As hard as it is to keep up with the flood of ambient/electronic releases every year it's equally as difficult to stay on top of my indie feed.
This list is fairly eclectic going from prog rock of King Crimson to the pop of Janelle Monae. From Appalachian folk in Mountain Man to the noisey, distorted album from Low.
Check out some of the artists in this list and let me know some of your favorite releases from 2018.
