New Music of the Month – January 2017

January has been a good month in the music world, we’re off to a good start in 2017. Let’s hope it continues you this way, 2016 was bloody incredible, 2017 can you top it?!

Here are some of my favourite tracks released this month, or blowing up this month:

Heavy Soul – You Me At Six

One of the first bands I ever saw live was You Me At Six, back when they supported Paramore in 2009. Those were the days.

Their new album ‘Night People’ just dropped, and I’m in love with this song. Great indie song coupled with a, somehow beach-y, guitar riff. I’m all ears for this. Continue Reading →

Top 10 Albums of 2016

The year is coming to a close, so it’s time to look back at some of the amazing albums we were blessed with this year. 2016 was a cracking year in music, here are 10 of my favourite albums that were released this year. These are in no particular order, don’t make me choose a favourite. Don’t be that cruel.

Christine and the Queens – Chaleur Humaine

This was originally released in France in 2014, but didn’t make it’s way over the English channel, or onto my Spotify, until this year.

Chaleur Humaine is a strong album, lacking any filler, with lyrics intertwining two languages, heavy beats and soft flows. Chaleur Humaine feels appropriate for all times of day, for all moods. I could dance to ‘Tilted’ in a club, listen to ‘Science Fiction’ in the gym, but most of all I jam out to it in the house.

Lead single: ‘Tilted’

Stream on Spotify.

Buy on iTunes.

More after the jump.

My Year in Music

It’s time for all of that year end type stuff, and I’m kicking off with a short post on the music I’ve listened to this year. This isn’t my favourite, or what I consider the best, these are the stats Spotify e-mailed to me on my music consumption throughout the year.

Last year I made a post on my Spotify Year in Music, sadly they axed this featured for 2016. Everyone has been given a customised playlist (Spotify Wrapped), although today everyone should be receiving an e-mail containing some more stats! This seems to be in response to many, including myself, complaining about this year end feature compared to last’s.

This e-mail of stats isn’t much, but I’ll take it.
