My Jams - June 2018

In June I listened to music from 327 albums by 263 different artists.

Radiohead topped the artist chart again with Olafur Arnalds in a not too distant second place. I was quite surprised that he didn't crack the top ten in either of the last two months as he's one of my go-to artists whatever my mood!

Other notable entries were Max Richter, his album Sleep is a masterpiece (and also 8 hours 24 mins long) and Under The Influence Of Giants who I hadn't listened to in a long while.

My jams | May 2018

If it looks like I went on a bit of a Radiohead binge in May... You are very much correct! I hadn't listened to them in ages and I'd definitely forgotten how good they are. So I made amends in spectacular style!

Jonas Bonnetta is the only new discovery to crack my Top 10 lists from May. His album All This Here is excellent.

In total, I listened to music from 197 albums and by 149 different artists.

My jams | April 2018

Note: the number to the right of the album name isn't the total plays for the album as a whole, but the number of tracks played from that album — I'm not totally obsessed

I thought I might share some of the music I've been listening to recently. So courtesy of last.fm, the list above is my most played albums from April. Here's an extended list (I listened to tracks from 268 albums in total).

I recently purchased a pair of Sonos Ones (one for the kitchen and another for the living room). As a result, I've been listening to a lot more music than in previous months — which is saying something as pre-Sonos I listened to a lot of music anyway!

I only just discovered Jean-Michel Blais and his album II. It's become a new favourite for playing in the background whilst I'm working or reading, which explains the number one spot on the list.

Kendrick Lamar is the other notable artist on the list (his music is a little different from Jean-Michel's). I hadn't listened to Kendrick Lamar in quite a while, but as he just won a Pulitzer for his album DAMN. I thought I should probably give it a listen — it's a great album, well worth the hype!
