A bit all over the map here and in no particular order, these were my favorite albums released in 2018. I emphasize albums because these were solid listens as full LPs and not just a dope joint here and there. As in I dig some of Cardi’s jams, but her full length was extra meh IMO. The art of the full album isn’t gone, but it’s def rare these days. Kudos to artists that still take the time to craft something meaningful as a full listening experience. Y’all are the real heroes in this current music game. Enjoy!
Louis Cole – Time
Kali Uchis – Isolation
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – The Serpent’s Mouth
Buddy – Harlan & Alondra
Leon Bridges — Good Thing
Black Thought — Streams Of Thoughts Volumes 1 & 2
The Internet – Hive Mind
Anderson .Paak – Oxnard
The Midnight Hour — The Midnight Hour
Charles Bradley – Black Velvet
There’s more, and as always if you think there isn’t good music coming out these days, then you’re asleep at the wheel for real. Support independents and support real talent. Important as ever these days. Peace!
