Year End Weekly ReccommNeds | 2013

It’s been a pleasure and an honor to write this column for JamBase and try to turn y’all onto some new music. Hopefully you’ve been following along and made a new discovery or two along the way. All of my RecommNeds picks for the year can be found in this Spotify playlist: RecommNeds 2013.

By way of wrapping up 2013, here are some fantastic JamBase-worthy artists and albums I plugged in the last 12 months that you might have missed the first time around that definitely merit a (re)listen before the last page turns on another calendar.
