What's that you say, we're now just 10 weeks away from the end of the year, and with it the end of the decade? Someone should write some sort of musical retrospective looking back over the best that the 2010s had to offer. Not us though, never mind all that old stuff from the past, we're solely focussed on what's new. Never looking backwards. Marching on with hope in our heart, and brand new bangers in our ears.
On the subject of which, today is yet another bumper day for new releases (isn't every Friday?) with lovely new albums from the likes of Foals, Floating Points, Caroline Polachek, Jacques Greene and some others that we've not had time to listen to just yet (namely Battles, Nils Frahm and Vagabon, but plenty more besides).
So as ever, below is a playlist of some of the picks of the last seven days to soundtrack your weekend and beyond.
