I am a music lover who grew up with old school rock music from the 50’s to present. Not to boast, but my music collection keeps growing every time I shop for decent CD’s and vinyl at independent record stores including Pure Pop Records. I relate to most of the music I listen to. They are autobiographical and are soundtracks to my life. Anyway, the albums I chose above are what I think are the best music of the year that you probably wouldn’t hear anywhere else, but your local independent record store.
