We can reveal AlunaGeorge have been the most written about artist on UK music blogs this year - thanks to data compiled by Hype Machine.

After looking at 137-sites ranging from 20 Jazz Funk Greats to The Von Pip Musical Express, Abeano and Too Many Sebastians, the Your Drums, Your Love duo have come out top.

They've of course also made the long list for BBC Sound of 2013, and in total four of the acts on that list also feature as one of the most blogged artists in the UK this year - Haim, Savages and Chvrches with AlunaGeorge - showing the importance and significance blogs have in music today, as well as demonstrating if you want to find some new music searching some of these sites is not a bad idea.

Listen to George Reid talking about this accolade, blogging more generally, and other ways he discovers new music.

Check out the full list below and if you aren't familiar with some of these artists, why don't you listen to the show again, or check out this Spotify playlist.
