So, every month this year, I'm going to attempt to do a digest on the site of the best bits that month in music had to offer. Half of it will be stuff I love. Half of it will be approximately what you lot are loving, singling out some individual picks and shit like that...kinda a digest of this thread. And I'll also share the most read threads, most read editorial and maybe some other picks and that. Suggestions of anything else you'd like to see in this article each month are very much welcomed.
We've got limited resources, so something's gotta give and this is gonna be a replacement for the weekly Spotifriday... there will be a monthly spotify playlist as well as embeds and that, as the weekly Spotify thing seems - from your feedback - a bit much, and because lots of you said you wanted to just know what the best stuff was each month. I might even attempt to pick an album of the month, each month. Maybe a top 5, and let you lot vote for number 1?
Anyway, the next few replies in this thread will be a few of my picks thus far, feel free to react calling me 'tard and post your own picks (I'll try to listen to all of them - unless Jimi posts like 400 hrs of dubstep mixes, then I might not make it through them all) and yeah, let's see how this makingitupasigoalongapproach goes and refine it, as and when...
