The Best of 2018

The Best of 2018

2019 is here (for a while actually) but we can't avoid telling you the greatest things that happened and that we listened to last year.

Just like every year, some new rhythms, new weird-sounding bands and old favourites, (re)appear somewhere between radio, streaming services or that amazing gig we went to last week, to remind us that music (and rock *wink wink wink*) is not dead.

And because we are a collective that has a similar musical taste - in some way, you will find bands that you might have seen in our old lists, and/or, if you actually know us very well, you know that we have been hiding some cheeky surprises. Before you say it, yes will find albums that everyone has listened to (Hey Pitchfork's fan, little Spotify monkeys making your weekly playlist and man / women behind the counter of our favourite record shop. How’re you doing?).  

But enough of my boring chat. Let's move to what really matters…
