My top 40 records of 2015

This year was a good one for music. Admittedly, 2013’s Antenna to the Afterworld by Sonny & The Sunsets was the record I listened to the more than any other — a newer discovery for me, but thankfully I found time for a few others.

These are the new records I enjoyed the most in 2015.
