MUSIC: January 2018 So Far

January 11, 2018 - Joel Clyne

So I’ve skipped the first week of January because sod all is released in the first week so this is sort of a combination from mid-December through to 11th January.

Playlist below will be added to as the month progresses and hopefully this’ll be a weekly feature but I’m not guaranteeing anything because I’m as flaky as it comes with blog posts / podcasts etc.

Anyway, the highlight so far is the Kendrick Lamar and SZA track. Both had blinding 2017’s and this single released is a belter. Along with that, the James Blake track Vincent is lovely too. Very very mellow but his voice sounds as good as ever. More of this please James.

Big news this week is the live return of Arctic Monkeys in 2018. For those of you who know me, this is a pretty big deal for me. Reading into the rumours and it’d appear that an album is due for release around early Spring which would point at a single being released in the next month or so.

Predicting where their sound will go is anyones guess. Who knows who Turner’s been influenced by over the past year or two.

Any suggestions or recommendations are always welcome. Enjoy.
