2018 Music Picks

Happy 2019!

Thank you for your interest in peering through my favourite music from the past year, MMXVIII. It’s been four years since I’ve published such a list. I’m sure there are many reasons why this has occurred (lazy? moi?), but I do enjoy looking back on the year that was to try and summarize in my own mind what releases I thoroughly enjoyed, and what still resonates whenever I hit ‘play’ today.

Those are probably all the introductory words you need. You’re just here for the good stuff, so without further ado, I present to you my favourite selections for 2018 (alphabetized, so no favouritism!).
