Best of Newly Heard in 2016

This year’s list is surprisingly up to date, with four of the top six recommendations being released in the last twelve months. When looking for new music suggestions I often start unseasonably picking through the abandoned remains of the previous year’s 'best of' lists long after they’ve been published and forgotten. It feels slightly illicit, like finding a box of Christmas decorations on the hottest day of the year and deciding to hang them up, but they are still a good source for scavenging high quality recommendations. This influence is more visible in the longer playlist which contains the six songs below plus eleven more.
