My Year-End Lists Of 2017

Posted on December 28, 2017 |


Remember me?

I know I know.

I’ve been all-around lazy when it comes to all things AGDFA but
you were still on my mind.

I swear!

The podcast is not dead. Just been on a long hiatus. I’ll come back to it
soon enough.

In the meantime, I did still listen to alot of music all year round and 2017 was
another good one.

If anything, there’s too much good music outthere and it’s hard to hear
it all or come up with a year-end list that captures the greatness without
missing one or 10 picks you’d wanna include on the list.

Here’s what I came up with and hopefully, you’ll agree with some of my
picks and best case scenario, you’ll discover a favorite new artist/band
in the process.
