Veronica Falls Take The Last #1 Of The Year


Jaunty London band, Veronica Falls tops the loop’s last edition of 2011 with ‘Right Side Of My Brain’, from their excellent, self-titled debut. The band also hit the blogs this week with a mixtape their bass player Marion Herbain has compiled and given away through Soundcloud. Later on this week we’ll wrap our chart for the year with a special edition looking at tracks anticipating the most interesting new releases for 2012, before giving way to our Best Of 2011 Special during the whole of December.

Cults; Amy Winehouse; Boris and the new project by minimal house superstar Nicolas Jaar, Darkside, are the highest entries. New Downloads are provided by Kingdom; Pinemarten; D/R/U/G/S and Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt.
