Troika #23: Best of 2015

Troika #23: Best of 2015

Its an end of year list! Only shorter! This threesome won’t take long to read or listen to, but it took me a very long time to choose just three from so much wonderful music in 2015. To make it easier, I excluded any music that has already featured in Troika, so without further ado, my three most-played are…

  1. ‘Satellites’ by Mew
    Mew’s ‘+/-’ is my album of the year, another epic from the Danish group.
  2. ‘Repetition’ by Purity Ring
    The Canadian two-piece’s second album is a stunner, and this is my favourite from ‘Another Eternity’ (I mistakenly call it ‘Beyond Eternity’ in the podcast – ouch!)
  3. ‘Winter Dress’ by The Amazing
    A slightly mournful track, but it really is gorgeous! I naturally gravitate towards the last tracks of albums, and this is why. A Troika on ‘closing tracks’ is planned for future…

The cover image is from Bring Me the Horizon’s gig at Alexandra Palace back in November, which I have to say, rocked.
