Ok, I think there has been quite a lot of new and good music, by new and also stablished artists, and enough to suit all tastes this year but there were three albums which did standout for me. They were, in no particular order:
Merrie Land by The Good, The Bad and The Queen,
Heaven & Earth by Kwasi Washington
and Collapse by Aphex Twin
So, what albums put a smile on your face this year?
