121 Weyes Blood - Do You Need My Love 36
122 The Rolling Stones - Hate To See You Go 34
123 Kaleo - Way Down We Go 32
124 Meilyr Jones - How to Recognise a Work of Art 32
125 Billie Marten - Live 31
126 LVL UP - Spirit Was 31
127 Beware Of Darkness - Dope 20
128 Stereophonics - White Lies 17
129 Miike Snow - My Trigger 7
130 Anteros - Breakfast 0

First batch here we go~ Anteros unfortunately scores nothing, mainly due to the lack of Brett Butler votes though so we can give it an imaginary 30+ points~ (you should check it out, it's a catchy song). Elsewhere there's the newly crowned Welsh Music Prize winner Meilyr Jones, The Rolling Stones with a single from their big comeback album Blue & Lonesome, and a slow burning hit from Icelandic band Kaleo (following its countless appearances in tv shows/ads and whatnot)

'White Lies' is the only song I know from that batch! I was pleasantly surprised by how good it is.

115 Birdeatsbaby - Temple 39

118 Elohim - Sensations 38

Fellow Fifer King Creosote continues to do us proud, the charmingly upbeat single Wake Up To This takes its full 39 points from richie. Also in this batch: punk newcomers Creeper, and The Strumbellas with their breakthrough track "Spirits". Birdeatsbaby pop up once again this year, with a rather nice points tally courtesy of Severin!

Three of mine out on the first day, but not surprising as my definition of indie / alternative is very different to most folk on here.

Thanks for featuring King Creosote's video in that part of the rundown. Criminal that it didn't receive any further points from anyone!

Ditto Cate Le Bon.

Cheers to whoever gave Malcolm Middleton some points and I'm assuming Teenage Fanclub picked up a few too elsewhere.

At least Teleman featured in several BJ users charts, so fingers crossed it gets me one track in the top 100.

101 Car Seat Headrest - Fill In The Blank 71
102 Teenage Fanclub - I'm in Love 70
103 Bastille - Snakes 69
104 The Summer Set - Figure Me Out 66
105 Suede - What I'm Trying To Tell You 65
106 Jamie T - Robin Hood 57
107 White Lies - Take It Out On Me 54
108 Inheaven - Baby's Alright 53
109 Volbeat - The Devil's Bleeding Crown 52
110 Fitz And The Tantrums - Roll Up 50

YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE DEPRESSED. Car Seat Headrest's brilliant "Fill in the Blank" tops this final batch before the Top 100. Quite a few of The-BrightPlaces' nominations leave us here: including The Summer Set and album tracks from Jamie T & Bastille (those two still have singles to come of course). Suede are represented with "What I'm Trying to Tell You" from their very good Night Thoughts album (would've been nice to see Like Kids or Outsiders in the mix now i think about it!). White Lies also appear with the lead single from their fourth, they may be a bit under the radar now but they've still got a knack for a solid pop hook!

92 A. K. Paul - Landcruisin' 86
93 The Lumineers - Ophelia 86
94 Courteeners - The 17th 85

99 Highasakite - Someone Who'll Get It 78
100 Crystal Fighters - All Night 74

Crystal Fighters kick off the Top 100 with their light party jam All Night~ former Trifoski entry Great Good Fine Ok's "Take It Or Leave It" is also here- a fun song with a very fun dance video, Pupok's current entry from Bishop Briggs also shows up here. The Lumineers scraped past the finish line with a #1 album with recent effort Cleopatra, 'Ophelia' being the first taster from it. Towards the top end we have A. K. Paul, the equally enigmatic brother of Jai, and the infectious opener for 'I Remember', AlunaGeorge's Full Swing~

'Roll Up' is great, I remember it being played on plug.dj and sounded just as good as 'HandClap'. 'Take It Or Leave It' also another fave from these batches *.*

Yes!! I'd never heard it until yesterday otherwise I would have voted for it. Fitz and the Tantrums' back catalogue is excellent too, although not quite as catchy as 'Handclap' and 'Roll Up'.

I really like 'That's So Us' from that section! Allie X is a promising talent.
