Here are our favourite albums of 2016. We have to go against the flow a bit and say up front there is no place for David Bowie. Great though he was, and tragic that he died two days after the release of a good album, for us that was what it was, a good album, but not a great one. And besides he is topping damn near every other list.

Cold Pumas

Usually drawing on a heady brew of Pink Flag Wire, The Fall, Wipers and Deerhunter, Murmur of the Heart is the third track from Cold Pumas’ new record The Hanging Valley and is possibly their “poppiest” moment yet.

It follows two other cracking singles, the brilliant, epic sludged-out motorik of Fugue States and the post-punk smear of Severed Estates.

Stream all three below. We’re looking forward to the album (August 19th) immensely.
