Hi Pete,

Thanks for the list.

A few similarities and a few I haven’t heard and will have to check out.

See you on Saturday.

Hi Ian. Just putting my own list together I see that we hardly have any albums in common for a change. Maybe that means 2015 has been a good year?

I see the New Order album has featured in a few best-of lists in the newspapers/mags. I haven't heard it all so will try and do so soon. Ditto with Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

I'm also going to try and listen to some Joanna Newsom, finally. I can see that she might be a bit of an acquired taste but will give it a go anyway.
