1. Let’s Buy Happiness – Six Wolves

Six Wolves is so far and away my favourite song of 2011 that I wasn’t even going to bother doing a Top 20 list at all. Math-y guitar lines creep through the verses, gently weaving in and out of Sarah Hall’s wonderous lead vocal before the joyous chorus erupts, the guitars turn into waves of shimmery post-rock noise and the UK’s best new band is born. Everything they’ve released so far sounds perfect, but this one ever-so-slightly more perfect than the rest.

LBH feature in Drowned In Sound writer Dom Gourlay's "My Top 10 Live Shows of 2011"

We Were Promised Jetpacks / Let's Buy Happiness @ The Bodega, Nottingham. 06.12.11.
A cold Tuesday night in December might not be the most idyllic time to watch bands, yet the astounding performances from both We Were Promised Jetpacks and Let's Buy Happiness earned them a late place in the Top 10 at the expense of several household names. While sophomore record In The Pit Of The Stomach seems to have been criminally ignored in many places, We Were Promised Jetpacks incendiary mix of songs from this and their previous record These Four Walls brought the house down at the Bodega last week. Brimming with confidence - breakthrough single 'Quiet Little Voices' tossed away at the beginning of the set while new single 'Human Error' never got an airing - they've unflinchingly grown into one of the UK's most potent live acts. Newcastle's Let's Buy Happiness deserve a hearty mention too, having warmed the room beforehand with their quirky folk pop that recalls The Sundays, The Pop Guns and on dub-infused closer 'Crooks', the sound of Los Campesinos! covering Fugazi's 'Waiting Room'.
