Yes! The third and final part of the Contrast Podcast Festive Fifty is up, as voted by contributors and listeners of the Contrast Podcast! Head there now to listen to me gush on about Withered Hand – an introduction that was recorded when I was still deeply involved in those first few flushes of new music love. How high did it place though? You’ll have to go visit to find out!

You’ll also be able to find out what came in at #1. I don’t actually agree with the top track this year – it’s by a band that I’ve tried several times to get into but just can’t seem to ‘get’. Oh well. I’m sure there are plenty of people who would say that about my choice of this year’s best song!

Some of you may remember that my pick for the best song of 2009 was Withered Hand’s ‘Religious Songs’, which you can download here. I won’t leave you empty handed here though – check out ‘Cornflake’ from Good News below.
