Top 10 Albums of 2017

Another year in music is over. Last year I recounted my top 10 albums of the year, and it’s time to do it all over again. This year’s list was very tough, it’s been an absolutely amazing year for all genres of music, so many artists have released such mind blowing pieces of work! Here are the 10 I’ve chosen as the best of the best.

This year I tried not to simply focus on my 10 favourites, but on 10 that I truly believe are the best, whether this is overall, or means a complete album with 0 filler, or an album that’s defining it’s genre, these are all something special.

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 →
