Blogsound of 2014 – The Longlist

Submitted by / 9 years ago / Music News

Blogsound 2014

This year we once again joined together with 59 other UK based blogs to decide who we think represents the best in emerging music. Whilst we were fairly honest about our choice of nominations in BANKS, Lemaitre, and JMSN, only one of those made the eventual 15 strong longlist.

In fact we were only familiar with 5 of the 15 acts, which is rather exciting as has it left with a nice number of new artists to get familiar with. Why not join me by streaming tracks from all of the longlisted acts below:

p.s. The winning act and close runners up will be revealed on the 2nd of January in a short list of three.
