The Hit List: 20 Demos, Albums and EP’s You Need to Hear Right Now — February 1, 2016

One of the things I’m most excited about with this week’s list is the release of new material from some artists whom I love and have been following for a while. It’s always great when you see an artist you love take the time to hunker down and write some new material that really shows an element of growth and evolution in their sound. In addition to triumphant returns for those artists, there are some people new to the Hit List who I’m super stoked to share! These albums really underscore what a wide world of music exists out there beyond the mainstream, and I love that it’s a never-ending journey of exploration. As always, albums are in no particular order, so you don’t wanna miss a moment of any of them!
