January: very quiet for albums, though not so much for singles where albums on the horizon make an early landing. I try to end up with no more than 20 and last year had 26 albums by the end of the year -which means some of these won’t make it. But The Weeknd should…

February: all top three albums are new to this month, Regina Bonelli is going to be difficult to better, but then again I said that about The Weeknd…

March: Three new albums in the top five, Arrdee is his debut mixtape and Shenseea is a new and wonderful dancehall performer from Jamaica

April: Kae Tempests best in years and Hodgy, the Odder Odd future, with an excellent EP

May: three more, the Venezuelan opera singer Samuel Marino, the new Tomas Doncker (but not the last, we are awaiting Endangered) and the sublimely badass Otoboke Beaver

June: the first shake up of the year sees three albums fall off and a new # 1

July – two major r&b albums near the upper reaches, Lil Uzi Vert and Lizzo

August – April’s debut album vaults to # 2

September – the shake up at the top continues with Otokobe Beaver leaping into the top three after months on the bubble, and my favorite Dawes album also making n apperance while Drake drops off entirely.
