The Round Up: February '16

THE ROUND UP: FEBRUARY '16

FEBRUARY 2016


This is a selection of the albums, EPs and 12”s that we've had on repeat over the last month - the records we keep going back to. Some are discoveries of old, others are new releases, and a few are records we'd completely forgotten about. 

Of special note this month: Elliott Power's debut full-length; Lloyd Miller's 1968, Oriental Jazz; rumba compilation, ¡La Rumba Está Buena!; an LP on R&S from Nils Frahm's Nonkeen project; Fadoul's Al Zman Saib; and the return of Andrew Weatherall.
