It’s finally slowed down on the submissions front and I’m in full-on “winding down” mode for this wonderful year of music. Like last year, you should expect a monster playlist of my favourite songs, but in the meantime, check out my “Class of 2015” post.
Looking back through all that was posted on IMF in 2015, I wanted to make a list of artists and bands who really turned my head and caught my ear. It ended up being a list of 10 (in no particular order) of artists that I think you should get to know, and keep track of as they tear it up into 2016. The list includes US artists Day Wave and Austin Basham, UK rising voices Jack Garratt, Ben Khan, Favela and The Japanese House, hometown heroes For Esmé and Brave Shores, also Montreal’s Foxtrott and Seoul.
*Note: Some of these artists were covered on IMF in 2014, or were popular before I first heard of them. This list is about the bands that came into their own, on this blog, in 2015.
