Doccortex's Festive Fifty 2014 (30-21)

30. Saira Khan - Dachi Wallya

Gorgeous slice of bhangra from the Beginner's Guide compilation. 

Another of her offerings.

29. SEMARGL - Credo Revolution (Zardonic Remix)

Death metal meets dance remix from the man in the mask.

28. Adora _Save Yourself

Lovely slice of Paramore-esque pop rock.

27. The Soft Pack - Second Look

Low key, slow-burning indie from the San Diego throwbacks.

26. Marisa Medina - No Te Acuerdas De Mí

Tacky but brilliant Spanish 60's action from the 'Chicas!' compilation.

25. Terry Lynn - Streetlife [Wildlife! Mix]

Classy Jamaican flavoured dance from the underrated Ms. Lynn.

24. Okkervil River - Plus Ones

Standard issue number from festive fifty folk stalwarts.

23. Jenny Lewis - Late Bloomer

Glorious yodel-fest from the lovely but hard to pin down genre-wise songstress.

22. Savages - Shut Up

Sounds like Siouxsie but somehow takes the format forward. Lovely drumming too.

21.  Lindi Ortega - Murder of Crows

Slick little gem from the League 1 Country & Western diva.

  1. Here we go with the next set then:
    30. Saira Khan - I've really enjoyed all of the bhangra stuff this year and this one is very pleasant - 6/10
    29. SEMARGL - Seedy video but a great song especially when turned up loud - 7/10
    28. Adora - In a completely predictable fashion I hated this. Most of the time singers perform without an accent. Here, her cloying Disney-esque accent makes me vomit up my spleen - 1/10
    27. The Soft Pack - Standard indie stuff - 4/10
    26. Marisa Medina - Just as with old films, old songs have a charm that is hard to replicate using modern tech - 5/10
    25. Terry Lynn - Not very keen on this one, the verse is okay but the chorus grates - 3/10
    24. Okkervil River - I can't even remember listening to this it's so standard - 2/10
    23. Jenny Lewis - You can't beat a good yodel - 4/10
    22. Savages - I don't like Siouxsie and the Banshees so these had no hope - 2/10
    21. Lindi Ortega - Listenable but not one of my favourites - 3/10

    Not the greatest ten for me then, but there were still a respectable three likes.
