Have you heard of #MWE? Every day during February, music writers and fans take up the challenge of listening to an album that they've never heard before and write one tweet about it. 

Music writer exercise, or #MWE, was started by music journalist Gary Suarez last year and it has rapidly became popular amongst musos keen to get their grubby hands on some new music. 

Other than finding new artists and expanding your music taste, the main joy of MWE is sharing recommendations. There simply isn't anything better than a personal recommendation, and no amounts of algorithms on Spotify, Apple Music or whatever streaming service you use, will truly be able to replace that.

So in the spirit of the event, we've decided to recommend 29 albums you might not have heard before but are certainly worth checking out. And if there are any albums you think we should try, then feel free to let us know in the comments! Sharing is caring, ya'll!
