Happy 2014! Song of The Year is…

2013-11-20 21.10.38Happy 20134 everyone! I hope everyone had a good start of 2014. It’s still a bit weird saying ‘2014’ instead of ‘2013’ but I’ll get used to it eventually.

2013 was a good year, where we got a glorious new album and UK / Germany tour. I hope 2014 can top it. It might be a bit much to ask for more new music, since the new album is only a couple of months old, but hopefully further touring (Europe? Australia? USA?) can spark a little life in this beautiful album that deserves even more attention than it has already received.

This is also clear, I can happily, report in the Song of the Year results for 2013. Thank you for voting everyone, it’s still fun to collect all your votes. I’ve decided to report the results in two parts: right now I’ll reveal the top songs, next week I’ll analyse some interesting stuff and your other answers. I’ve also decided to include some your stories in upcoming blog entries (I’ll be in touch to ask for permission about this).

But right now, let me reveal the results of this year’s voting. The result gives me great joy as I said, because the Ether Site Song of the Year is…


Yes, the “Turin Brakes channel Pink Floyd”-song proved most popular this year. A lot of songs received votes this year, including ALL We Were Here songs! It didn’t prove so lonely at the top this year, as the top 4 songs were all pretty close together. However, Blindsided Again is the clear winner. You can listen to it here.
