It's almost the end of 2012, which means everybody with a blog has been posting there favourite music from the year, myself included. Which makes this time of year the best time to discover some really great music, because, once again, it's been a really good year of music making.
The tenth episode of 'Mix Tape Radio On Folk Radio UK' is a 90 minute mix of some of my favourite albums / tunes. These 26 tracks are not necessarily my top 26 albums (in fact, the tracks do not come exclusively from albums and the reason there is 26 tracks is just because that is what worked out to make an on the dot 90 minutes), but it would not be inaccurate to say that at least 10 of my definitely top ten albums are in this mix (I think I'll post an actual top ten list in the next day or so).
I'm a bit biased, but I think it's a pretty solid 90 minutes and well worth checking out.
