It’s past the halfway mark into the year and time to take stock on what’s been moving me the most in the last six months. I expect lots of change by the end of the year including albums from The Horrors, Patrick Kelleher, Zomby and maybe Beirut, Thundercat, The Rapture, Björk, Modeselektor and St. Vincent. There’s also those other albums I’ve not given a proper listen yet (hello Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Middle East,Colin Stetson, FaltyDL and John Maus) . For now, I hope this list reminds or recommends you something.
Links go to reviews, album streams or posts and there’s a list of Irish albums of the year so far and lots of Soundcloud listening below from the listed albums.
