Renegader Tim Diggles compiles an annual list of his favourite songs for the year; here’s his selection for 2014:
For over 15 years I have made a CD for friends of music I’ve been listening to over the past year, very ingeniously called What Tim’s Been Listening To. I send it with their Christmas card and some of them enjoy it, perhaps others just sling it, but I enjoy doing it. The task is always hard, this year I began with nearly 150 tracks and edited those down to 20 to fit on a standard CD, so many favourites had to go and there are glaring omissions (where are the First Aid Kit and Leonard Cohen tracks!), but this just about fits the bill.
