Here at Killing Moon, we literally don’t stop listening to music – we also don’t stop talking a whole lot of crap. Scroll down to read the teams’ top picks for 2016, from our favourite albums, to the funniest music moments of the year – and if that isn’t enough for you, you can tune into our weekly Metro article ‘Now, New, Next‘ next Friday for our ‘best of’ tracklist!
