This be mine:

1 Haiku Salut
2 The Spook School
3 Thee AHs
4 John Williams
5 Deerful
6 Oh Peas!
7 Tacocat
8 The Pastels
9 Kardemimmit
10 Colour Me Wednesday
11 Tiny Fireflies
12 Whatevers
13 Jlin
14 The Tuts
15 Jessica & The Fletchers
16 The Popguns
17 The Middle Ones
18 Shirley & Dolly Collins
19 Humousexual
20 the receptionists

with all the usual caveats about non-digital (otherwise it would be mostly bands featuring Alasdair Roberts). And yes I have listened to Star Wars soundtracks quite excessively this year!

The most surprising entry to me is Whatevers (not the ones from Leeds) who I only found out about about a month or so ago but must be really good if I listened to them that much in such a short space of time (they are!).

The Doubleclicks is a great band name. I might go and listen to them just for the name.

Go on then, here's mine...

1 Alasdair Roberts and James Green
2 The Magnetic North
3 The Orchids
4 Songs for Walter
5 Deerful
6 July Skies
7 The Understudies
8 Frankie Machine
9 Robberie
10 Wintergreen
11 Helen Love
12 Saloon
13 Tilly and the Wall
14 Withered Hand
15 Dear Nora
16 James Figurine
17 The Nannas
18 Colleen Green
19 ABBA
20= Figurine
20= Peach Kelli Pop

I should probably try and be more adventurous.

They've made it significantly more difficult to delete scrobbles, and as someone who often falls asleep with music on and ends up with dozens (sometimes hundreds) of unwanted scrobbles that I have to delete en masse, I am irritated.

Or, to put it another way, it hasn't.

If you hover your mousey pointer thing next to the 'buy' whatsit, three vertical dots will appear as if from nowhere and if you click on those you can delete an errant scrobble, I've just noticed

Here's a handy visual thingymajigg that may make it a bit clearer

Thanks linus. It seems it's different on various devices and browsers. This is from an iphone

but it doesn't work on an ipad or firefox on my desktop.

Edit: I've worked out how to do it on the ipad now.

Useful to know, thanks. I like to delete scrobbles when I'm listening to my own stuff.

MusicBrainz recently got a new feature to allow people to specify more-granular locations for artists, so once this data is a bit better populated it should be possible to show artists by city on a map.
Well, I finally found the time to finish this up. https://www.mavit.org.uk/music-scene-map/
