If there was a soundtrack to my 2017, it would include all of the above artists and songs. It should come as no surprise that Incubus’ 8, Portugal The Man’s Woodstock, Macklemore’s Gemini, and Brand New’s Science Fiction are among my favorite albums released this year. Honorable mentions would be awarded to Thrice, Royal Blood, and Queens of the Stone Age for their new albums. Not included in my Spotify listening history are the Beetles and Soundgarden. The former for the remixed and re-edited version of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Club Heart Band that was released earlier this year and the latter because of Chris Cornell’s death back in May.
