Here’s some of the new music I enjoyed the past year. There’s no particular order here, it’s just a list. There are links to reviews found on PMP where applicable. And, yes, not all these releases fit the theme of this website, but this is my post and I ask you to expand your mind just a tad and check out some of the albums listed. That’s fairly easily to do on the Modern Internet, isn’t it?
I also like to note that I own physical copies of all these releases. I’m a fan of streaming, but if I really love an album, I will try to buy the vinyl or CD edition. That helps the musicians a bit more.
Thanks for reading. Looking forward to what music 2019 has in store for us.
