2015 was for the pond a lovely noisy year, mostly focused on guitars but also high-fever emotions. never again the frog felt such a frenzy at approaching a record shop, showing clear evidence, indeed, of no-return addiction. the greatest milestones of the year are now listed here for you and we are very happy to share such an incredible and brilliant selection. a click on each picture or link will provide you with either the entire streaming of the said album/song or an alternative concert version. thank you for your interest in the music we try to promote, and we look forward to discovering and sharing further more jewels in 2016.
