about music and what it promises. Even in the early stages of 2017, we have seen some fantastic albums arrive and big ones announced. There are, in the latest edition of The January Playlist, a lot of great songs and moments from artists both established and brand-new. I do not know what the remainder of the month holds but things have started bright and eager. I have collected together new songs from the likes of Laura Marling and FKA twigs; gems from Wild Beasts and Deaf Havana. Also, because a new David Bowie E.P. (No Plan) has been released, I include a track from that. With the weather so cold and unforgiving: sit back and enjoy a veritable banquet of stunning tunes and sensational music.

I have alluded to (in the header of this feature) it is a brief Playlist – for me, anyway. The fact is, there are a lot of great songs out there so it is quite hard capturing them all and getting a proper grip. It is encouraging seeing music step up to the plate of 2017 and really show some guts. As bands and artists are primed to deliver incredible albums/songs in the coming weeks: it seems January’s music is a lot more pleasant, clement and nourishing than the British weather. With that in mind, it is worth shutting the door and blanking the outside world out a bit – enjoying that music and forgetting about things for a bit.
