2016 Feature Wrap Up
Dec 13, 2016 Updated Jan 20, 2017

Across summer, we reminisce over a collection of records that were featured across the last 12 months.

Our CD inbox (and emails) were inundated once again with loads of new music. There were some fantastic Australian recordings that punched way above their weight, as well as a considerable number of newcomers landing on the international stage, not to mention a few archival re-issues. Here are some of our favourite features from the year that was 2016.
