I was happily having a break from writing stuff about music, but then I heard a load of good music so I thought I'd pop them in a list and send them into the ether. Here are the 6 best things I listened to in January:


Field Music - Making a New World (Memphis Industries)



Sonic Cathedral are celebrating their 15th birthday this week. That's 15 years from their very first shoegaze club night at the Legion in Shoreditch and since then they've put on tonnes of gigs as well of releasing some classic records on "the label that celebrates itself". To celebrate the occasion Sonic Cathedral are hosting a series of gigs including a special celebration night at the Bush Hall in London on November 15th, featuring a mouth watering lineup of Maps, Mark Peters and James Holden (DJ).
