Top Ten Albums

Chaleur Humaine by Christine and the Queens is the only new album I've properly listened to that came out in 2016. Mostly in this year of shock, horror and dismay I've turned to comfortable favourites like Out of Time, Blue and Fleetwood Mac's greatest hits to guide me through. BUT, there is something positive on the horizon...I'm so looking forward to maybe finding new music from Bon Iver, Conor Oberst and Leonard Cohen in my Christmas stocking. So no top ten from me, but an anticipation of a better year ahead x
