sometimes i succesfully write these, most of the time i do not successfully write them. but somehow this list came together without much trouble thanks to bandcamp + actually saving notes throughout the year. some things i liked. it’s not really about ranking, just sharing. super far from comprehensive, but i hope it gives some curious people a few things to look into. i always enjoy looking at other people’s similar listies.
