The August Playlist: Vol. 2



 THE past couple of weeks has seen many great albums…

arrive- many more are coming up; it is an exciting time for music. After the nominations for the Mercury Prize was announced: many have been speculating who will win and which artists are in the running. Not to distract ourselves from the other wonderful albums around: it is worth having a look at the musicians that have, and will be defining, the month of August. In the second playlist: I have been collating cuts from August’s albums; those we can look forward to in the coming days – ending with a little sneak ahead to September…

Such a banquet and feast of great music: September promises even more treasures and wonder. I shall keep you informed of any updates but have a look at the playlist and any I have missed; let me know and I will add them on. It is great to watch some incredible music drop and delight: 2016 has been a magnificent year for mainstream music and there is no slowing in sight.
