The Best of the Rest in Music: 2015 Edition

best of the rest

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
