Here come the “best of” lists for 2018, and two of the first we’ve seen for music come from Radio X in the UK … and both include Gang of Youths.
MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne made the station’s list of the best albums of 2018, while “Let Me Down Easy” is on the best songs of 2018 list. (Nevermind that LMDE was a single back in 2017; the rest of the world is still catching up and if Radio X wants to call it one of this year’s best songs, who are we to argue?)
Meanwhile, in Australia, Triple J radio has opened voting for its annual Hottest 100 list — where LMDE came in at #2 last year — and fans are doing whatever they can to vote for GOY even though the band didn’t release any new material this year. (The MTV Unplugged album apparently doesn’t count because it’s all previously-released songs? So I understand.)
