2016 has seen vinyl albums sore, great new artists emerge and a great loss of musical talent in the industry.
The Last Shadow Puppets - Everything you've Come to Expect
An 8 year wait marks a return for duo the Last Shadow Puppets offering Everything you've Come to Expect and my number one in the top 10 of 2016. Aviation is charming and seductive being described as psychedelic pop hooking the listening from the get go. Miracle Aligner, Everything you've Come to Expect and Bad Habits all have lyrics and roll of the tongue song titles with its smart production of James Ford with a simple yet effective sound.

Coldplay, Justin Bieber, One Direction and James Bay were the other big winners at the 2016 Brit Awards in London.
Adele dominated at this year’s Brit Awards, taking home four of the biggest awards of the night in addition to her show-stopping performance of new single ‘When We Were Young’ at the end of the evening.
The 27 year old Tottenham-born singer was named best British Female Solo Artist at the start of the ceremony, and her night only got better from that point onwards, as she also netted the Global Success Award, best British Single for ‘Hello’ and the evening’s most prestigious prize, best British Album for 25.
Adele’s acceptance speeches were among the viral moments of the evening, as she became increasingly lost for words as the evening went on. “To come back after so long away and be so warmly received means so much,” she said, “I got really lost for a while and I didn't know if I'd ever come back. For you all to be so kind to me is so nice.”

Further acts have been announced to perform at this year's Reading & Leeds Festival, as well as a well-desired headliner - Mumford and Sons.
Reading & Leeds Festival goers will be happy to hear the line up for this year has been released, and it is already looking like an incredible weekend for music enthusiasts. The bank holiday weekend of 28th-30th August 2015 will be hosting one of the UK's biggest music festivals. Across the weekend, bands are being plucked up to offer one of the best line-ups for the festival yet. Mumford And Sons will be headlining alongside Metallica this year, four years after their last performance at the festival. They will be joined by Royal Blood, Bastille, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Hannah Wants, Rebel Sound ft. Chase & Status, Rage, David Rodigan and Shy FX, Years & Years, Wolf Alice, and plenty more yet to be announced.
Mumford and Sons are due to perform at 2015's Reading and Leeds festivals
Mumford and Sons are proving to be a great choice for headline act this year. The bands last performance at Reading & Leeds was in 2010, where they played on the NME/ BBC Radio 1 stage. This will be their first live performance in two years, and with their stage upgraded to the Main stage, they are showing themselves to be a very worthy choice for headline act.

Pharrell comes out on top at the annual BBC Music Awards.
The 2014 BBC Music Awards results came as no surprise as three pop favourites were sent home on Thursday (December 11th 2014) clutching awards - and deservedly so at that. So who were our winners for British Artist of the Year, International Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and BBC Introducing?
Ed wins British Artist Of The Year
Ed Sheeran - Suffolk singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran landed British Artist of the Year, despite being up against some serious competition with the likes of Sam Smith and rock legend David Bowie. But it was a no-brainer when his second studio album 'X' - produced by His Musical Majesty Rick Rubin - became a number one success and he also became Spotify's most streamed artist of all time. He's also had a good year in that he got to appear on Bob Geldof's Band Aid 30 tribute 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' as well as appearing at the first ever London edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
