2017 has been a monumental year for music in my humblest of opinions. Journey through my personal highlights, surprises and escapades with me, and disagree with everything I’m saying.
(sorry this is so long, I’m clearly just over-excited/obsessed/mentally unnerved by Divide’s brilliance – feel free to ignore everything I’m saying and just look at the pretty blue graphics) Can we just all take a minute to let all other comparatively inane thoughts fade into insignificance, and devote our deserved attention on Divide, Ed… Continue reading DIVIDE.
