Oh, you thought we would just list the top albums and best singles/EPs of the year? Nah, we made a playlist for you to enjoy too. Listen now!
“Golden Hour made me rethink my opinion on Country music today. It’s the perfect mix of country, pop, truth and vulnerability.”
– Rebecca Potzner, Marketing
” Safe in the Hand of Love boldly bends genres and takes you on a nostalgic journey of self discovery.”
– Julianna Cvetetic, Design
“DAYTONA is an undeniable masterpiece of focused precision and minimalist excellence. In a mere 25 minutes Pusha T not only delivers the year’s best album, but also further cements himself amongst the highest echelon of hip-hop artists.”
-Mathan Gore, Operations/Contracts
“The imagery from the listening party under Queensboro Bridge for NASIR perfectly represents the album – we get powerful bar after bar from Nas, classic Kanye soul-filled beats and more relevance than another other album I heard in 2018. Also, everything made me cry at least a dozen times.”
-Cory Smith, Marketing
“Nils Frahm’s ‘All Melody’ explores depths I didn’t know I wanted to willingly venture to. Ambitious and pristine. I would recommend listening to the album its entirety on a long walk outside this winter.”
-Rhett Talbert, Marketing
