headphonescolours

And so continues on with my yearly ‘Best of’ music list.
Music is my obsession, I am always looking for new and interesting variety of bands and singers to check out. These selections are my favorites that have been released throughout the year. Its been a long year and I spent the past few weeks catching up with all the music that passed me by throughout 2015. It took me awhile to put this list together, some albums have links to their bandcamp pages.

I do what I can with whatever I have to work with.
This was a spur of the moment drawing session- go with my gut Instinct rather than over-think everything (as I usually end up doing).
