The Round Up: January '16

THE ROUND UP: JANUARY '16

JANUARY '16


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: the late David Bowie's Blackstar, S.E. Rogie's Dead Men Don't Smoke Marijuana, Barry Adamson's Moss Side Story, Anderson .Paak's Malibu, the long-awaited LEVELZ mixtape, and the return of Massive Attack. 


CLICK ON A PIECE OF ARTWORK TO HEAR A TRACK FROM THAT RELEASE.
