The 2024 Midpoint...


The 2024 Midpoint...

Whooah... We’re halfway there! We have hit the exact halfway point in 2024 so we are checking in to see how it’s all been sounding so far.

As 2024 is a leap year, we conveniently have an exact centerpoint with July 1st marking both 183 days before it and 183 days ahead of it in the year. So, this is that midpoint and we are mostly looking backwards at those 183 days that we have already ticked off and the excellent new releases that we have been enjoying. Regular readers will know all about many of these already, but with so much new music available, we wanted to make sure that you all knew about some of the less-ploughed furrows that could easily have been missed.

Do check out the playlist.
