the musical 42, the answer – Rock and Roll. Right then. Problem solved.

No. 6 – HaertsWings

Cleaning is always best performed with some musical accompaniment. And today the tune crackling on the SGTMT Gramophone is the gorgeous gold nectar of Wings by HAERTS. If music were a cleaning product this would be Fairy Liquid. It gets the job done whilst being gentle on the ears, soothing to the soul and down right super-fantastic.

We’ll hit the top 5 soon. Bear with us.
