ADVENT 40- here it comes again! The year 2016

Although you won’t see this until the new year I thought it would be fun to share this list. I have been doing this since not long after John Peel died and it appears on my paradox one website. What I’d really like to know is what 2016 was like to our readers and contributors! NB 1 or 2 from 2015, slow starter!

Paradox One: Advent 40 – late additions

Paradox One artworkSorry these are a little late as we are already into the new year but I had some listening to catch up on:

EYES OF BLUE- IN FIELDS OF ARDATH (Esoteric) (review forthcoming in Acid Dragon magazine)

KAMASI WASHINGTON- THE EPIC (Brainfeeder) (brilliant jazz fusion with a difference)

JULIA HOLTER- HAVE YOU IN MY WILDERNESS (Domino)

FUCHSIA- FUCHSIA (Esoteric) (Classic ‘acid folk’ album with hints of Love and Fairport Convention but totally on its own planet, 7 minute numbers with intriguing twists and turns and violin making for a unique sound. Vastly underrated at the time and nice to see its latest incarnation on CD)

Have a few spaces still to fill- watch this space.
Now I wonder what 2016 will bring.
