So far in 2016, we've had incredible albums from:
David Bowie, Radiohead, Villages, Bloc Party, James Blake, Kanye West, Drake, The Last Shadow Puppets, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar.
I've also been revisiting:
Gabrielle Aplin's Light Up The Dark and Tame Impala's Currents.
One further go to playlist that I've been utilising is Orla Gartland's "amazing songwriting// sad songs" https://play.spotify.com/user/orlagartlandofficial/playlist/3YJIqujgs3TUhtX8xHHauI
With rumoured returns of Arctic Monkeys, an album from The Temper Trap to look forwards to, and Jake Bugg's third studio album being released in June,
there is no shortage of fresh music around.
Reminiscent of Paranoid Android and In Rainbows, Radiohead’s most recent album is a beautiful blend of electronic and acoustic orchestral rock. It requires a few listens and definitely stands best as a slow-burning entire album.
Desert Island Disk- Beautifully acoustic with delicate turns in the guitar riff. The line ‘different types of love’ seems to capture the essence of the album.
Present Tense- The Latin vibe in this track sets it apart from the rest. The lyrics are more prominent and many fans will welcome the return of acoustic intricacy.
The Numbers- The repeated haunting guitar chords in this track make it addictive. Probably the best struck as a stand alone.
Featuring a culmination of very old Radiohead songs, technique and minor chord progressions Radiohead have developed over the years, this album up certainly has a wow factor.
