As you may have noticed last week we popped up our favourite bands of the year so far after BBC 6Music asked us to cast our opinions in the build up to their Music Blog Zeitgeist show on Sunday in partnership with Hype Machine. We picked El-P as our top artists of the year so far. We'll have to see how different our opinions will be at the end of the year but now that the show has aired we have the top talked about artists of the year so far. Topping the list was Grimes and below you can hear a chat she had with 6Music regarding blogs and how she uses them and avoids reading about herself on the net. Check it out and hit up the BBC site to see the top list. Any surprises?
