Top Albums/EP’s of 2016

December 13th, 2016

I’ve had a lot of time to listen to a ton of new music this year. Having been a freelance photographer at the beginning of the year, I would spend whole days buried away editing shoots and listening to music. The second half of the year has been spent travelling, so there’s been lots of plane/train/bus rides with time to kill, and in that time I’ve found some amazing new bands and albums. The Hotelier’s ‘Goodness’ comes top by a mile. It’s a piece of art. It’s beautifully written and produced and has some of the most creative rock songs I’ve heard in quite some time. And then, Young In The City come top of my EP list. Basically I love everything and anything Noah Gundersen comes out with. I’ve probably forgotten a bunch of albums, or some 2016 albums will grow on me.

“so fragile are bodies, so concave, work in self-destructive ways”

One of my favourite bands live last night in Vancouver. They give me so many chills.
