Best of 2017 so far (mid-year recap)

Hey! It's June and you know what that means - it's time for my mid-year round-up! Despite our political system suffering a prolonged period of instability and uncertainty, at least there has been a constant stream of excellent music to get us through the mess...

As always, there have been far too many excellent albums released in the past 6 months for me to possibly name them all, so here is my top 10 (in no particular order) + plus a few special mentions:

1. Lorde - Melodrama
2. Kelly Lee Owens - Kelly Lee Owens
3. Valerie June - The Order Of Time
5. Sampha - Process
6. London Grammar - Truth Is A Beautiful Thing
7. MUNA - About U
8. Fleet Foxes - Crack-Up
9. Lydia Ainsworth - Darling of the Afterglow
10. The xx - I See You

Honorable mentions

Austra - Future Politics
Perfume Genis - No Shape
The Big Moon - Love In The 4th Dimension 
Paramore - After Laughter
Julie Byrne - Not Even Happiness

Added to my ongoing songs playlist:
