Hi Lovelies, I hope you’re all well!
It has been quite a while since my last music-related post, I think the last one was August 2016.. *insert grimace emoji here*
Still, back by (not-so) popular demand is my beloved roundup of what I’ve been listening to this past month.
I’ve largely taken inspiration from my wonderful but all-too-brief trip down to London to celebrate the New Year. I stood with thousands of others dancing and celebrating the end of what was generally considered the shittiest year for quite some time. We lost musical greats, cultural icons and have allowed given racist, ignorant, sexist idiots a wealth of undeserved power and authority..
It was (almost) all forgotten at midnight on Embankment when people from all walks of life ooo’d and aah’d over fireworks, and danced to George Michael. You can hardly blame me for wanting to re-capture that feeling in a playlist, can you?!
Here it is then, my positive, new outlook after a stormy year.
