My Favorites of 2015

It's almost 2016, which means it's time for me to start making my list of new years resolutions that I definitely won't keep for longer than a week. Sike, (well, not really...) it's actually time to reflect on this past year in music. 2015 has been a pretty big year for me, I discovered some great new bands, saw some of the best live shows I have to date, and got to go to another Bonnaroo. Below are my lists for my favorite songs, albums and live shows of the year. Do we share any favorites? I'd love to hear what made your top.
