Holy cow. The year is half over!

To be honest, I have no idea how ‘alternative’ my list is compared to my cohorts in heavy, as I avoided them like the plague in an effort to remain truthful with my list of favorite songs. It’s my website, dammit, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to change my list of favorite jams because I was beat to the punch! I’d imagine they aren’t much different though—you know what they say; “birds of a feather flock together.” So if there’s some huge overlap, then don’t hold that against me. You’re in our roost, after all.

These are in no particular order, as my main plan is to just flip through the iTunes cover flow and pick out stuff that catches my eye.

There’s some highlights. Obviously, we’ve raved over a ton of music this year so there’s some stuff I’m overlooking, but so far this year is looking to be better than the last.
