The Best of the Rest in Music: 2015 Edition

In the blink of an eye 2015 will be over, which means it’s time for everyone to unveil their favorite, best of, and must listen to lists. So I decided to join the crowd! The only slight difference being that I thought I would share my “best of the rest” albums. Consequently, I’ve decided that I am not allowed to include anything I have already posted about this year.

Hundreds of terrific albums came out this year, so I thought instead of rehashing the ones that everyone has already told you to listen to, I would highlight some of the gems that might unfortunately go unnoticed or fall through the “best of” cracks. Without further ado, and in alphabetical order (what can I say, I’m a librarian) here you go…

Dawes – All Your Favorite Bands

Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors – Medicine

Elle King – Love Stuff

Grace Potter – Midnight

Ivan & Alyosha – It’s All Just Pretend
