Eurovision 2016 is almost here and I’m super excited! This year the Semi-finals will be held on the 10th and 12th of April with the grand final being held on Saturday 14th April. This year the contest is being held in Sweden and will feature 43 different countries. Having heard all of this year’s entries (multiple times as I’m a proper Eurovision geek!) I have finally come up with my top 5 entries for this year.
If you want to hear all 43 songs then you can listen to snippets from my entire top 43 below as well as full videos from my top 5! Are you excited for Eurovision this year? Maybe you’ve already decided your favourites too? Let us know in the comments below! There is also a thread over on the forum if you would like to discuss anything related to Eurovision.

We all understand the need for some music aficionados to look for other mediums in pop music when all else becomes a bit obsolete, or even boring! Fortunately, in this alternative version of the Alexandria library called Internet, we can always find something to satisfy our demanding ears. And I can give you a helping hand if you are looking for pop music: We present to you the relatively new promise (It’s not a pun of her first EP: Promises.) Ryn Weaver!

In these articles I quickly go through what I think about some of the most noticeable albums released during the previous month. I’ve also included ANTI, as last month I said I wouldn’t review it until it came out on Spotify. You’re next Kanye if you want to get a move on.

Animal Collective – Painting With
Highlights: Golden Gal
Comments: How the mighty have fallen! When your career is based on continuously evolving your sound, it must be difficult when the world catches up. Painting With sticks with a traditional album structure, all songs 3-4 minutes long and with the same goofy, kitchen sink sound. AC’s strength used to be in their songs’ twists, turns and builds. The songs on Painting show their full hand 30 seconds in, leaving the rest of the album going nowhere.
