2016. The Halfway Line.

As waning gibbous moves into waning crescent, June draws to an end and we've reached the mid way point of 2016. These last few days we've been looking backwards at all of the releases we've carried so far in 2016 and picked out fifty of our favourites. So far.

Purely in alphabetical order only, fifty albums released between January and June 2016 that we have really liked playing in the shop, the office, in cars and even on iPhones. If you read our newsletter than you'll likely know all about them already, but for those of you who skim and to those of you new to this, here are fifty things we highly recommend you go and listen to.
