Summer is officially over. Autumn is already in the air. Festival season is petering out. The year marches onward and, in financial terms, we're stumbling over the finish line of the second quarter for yet another year and it's been as eventful as ever. There's never a time when stuff isn't happening.

What happened? Loads of things, but to surmise: Ryan Adams said he would make a cover album of Taylor Swift's 1989 and he kept to his word. Kanye West sent the BBC subtitles crazy ("HE RAPS." "all day, ligger", etc.) as he stepped up to headline Glastonbury. Drake and Future made a mixtape together. It also turned out that James Franco is sort of in love with Lana Del Rey. Oh, yeah, and Apple Music is definitively a thing now.

But enough about events and things that have happened. What about all the music that was released during the past three months? All the albums, EPs, music videos? What features did you miss that you should probably read? Well, you need look no further… than directly below this.
