Abduction Radiation’s Year-In Review

image

2015 was a fantastic year for music and our Year-In Review is only a snapshot of the wonderful music that was released. The sections are my top 25 records of the year, under the radar, honorable mentions, and best newcomers. I’ve also embedded a soundcloud playlist of a few singles that I’ve enjoyed and a “master” Spotify playlist. Anything released in 2015 is fair game. The Spotify playlist will be updated whenever I find music released in 2015, so it’s semi-ongoing. Everything is in alphabetical order and hyperlinked.

I am not real...or at least not who you think I am, merely a figment of my own imagination. If you stumbled upon this blog...I can only wonder how.
