Top tracks: There’s no catching Skynyrd!
6. Band Of Horses – Knock Knock This new song from the Seattle thoroughbreds will be included on upcoming new album Mirage Rock. The follow-up to 2010′s Infinite Arms, Mirage Rock is the first BOH record to be produced by Glyn Johns, who was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame this year in recognition of his work with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Faces, Eric Clapton and too many others to list.
7. Mystery – Raise Your Fist Mystery are a fresh-faced bunch of 14- and 15-year-old Aussies. (Yep, following in the fine tradition of AC/DC, they start them young Down Under.) And this really does sound like Angus and co squaring up to Twisted Sister in the short-trousered school playground. Fight!
