Best releases of 2015 - IMHO

Yet another - at the moment - irregular post from my hand (and a probably close-to feeble attempt),
regarding which releases have been doing it for me in 2015!

2015 - Favorite 12"/EP (In no particular order)
F.O. - there are way to many to list up here, but highlights include Roger van Lunteren's
"The Hills" and the "rare as rocking-horse shit" limited release of "Octoplex", Karl Lihagen's project - Evigt Mörker's "3", plus releases by Tominori Hosoya as for John Shima's "2", too!
