Quite a year for Ms Long – 12 months of stuffing hip upstarts into Cardiff gig venues as Flux=Rad, a hand in the running of the annual Swn festival and finally news that she’ll be taking over from Bethan Elfyn as host of Radio 1′s Introducing show. Not that shabby.
Recorded music highlights of 2010:
Were from The National, Beach House, Lowed Dens and Swans.
Live music highlights of 2010:
Was possibly Demolished Thoughts at SXSW (especially getting punched in the face), and festival singalongs to The National at Latitude and Marina & The Diamonds at Reading.
What else did you enjoy this year?
This year I really enjoyed putting on gigs by bands like Savoir Adore, Harlem, Beach House, Abe Vigoda and Surfer Blood (to name a few)
2010 was… AWESOME.
2011 will be… all about Still Corners and the new Joy Formidable record.
