END OF YEAR LIST 2015

So it’s been 1 year, 12 months, 365 days, 8760 hours, 525,600 minutes, 31,536,000 seconds since thisyearinmusic’s last New Year’s (Dis)Honour list. The whole point of end-of-year-lists is to showcase things that the writer(s) have enjoyed and you, my dear reader, might have missed all the while showing themselves to be much more knowledgably and interesting than you are.

 

 

We would like to think that thisyearinmusic is different and we generally try and showcase things that have touched us and defined what 2015 was about, but sadly we’re just as bad as all the others, and this post is just an example of that. Last year’s list was ungainly and bloated, so we’ve tried to cut it down to the bare bones. We won’t be handing out prizes for art direction, production and such, but instead we’ll give you Album and Song of the year, and people to watch out for this year. We aren’t even going to waffle on for ages about why these songs are good and better than millions of over songs released this year, but we will say that each captured the feeling and mood of the year perfectly.

    So, apart from Courtney and Kamasi I’ve never heard of any of this. Despite all my listening. Clearly I will have to up my game!
