We know, we know — it’s 2015 now. Like anything we do, though, we took our sweet time to finish this. So here it is: our annual digital sampler, a half year late! If you’ve downloaded any of our previous samplers, you might notice this year’s has a lot of tracks — we thought this was an incredible year for music and wanted to showcase the new, new-to-us or just downright exciting people making music that we’ve enjoyed this year (there are so many more artists we could and should include on this download but we had to exercise some restraint).
Curating and putting this together is super rewarding — so we just wanted to thank everyone who has contributed a song! If you download this and find something you like, please use this page as a reference to all of the artists involved (links to their respective websites and music are available below).
We’ve created two parts: “Family” — artists affiliated with the Topshelf Records roster, and “Friends” — artists we really think people should be listening to right now. Before downloading it, though, we just ask that you please, please share it (there’s two convenient buttons directly below). All of the hard working people responsible for all of this music would greatly appreciate it if you did. Thanks, everyone. Happy listening!

PS: This album is free. There’s no need to pay for it. However, since bandcamp gives you the option to, and if for whatever reason you do, we won’t keep the money; we’ll donate it to the Greater Boston MSPCA. So, thanks!
