Well, another 2017 has come to a close my friends and I can say with full confidence that while it has been a banger, I will be glad to send it off with a mandatory, awkward, New Years Eve Party. And by party, I really mean lounging around in my pajamas, eating mac n cheese, and watching movies by myself– we are all different y’all. Having joined the DS team back in April, this year has been a wild ride full of music journalism, writing, editing, and re-editing again. My life has been full of change (good and bad), new beginnings, and unfortunate endings but I think we can all agree that knocking back a couple together and gearing up for 2018 with anticipation for what’s to come is the best way to close out this shit show. Check out what my top ten albums of 2017 were below, pre or post party– your call.
