Jump to navigation Jump to search

The annual MMI Listeners' Picks poll aims to establish the top favourite releases of the year among the weekly Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast listeners.

A list of music from Maltese recording artists released in 2014 was compiled by Toni Sant for his ninth annual MMI Listeners' Picks poll. This is not a fully comprehensive list of 2014 releases; Toni Sant has always maintained, through his podcast and blog, that he is somewhat selective - but the scope has always been to include as many titles as possible at the nomination stage.


Here is the list of nominations for 2014.
