Doof's Top 25 'New Artist' Discoveries 2017

A little overlap with certain artists who'll feature in my SOTY/AOTY lists. In a way this is the most important list of any music fan's in any given year (whether they write it down formally or not) - these are the brand new acts who might possibly grow into all time favourites. The artists listed below I barely knew of, if I'd even heard of them at all, and i'd certainly not sat down and listened to a full album by them. It is reassuring to know that over the years each and every 12 months I'll always seem to find 5-10 artists that become all time favourites and this year was no exception. Check it.
