Blame it on the season! There’s been an abnormal amount of new music released in the last few weeks and man, is it wonderful. Clearly spring has sprung for the music industry and we’re fortunate enough to reap the rewards. We had such a hard time narrowing the song selection down to just ten that we decided to expand the tracklist to fifteen.
