well, here it is – the best of 2005 courtesy of the guys at Les Inrocks. funny to see how strong the uk focus is over here on the continent. hard to pick stand-outs as it really is a good compilation but for me have to be anthony and the johnsons, vitalic (he that was so good at bestival) and, dare i say it, franz ferdinand.
enjoy. (will add the tracklisting if i can find it online – my powers of search in the french medium are severely limited).
