We're thankful for indie music!

 
As we already begin to close in on the end of 2022, we can't help but reflect on how grateful we are to get to highlight the incredible music that gets sent our way each and every day. We would be nothing without our artists and we are thankful for each and every one of you! This month we enjoyed the sounds of captivating singer songwriters, expressive electronica, dynamic alt-rock, and plenty more. Enjoy and happy listening!
