It’s Competition Time

Yes, popkids, it’s the annual Speakers Push Air competition. Each December I post my Albums Of The Year chart (it’s a Top 25 this year- ironically because there’s too much good stuff to do a top 30 that doesn’t hurt my brain). It starts next week on Wednesday December 7th.

All you have to do is guess what album will be number one. One guess each, and whoever gets closest wins a disc full of the very best music of the year and whatever other mixes and stuff that will fit. Last year Pete Hart guessed the actual number one (Buried Behind The Barn by Slim Cessna’s Auto Club), but I think this year is going to be harder. Mainly because I don’t even know what it is myself yet. I’ll be posting a tune a day up to NYE.

Message me your guess via Twitter or Facebook or the comments box right here.

Need your entries by December 7th

My guess, having seen a handful of these end of year 2012 lists, is Thee Faction’s Up The Workers.

number 1 is either going to be The Horrors or Nicola Roberts.

I love it when you get all masterful.

I’ll have Singing Adams then seeing as I’m still playing it on a pretty much daily basis.

Or that “A Winged Victory for the Sullen” thing… Hmmm.
