We're halfway through the year so i figured i'd take a look at my favourite music so far.For whatever the reasons, i have had a shifting in my tastes to more electronic sounds this year...which may not be so evident looking at the most played albums, as many of this music comes from singles & EP releases. Also, it's easier for an album from January to be more played than one from June (like Patrick Wolf's Lupercalia), duh. Here are the albums i've listened most:
