TJ Foster: Q3 Top 10

This was probably the most difficult top ten list I’ve ever made. Any one of these 10 records could have held the number one spot in a normal year. But the amount of amazing music released this year, this quarter, hell even this month is pretty abnormal in the best way.

I’m going to let the music speak for itself here. If you haven’t checked out any of the albums below yet, find some time to do so. Trying to listen to everything released over the past couple months is almost impossible while also giving them all the attention they deserve. But the albums below, among others, are well worth your time.

10. Foo Fighters – Concrete and Gold
Recommended Track: La Dee Da

9. Iron and Wine – Beast Epic
Recommended Track: Song in Stone

8. Hiss Golden Messenger – Hallelujah Anyhow

6. Noah Gundersen – White Noise
