It’s the great Human Pleasure radio end of 2013 list thing….

I had hoped to have this out before year end…but not a chance. We’re only a little radio show on the underside of a big world so I am forever in debt to the fine labels, bands and individuals that supplied the show with their releases though another year.

There was quite a strong batch of releases from Australia and New Zealand this year, in fact the aussie rulz” show was most replayed of all the shows this year. Listen again here.. 

So after careful consideration, filtered down from 1950 releases and in those about 10004 tracks, as follows are the best releases to our ears, in alphabetical order….it’s a bit longer this year.
