The Round Up 2017
2017 was another global shambles, wasn't it?
Well, at least we had a huge amount of phenomenal new music to carry us through. At LT, we also had the pleasure of making loads of new friends last year, connecting with a host of like-minded people who are all doing incredible things.
Working with Brainchild and Dimensions festivals, relaunching Theo Kotz's Soon To Be Innocent Fun feature, interviewing Ashley Henry, Wojtek Mazolewski and Joe Armon-Jones and Maxwell Owen, the brains behind one of the stand out releases of the year, Idiom, sharing premieres from the likes of Footshooter, Thidius and Alabaster de Plume and running a series of eclectic guest playlists from artists as diverse as Miryam Solomon, Leafcutter John and Dayme Arocena... we've had a lot of fun, discovering and sharing new music at every turn.
With that in mind, what follows is a non-hierarchical selection of some of 2017's exceptional musical offerings. We've also included older releases that we discovered or rediscovered throughout last year. We hope you find something you like.
