Since (like last year) it was ridiculously tough to narrow down a top albums list, I wanted to again (like last year) share some of my hands down favorite songs of the year, off of albums or EPs that narrowly (I know, I know and probably wrongly) missed my "best of" cut. Please check them out. I sincerely only make the playlists, best of lists, etc. in hope that others might relish some of the music I love. This set is far from exhaustive.
Here are the songs in no particular priority order, along with a playlist.
