December 2018 Top 20

DJ Heretic December 4, 2018

Another year draws to a close, one last chart show to celebrate the stellar sounds 2018 has provided us. From 16 October to 1 December, we gathered votes from our listeners, and all the feedback we’ve received, and these are the standout tracks for Winter of 2018. More gorgeous jewels of shoegaze and dream pop you will find nowhere else… except maybe Bandcamp. Press play, or browse the collection, can’t lose either way!

19. Crown of Pity – Rather Be Nothing
18. Witch Watch – Answers Tomorrow
17. draag – Sorry (dispensa)
16. Failure – Heavy and Blind
15. Trillion – Drive Away
14. Film School – Crushin’
13. Why Bonnie – Stereo
12. Emma Ruth Rundle – Control
11. Lo! Peninsula – Another Divine Joke
10. Sleepwalk – Bumblebee

Our ginormous year-end charts land in January, as we look back on all that 2018 had to offer. It’s a bloody herculean task to complete, but it’s tradition, and we’d disappoint a lot of listeners if we failed in our mission to highlight the year’s standout tunes. So we won’t fail. Stay tuned, and remember: enjoy shoegaze responsibly.
