Part challenge, part something to take my mind off losing little Ralphie, I've decided to listen to 366 new (to me, not necessarily new releases) albums/EPs this year. My late teenage years were spent looking for new music to listen to as I worked on my art & photography sketchbooks for college, but for the past eighteen months I've pretty much just had Adele and Banks on repeat. So here's to discovering some new tunes. It's certainly long overdue.
One. This is Acting - Sia
About: C'mon. It's Sia. You know Sia.
Thoughts: Didn't totally hate it.
Two. Tell Me It's Real - Seafret
About: An indie/acoustic duo, but this simple description doesn't do them justice.
Favourite tracks: 'Oceans', 'Missing', 'Tell Me It's Real', 'Be There'
Thoughts: Beautiful & inspiring.
Three. Matter - St. Lucia
About: Brooklyn based 'shimmery synth pop'
Favourite tracks: Ehhh...
Thoughts: My ears said nope.
Four. Ritual Spirit - Massive Attack

Six. Glory - Good Morning
About: Duo from Melbourne with some brilliant hazy pop tunes
Favourite tracks: 'To Be Won', 'Give Me Something To Do', 'The Great Start'
