There’s no other way of saying it: 2017 was pandemonium. Every week, dozens upon dozens of albums were released, piling on top of each other, so that at the end of every month there was too much treasure to dig through. This can be related to a lot of things; the ever ascending rise of streaming services, the mountains and mountains of bedroom-based musicians reaching new summits of DIY accessibility, and the undeniable sense of impending doom pioneered by today’s politics. But no matter where you point your finger, it’s resulted in a lot of amazing albums flying under the radar and into the abyss of the unsung.
In an attempt to dig through the piles of this year’s amazing projects we’ve have curated a list of some of the most overlooked albums. From melancholy-drenched pop, to punk-soaked experimental hip-hop, here’s some undeniably amazing music that you may of missed or passed over too quickly.
