My 2017 Music Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

2017 followed closely in the footsteps of 2016, i.e. just as much of a dodgy year in many world wide respects, but again, not in gigs for me … yet another good one!

Best Gigs –

My Gig of the Year award goes to … Radiohead at Glasgow Green.  Simply the best band in the world, stunning. My only 10/11 rating of 2017.

I had four 9/11s, which were great , but get the ‘close but no cigar’ award … and in chronological order  –

8.5/11s included finally getting to see Mugison , and great shows from Kagoule, Sam Coomes and July Talk .

Best Albums

Not too many albums really struck me this year but the clear stand out was Music For People In Trouble by Susanne Sundfør. What a tremendous collection of simple but powerful songs. Very meaningful and important to me in 2017.

Best New Discovered Artists

I’d heard about Susanne Sundfør but not paid much attention until John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux  festival in Hull during April.  What a revelation, and she became by far my most listened to artist of 2017.  How could I have missed her ’til now?  What a find! See Susanne Sundfør – CCA, Glasgow – 3 Oct 2017
