Double J’s Feature Albums of 2016

Primary tabs

All the albums that Double J featured throughout 2016.

Every week on Double J, we choose a brand new album that we love and showcase it throughout the week on air and online.

Some of the records go on to become firm favourites and future classics, while others slip away from the front of our minds as time passes.

But they’re all great records and this list will hopefully serve as a bit of a reminder of the excellent music that these brilliant artists gave us in 2016. Learn about a record you missed, or rediscover one you’d forgotten about.
