Editors’ Picks – May 2017

This year charges on and doesn’t appear to show any signs of slowing down.

The list below is a great example of this; it contains post rock, grindcore, jazz, psychedelic electronics, death metal, stoner and oh so much more. Each of these sub-genres have been producing great releases this year, giving 2017 the illusion of a siege.
