My Best Albums of 2016

boxer-1

The Boxer Rebellion OCEAN BY OCEAN. Absentee Recordings/Amplify Records

Another high quality album from a band that never fails to deliver

beth-13

Beth Hart FIRE ON THE FLOOR. Provogue

“Beth Hart is on fire. Right now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is riding a creative tidal wave”

yeasayer-1

Yeasayer AMEN AND GOODBYE. Mute

Sonically intelligent, jam packed with ideas and expertly arranged

yerra-1

Terra Lightfoot EVERY TIME MY MIND RUNS WILD. Sound Circus

Whether you’re talking about her as a songwriter, guitarist or vocalist, one thing is indisputable: roots rocker Terra Lightfoot is a ferocious talent

kristin

Kristin Hersh WYATT AT THE COYOTE PALACE. Yes Dear Music

A great listen and highly recommended

adamson-11

Barry Adamson KNOW WHERE TO RUN. Central Control

This album is by far my favourite of his. It’s a great album which deserves to be heard

elevant-11

Elevant THERE IS A TIDE. E M L/Weiner Records

There’s adventure in just about every groove of this record and a sense that Elevant are influenced by what they want and not the demands of labels and the money men

massy-1

Massy Ferguson RUN IT RIGHT INTO THE WALL. At The Helm

This is one hell of a fine album that crackles with instant hooks and melodies, and has an effervescence of choruses

BEST LIVE RECORDING

bonamassa-1

Joe Bonamassa LIVE AT THE GREEK THEATRE. Provogue Records

An awesome tribute to BB King, Albert King and Freddie King. Joe’s playing is just tremendous not to mention the phenomenal band
