There was too much to listen to in 2017—not just albums, of which there were once again thousands, a barrage of releases from major-label veterans and SoundCloud up-and-comers alike, all vying for your attention. There was just too much of everything: a persistent, buzzing storm of push notifications and free-floating panic that often made it difficult for any signals to break through the noise, or to retain whatever fleeting pleasures they yielded. It’s a year that’s often felt like 10, and you’d be forgiven for struggling to remember what, exactly, happened last week, let alone in the last 12 months.
