2016 is just about half-over, the last six months having rocketed past with the velocity of a drumstick that the guy on the stool wasn't gripping properly. Today, I thought I'd share ten of my favourite albums from the first half of the year, so that's exactly what I've done: find them all listed below (in alphabetical order, just in case these turn out to be the best albums of 2016 overall - I want to preserve a little bit of mystery for my end-of-year list!)
Adore Life - Savages
"Thrillingly confrontational...almost scarily compelling"
Standout Tracks: Evil // I Need Something New // T.I.W.Y.G.

Amen & Goodbye - Yeasayer
"A colourful cornucopia of bouncy pop and blissed-out psychedelia"
Standout Tracks: Silly Me // Dead Sea Scrolls // Cold Night
