School of Seven Bells 🇺🇸

12th February 2016 (LP)

The fourth and final LP from School of Seven Bells was completed without main songwriter Benjamin Curtis, who sadly died young in 2013. But it's a fine record, and the opening track, Ablaze, is a highlight from 2016 - a year of many highlights.

Lime Habit

Poliça 🇺🇸

13th November 2015 (single), 4th March 2016

If one uses the release date of the album, rather than the pre-release single, this track counts as being from the golden year of 2016 - for me the finest year of releases since 2004. It's distinctively Poliça, but without the prominent autotune effects that controversially featured in earlier releases.

Paper Thin

She Makes War (feat. Tanya Donelly) 🇬🇧🇺🇸

8th April 2016 (LP)

This track comes from 2016, the wonderful year where my annual "best-of" mix tape was one of the greatest I can remember. Paper Thin is by Laura Kidd, then using the She Makes War project name, and features Tanya Donelly on BVs.
