Staff Picks for the Best of 2016!

Another year, another year end list!  2016 was another great year for music.  We’d like to share with you our favourites of the year!

We had two ground rules for staff on this:
-Staff aren’t allowed to list Neptoon label releases.  Obviously we love them, otherwise we wouldn’t have put them out! (We didn’t release any this year, so it doesn’t apply anyways)
-No listing anything from your own label (meaning  Tim can’t list anything from Kingfisher Bluez, Ryan can’t list anything from Hockey Dad Records, etc), or your own band.

We’re still waiting to get everyones list, but here’s a couple to start.  We’ll add them as we get them.
