We just finished updating our free music listings to include many of the albums from 2016 that you can stream or download at no cost. Sure, there are plenty of additional albums from this year that fall into the broad definition of avant-garde, but these are ones that we featured on the site in one way or another, and are all great in their own way. Enjoy your listening, and pay the artists for copies if you find something you really like.
That’s all for now. Happy holidays.

If you missed Thurston Moore and John Zorn jamming at Rough Trade last month, here’s your chance to make up for it and then some. On December 31, at 8pm, they’ll again team up for some sax and guitar improv, but this time No Wave pioneer Ikue Mori, of DNA, will be chiming in on electronics. Cellist Okaying Lee will also be in the mix.
