BEST OF 2016 – Promising Discoveries

tsr_endofyear_radio_promo-03

Let it be done already! As we are all fully aware by now, 2016 was an all-around terrible year. I could list a hundred reasons why, but new music was definitely not one of them. There are so many great new bands and musicians that we discovered this year, it would be impossible to cover all of them. So, here we have just a few of our favorite newbies to emerge in our consciousness over the past year. Interestingly enough, the first three are all on the Bloomington, Indiana based label Winspear (you have our attention!).

Check back December 31st for our Best of 2016 – Releases of the Year list!
