Each year I like to compile my own end of year music list – albums I liked and so forth. Say what you like about reducing music to lists, but I like it as a way of reviewing the good music of the year, and a few people have even said they find the lists interesting and useful. Who knows? Anyway, previously I have posted them as Facebook ‘notes’ but those just don’t seem the optimal way of doing it, and having sat down to write this year’s list I find I have more to say than I have bothered to before. Hence I’m giving a blog a go – arriving at the party a good ten years too late, but what the hell. Initially I’m going to post the bits I’ve written about 2012 music, then I’ll see if other things crop up that I want to write about as I go along.

Thanks for reading!
