end-of-year music list 2016

Feels way too early for this, I know. Tied up with college etc for the rest of the month so getting it out of the way now! Hope it helps someone find some new sounds... Thanks to Mark Harwood, Graham Lambkin and Dylan Nyoukis for keeping us fed.

"As I became older and more aware of things... This infinite stream of sound became my life and my music all at once. ...This I came to understand was music that belonged to everyone..."

- Alvin Curran, May 2016
