The Best of Music in 2016

There were so many extraordinary albums and songs written this year! Artists from each genre are making 2016 a very good music year even with the sad loss of so many music legends. David Bowie´s Blackstar and Leonard Cohen´s You Want it Darker are gemstones that will be kept close to the heart. The music scene in Iceland is better then ever with such good hip hop and RnB ruling the island from the likes of Sturla Atlas, Emmsjé Gauti and Aron Can. One of the best things that happened this music year was Iggy Pop´s new album Post Pop Depression influenced and made with the help from Josh Homme ,Queens of the Stone Age frontman which is never going to be a bad thing. Oh and Frank Ocean, you made my year! Thank you!
