Dec 31, 2015

In this episode, I talk about several of my favorite geek music releases from this year. I’ve narrowed the field to thirty for the podcast, then for the column I’m going to publish the top 15 that I consider to be the absolute best that were released this year.

For the podcast list, I just went with alphabetical order by artist, but the actual column on the web site will be in order from fifteen to one. There’s something satisfying about having a list of fifteen in 2015, plus I tend to like Best Of lists myself, so that’s why I decided to do it this way.
