It's been a good year, 2015. One of the things I have enjoyed is getting back to listening to music. Taking the time to listen to albums all the way through, friends recommending bands or making me mixes. It inspired me to digitize my CD collection (I'm about one quarter of the way through - great to have a winter project right?) - which has lead to me discovering some albums I love but had forgotten - like Al Jarreau - Glow, Gomez - Bring it On or Nitin Sawnhey - Prophesy. I ended up making mixes for friends as Christmas presents this year! Anyway, here's some of the music I picked up in 2015 that is carrying me into 2016. Music for the change in year, in no particular order ... I hope you enjoy and please beware there are explicit lyrics in some of the following. Enjoy what you like and skip what you don't.
John Grant - Pale Green Ghosts (Alternative)
Years and Years - Breathe (Dance / Electronica)
Chris Smither (Folk / Blues)
Frank Turner (Folk / Rock)
Kate Tempest (Hip Hop / Rap / Spoken Word)
Jake Bugg (Folk / Rock)
