Maaaaaan! It's been a massive month for music, so much vinyl!! The year itself is shaping up to be huge!
There's so much UK talent turning out killer productions, time after time. Of course, there is still a ton of good stuff coming stateside. First track from new band The Stepkids is amazing. As ever, Theo Parrish is on the money and there's a monster album from Rick Wilhite. Amongst many others.
Nevertheless, the UK contingent is represented massively in the charts for this month. See if you agree;
