Nigel Clark (Dodgy) Top 10 Tracks from 2011 (Dodgy Advent Calender)

What tunes from now and then that have been rocking Nigel from Dodgy's world in 2011
01. OBSERVATORY CREST - Captain Beefheart

Putting this list together, it's the anniversary (17th Dec) of the Captain leaving us but he and the magic band left us with some of the most amazing music.


02.HELPLESSNESS BLUES - Fleet Foxes
Fleet foxes, with the new album this year this was the first single.
Such a talented band of musicians with voices of angels.

03 EVERYDAY PEOPLE/DANCE TO THE MUSIC MEDLEY - Sly And The Family Stone
Had these on my I pod since I brought it. I rarely skip these tracks.
Probably the funkiest band ever And you get 2 for 1 on the video

04. GUIDING LIGHT - Television (album Marquee Moon)
Another great band, hard to pick a track off the album because they are all great. I chose this one because it's not the most obvious but a great track all the same

05. I WILL TAKE YOU THERE - Harry Nilsson
Just a beautiful song, Simple but true.
The Beatles loved Harry, this explains why.
06. WALKABOUT - Atlas Sound (ft. Panda Bear)
Bradford cox the singer from deerhunter. A real feel good track from the Logos album released a couple of years ago featuring Noah Lennox (a.k.a. Panda Bear) from Animal Collective .

07. RED LIGHTS -  Holy Fuck
Saw holy fuck live this year. Four guys making this sound live, Awesomeness

08. WOMAN, WHEN I'VE RAISED HELL - Josh T Pearson
An album I bought and paid for this year. Such an emotional rollercoaster, but utterly engaging. Just pick the right time to listen


09. COLOR ON THE WALLS (DON'T STOP) - Foster The People‏
Heard these first on Dermot O'Leary's radio show; they did a cover of heart of gold and I had heard pumped up kids on the TV ad
Goes without saying that they are going to be a big band. Just hope they can keep making good pop music

10.CROSSEYED AND PAINLESS live (Stop Making Sense) - Talking Heads
This will forever be my fave talking heads track. Get the studio album version, it's amazing

AND A BONUS TRACK - came to me just after the 10
MARIE - Willie Nelson/Townes Van Zandt 
Just listen to this. So much honesty, emotion and experience. Just beautiful

That's all for now... looking forward to 2012
