most played 2012

for bottle rocket, 2012 was a year of change (in that we moved from saturdays to fridays) and stubborn stasis (in that our playlists remain resistant to modernisation...).

here's a top 30 of the acts we most frequently reached for in the last 12 months. the order is a little arbitrary, but that's ok; it's just for fun!

acts from last year's list to drop out this time around include surfer blood, the radio dept, depeche mode, pulp and erstwhile top-10-er weezer... 'wh-wh-what?!' i hear you cry. 'well who the devil's replaced them then'? the answer is: this lot...
