Your monthly dose of suggested listening
It becomes considerably harder with each month to neatly sum all that’s happened since the last one. But as music companies around the world slow their output, and spring releases quickly become summer/autumn/winter releases, at least April has still treated us to some more great music (including the first universally-adored “Event Album” we can recall of the last five years), and a bit of time to listen to them. So, crack open a discount Easter Egg, keep up with all-that’s-good via a free email subscription to our brand new Independent Music Dispatch, and put on the best eight albums from April.
