Music: Pass The Mic: Record Labels and Artists on 2011


Another year, and another Pass The Mic feature. As has become SPB tradition, we turn the tables on the music industry and ask labels, bands and other key figures about their experience of the past year, including favourite albums, bands, predictions and more. We have over 50 participants in this year's feature, including names like Brendan Kelly, Franz Nicolay, The Dwarves, Vinnie Fiorello, Shai Hulud,  Banner Pilot and Toby Jeg. Read on or use the handy dropdown picker below to navigate through the past 12 months as we pass the mic.
