I’ve listened to a lot of music in the past twelve months. More than I usually do, so this year’s selection of music highlights those albums and single tracks that have just stuck with me. The albums are full long-players and not just a collection of individual tracks in general although there are always exceptions.

Best Videos

Sometimes, the videos just make the music.
