Every year I evaluate the best of the music I discovered during the previous 365 days. My aim is to get the playlist finalized in January, but life usually exerts itself instead. And this is it! The moment you’ve all been waiting for! The (2015) Best of Last Year mixlist!
(Yea! Hurrah! Awesome! Uh, what… what is this, now?)
Some old favorites released disappointing albums in the past year, while some up-and-comers released phenomenal ones. Ben Folds and Death Cab for Cutie both had new releases that failed to resonate with me. Meanwhile, Cold War Kids, The Decemberists and Shakey Graves really brought it home.
There’s some EDM, some covers and even some French hip-hop in the mix (so to speak). I guess there’s a little something for everyone! (Unless you really love polka; there’s no polka.)
See the playlist and listen to it on my (2015) Best of Last Year mixlist.
