Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: January 2018

Not a ton of music is released in December. Bands would most likely release their stuff in November or just wait until after the New Year to put out new music. It’s not a prime time for new music, since most people are just jamming to Mariah Carey’s Christmas album on repeat.

This month’s playlist took me longer to compile than most. I had to dig deep and found a few I overlooked the past two months. I found some gems and was worth the extra work.

I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter.
