I didn’t post a festive fifteen for 2016. I've decided to stop waiting for an arbitrary time of year to compile a list of things I've been listening to. I'd rather mention them as they catch my ear.

In that spirit, I've been playing the new Environments records (6 and 6.5) by The Future Sound of London a lot recently. There's a depth and complexity to FSOL's albums (and to those produced under their various pseudonyms). They draw you in, but the threads spun by Dougans and Cobain twist and weave in ways that aren't predictable. They're an absorbing, rewarding listen.
