The Hit List: 20 Demos, Albums and EP’s You Need to Hear Right Now — January 4, 2016

A new year, and a whole lot of new amazing talent! I wanted to start the year off right, and to do that, I felt that 2016 should be the focus of the first few lists. As such, just to prove how much amazing music slides right below the radar, all of the releases on the Hit List this week came out on or after January 1, 2016. That means that every single one of these dropped in just the last few days ;) If that doesn’t paint a picture of how massive the independent music universe is, then I don’t know what will. Today I’m digging on everything from alternative-rock and metal to jazz and electronic, so check these people out! As always, albums are in no particular order, so let’s start 2016 off right. ;D
