Mook Life Music Round Up: Quarter 4 2015 and Quarter 1 2016

Music

It’s been quite a while since I’ve put one of these round ups out. Unfortunately I’ve had some laptop troubles and life often gets in the way of things you really want to do. I haven’t had time to go in to depth with this article but I just couldn’t let these releases go by without at least giving them a mention. Going forward I should be back to my usual format of giving all the releases a small review.

I told myself at the beginning of the year that I would slow down with music, try to just focus on the things I really wanted to listen to and give them more time. That has been thrown straight out the window because there has been so much good music coming out this year, I cant help myself.

So take a look through this article and catch up on all the music you may have missed. As always I’ve included a link to listen on YouTube (where possible) and a link to buy or download. You can also access all the YouTube tracks on a playlist here and here.
