Music 2017

20170915_142339

My 2017 year end music blog will be short and sweet as I really dropped the ball on writing about the new music I listened to this year.  It seems only appropriate that I’m finally doing my 2017 blog the third day in 2018.  A lot of personal things happened this year, all good, that ate up a lot of my time and didn’t allow me to listen to as much as I would have liked or listen to the new music as intently as normal.  So I’m hoping to come back with a vengeance in 2018.  Hopefully to an annoying degree.

There was a ton of amazing music released this year by some immensely talented folk that I consider to be at the top or near the top of their craft.  So within the list of albums that I listened to, I will mark the albums that really stood out for me and feel they are well worth your time in checking out.  Personally, my two favorite albums of the year (I couldn’t choose just one) were the new albums from Spoon and St. Vincent.  Just top notch.  As always, there will be a link to my Spotify playlist with a track from each album I checked out:
