The list is back! A lot of my new music listening in 2018 came via Spotify’s Discover Weekly, and probably skewed this list even more towards white / female vocal / guitar than my default taste.

I ran out of time this year so there are no notes about the top ones but it’s very important to get this posted on January 1 in accordance with tradition :)
