Favourite LPs of 2016 So Far


Here we are again, the mid-point of another year. It’s always a good time to take stock of the albums that have been released in the last six months, review the long list of records we’ve heard and dissed or praised. We’re always listening to a wide range of styles here at DS but from looking at this particular list it seems we’ve been embracing plenty of darker themed and melancholic music this year. Here, in vague but noncommittal order, is a selection of the best albums we’ve heard so far in 2016.
