Music got me through this year in many ways. Making, listening, loving it, whatever, it just works. It’s in my soul, my heart. These are a few of the albums that I had on repeat that stuck with me or hit a chord. I know this is an Americana blog, but the Strokes made a great album that topped my list this year. It’s damn good.
