10 favourite albums of 2016


As 2016 comes to an end, it’s time to look back at the new music I loved this year in vaguely ranked order for dramatic effect. The first place was a no-brainer and goes to one of my all-time favourite artists, Marissa Nadler and her unbelievably beautiful 7th album ‘Strangers’.

1. Marissa Nadler – Strangers

So that’s it, it’s been a seriously amazing year for new music and those are the records that were able to bring a lot of light in to a bizarre year. Hopefully you’ve found something new that you like here! We’re looking forward to what next year will bring us!
