Well 2016 has been an amazing year, in the 5 months we have been open we've seen some amazing releases and we have discovered some fantastic new artists.

We have managed to get the list down to a top 30, that was really tough!We will put together a list of all the stuff we left out over the next few days....here we go. 1. Angel Olsen - My Woman -...
