Listen to a selection of our favourite tunes and test tracks on our Spotify and Tidal playlists for 2016, updated every month with new tracks.

If you want an idea of what we've been listening to over the last month or so, then check out our What Hi-Fi? playlist on Spotify and also now on Tidal. Subscribe to the playlists and you'll never miss an update...

It's a sample of some of the tunes we've been using to test with and generally enjoying, all wrapped up neatly in a playlist.

Today's March issue update, with 20 new tracks, is a rollercoaster ride of more-or-less deliriously exciting music, from Super Furry Animals' arch Something 4 The Weekend to Gunnar Haslam's uber-moody slow burner Culver Viaduct via the bonkers Jump Up Quickly by Mungo's Hi-Fi (parental advisory: that last tune contains what can only be described as verbal slackness of the basest kind). And there's plenty more where that came from!

Want more recommendations, plus movie and music news and reviews? You can follow the What Hi-Fi? Playlist Twitter account.

To listen to the playlists, make sure you have Spotify or Tidal installed and then click on the links below to load-up the playlist.  Got your own recommendations? Let us know in the comments below. Enjoy!

Hi - are there plans to make

Hi - are there plans to make these lists available on other platforms, like Deezer or GooglePlay (or, indeed, Waves - the new streaming service that you announced on 1 April!)

Yes, we are working with Tidal to create an editorial WHF? playlist for them, so watch this space. Not so sure about Waves though wink
