TheSpirit's 20gr8teen

I've been making more of an active effort to listen to listen to music this year, and its really paid off; 2018, in my opinion, has been fantastic. There have been gems from every corner of every genre, and if there's one thing there hasn't been, it's a lack of good music to check out. This is list of my favorite releases of the year so far. After #1, it's not really ranked. Looking forward to what the rest of the year has to offer.
