As 2014’s wave of new music comes to a close around Christmas, it offers bloggers like myself the chance to look back at some of the best new music we’ve heard this year, and also pay particular attention to the music that we (sometimes unforgivably) may have missed. Roo Panes’ Know Me Well is a great example of something exceptional that has only just tapped me on the shoulder, and I’m incredibly happy that it has. A haunting, heart-felt folk ballad, Know Me Well’s pastoral instrumentation (acoustic guitar, strings and vocals) are crisp, rich and inherently warming, an apt and admirable quality that makes it perfect listening material for a wintry Christmas Eve.
