The Anti-Hit List

John Sakamoto has been writing a weekly column in various Toronto newspapers for years now called ‘The Anti-Hit List’ (it is now in the Toronto Star:  list of this and his other light-as-a-feather – beautox! – eclectic columns here; most recent Anti-Hit List here; and example of an earlier version here)  It is a top-ten list of new popular music of a type which doesn’t make big station radio playlists.  He finds all kinds of obscure stuff, often identifying up-and-coming artists before they become widely known, and he has good taste.
