02. RUTS DC – ‘Music Must Destroy’

ruts-dc

…The tour de force of an album concludes with the acoustically driven folk song Golden Boy. I cannot recommend this album highly enough – its different, varied and a package of classic songs. I simply loved it.

01. NEW MODEL ARMY – ‘Winter’

nma-winter

…It leaves you satisfied, like welcoming home a friend who you haven’t seen for years and realizing you’ve both grown but you still have so much in common. It’s simply a brilliant listen.
