With the year nearly done and dusted and the festive break incoming, this week, we’re going to run down 40 of our favourite tracks of 2018, ten at a time, loosely grouped into seasons. Today we head right back to the beginning of the year for our winter selection. If you sign up to our ‘On The CMU Stereo 2018’ playlist on Spotify here, you can listen to all of these tracks now, and the other 30 as they are revealed later in the week.

The first part of the year was incredibly fertile for new music, giving us a huge amount of great things to listen to. Some of the year’s best albums arrived in this period, including Ezra Furman’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, Anna Von Hausswolff’s ‘Dead Magic’ and US Girls’ ‘In A Poem Unlimited’. There was also the first taste of new material from the likes of Janelle Monáe and Father John Misty, and a standalone release from the consistently great techno producer Anna.

Here’s what’s on our winter playlist:

Ezra Furman – Suck The Blood From My Wound
Moaning – Artificial
Tune-Yards – Heart Attack
Anna – Hidden Beauties
Rolo Tomassi – Aftermath
Anna Von Hausswolff – The Truth, The Glow, The Fall
US Girls – Pearly Gates
Janelle Monáe – Django Jane
Father John Misty – Mr Tillman
Natalie Prass – Short Court Style

Listen to all ten tracks here.
