I remember seeing Moses Sumney open up for Local Natives several years ago. It was love at first sight.
Open Mike Eagle flew onto my radar in 2017. Very refreshing hip-hop here.
Penguin Cafe Orchestra has been around for decades. If you are looking for great music to put on while you work your desk job, they’re entire discography should be considered.
Sampha makes his “25 Days of Music” debut with Process. Check it out and thank me later.
The World is a Beautiful Place returns with another promising collection of unique songs.

“Crack-Up” was a surprise for me. While it’s not as fantastic as the Fleet Foxes of the past, it’s a welcomed return to form.
Arcade Fire is always a critic’s favorite. But they’re one of those acts that aren’t wrongfully celebrated. They truly are amazing musicians.
Laugh all you want about including Taylor Swift on this countdown. Truth is, though, she’s going to be around for a very long time, and will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the best songwriters to ever live.
