BBC Sound of 2011

I've been semi productive this morning, took care a few things school but not necessarily lab related and am about to head out of the door.

But I wanted to leave you with this year's Sound of 2011.

The long list follows:


  • James Blake
  • Anna Calvi
  • Daley
  • Esben & the Witch
  • Jessie J
  • Clare Maguire
  • Mona
  • The Naked & Famous
  • Nero
  • Jai Paul
  • The Vaccines
  • Warpaint
  • Jamie Woon
  • Wretch 32
  • Yuck
This year I'm not a fan of most on the list.

My top 3 favorite are:

Mona-"Listen to you love"

They're playing at The Rock Shop on Jan 12, I'm really hoping to catch them live!

The Naked and Famous "Young Blood"

And Warpaint, a California band who describe themselves as Ghettotech, don't think I've ever heard that term used before, but they do have an interesting though I wouldn't call it unique sound. I certainly see a bit of the XX in them.

In January the BBC will announce the top 5 and the winner, can't wait to see if I'm on par with the next list!
