We're at the start of another year, sure to bring with it yet more incredible music. I will still outline some of my favourite purchases each month, but I'll be changing the post a little. I will try and pick ten releases, but I'm not certain that I'll be able to name ten every month. This is mainly because it's all down to what I can afford and I doubt I'll be able to match last years spending habits!
Nevertheless, I feel it's important to share what I've been listening to each month and will continue to make posts throughout the year. Not all of the posted material will be physical editions - some will be digital or even free netlabel work. So it's always worth a read, even when you've not got much money to splash out on music!
This month, I've managed just five albums/EPs/whathaveyou. It's been a tough start to the year in terms of finances and time, not to mention a few items purchased this month being from various 2011 year end lists!
