Well here it is! It’s very nearly the end of another busy year at Melting Vinyl and we wanted to share with you our favourite albums/singles/EPs and live shows of the year. Don’t forget it’s our Christmas Party tomorrow night at The Green Door Store so come and party with us, Coves, The Peppermint Beat Band and Tarq Bowen!
