I know it isn't the end of June yet, which will mark the middle of the year, but given quite how much has come out so far this year and how many legends we've lost, and new acts you've probably discovered, I thought it might be good to begin reviewing the year so far in earnest.
A few weeks back I recorded a special podcast / playlist commentary with Danielle Perry, and we've tried to sum up the best bits (i.e. our favourite releases) of the first three months of the year http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4150134-best-of-2016-so-far
We're recording Q2 in review tomorrow and would love to include a few of your recommendations from the past 3 months / year so far. So, what under-appreicated gems should I include? And how would you sum up the year so far? Good? Ok? Not quite as vintage a year as 2008? 7.2?
