I see this and want to go loose my shot at a rave…
The August Greene album showed up on a few beat of 2018 lists and I fully missed it. The last week i’ve Been making up for lost time and am loving it!
As 2018 draws to a close I present to you my yearly round up. First and foremost we have been picking music for each other for over 6 years which is crazy; all of our lives have gone through changes but month after month we present each other with fantastic music. On that note I really struggled this year with albums on a whole; not only what we each brought to the table on a monthly basis but also finding end to end albums that I loved. There was some fantastic music in 2018 but more from a singles aspect than albums in my opinion. Amongst allot of drab albums there were some fantastic stand outs for me though. Here are my favourite albums and singles of 2018 in no particular order.

Leon Bridges – Good Thing
Sean Price – Imperious Rex

Over to you brothers…
I loved the Rhye debut but then lost touch with them … Spotify told me to listen to this, so I did. And I love it. I don’t know the original but this track is a beauty all in it’s own right. Oooof. I am pretty blown away by this one.
I don’t hear nearly enough music like this.
I. Love. This.
If you know. You know …You know?
Back in the day (’84) they used to make tracks like this …
