Favorite Albums and Songs of 2015–so far

As predicted–after a weak 2014–2015, it has been a great year for music! There are so many fantastic releases that I haven’t even made my way through–and exciting releases dropping every week. My only complaint about the year has been the sheer volume of music coming out. I find it hard to keep up and I often feel I’m not giving all albums and tracks a fair shake. But that said–I have worked through lots and lots of music–and these are the albums and songs that keep calling me back. Maybe it’s my mood, maybe it’s because they are legit fab–you’ll just have to check them out for yourself.
