When it comes to new indie artists, you’re more likely to find them in smaller studios.
But when it comes down to the studio-based bands that play live shows, a new indie label could potentially be a bigger deal than you’d expect.
A list of some of the best indie-style bands playing live shows can be found here , with some of these acts performing in the UK and Canada in the early months of the year.
We’re excited to announce our Top 100 Albums of 2018 list, which we think has the most potential for great music.
We’ve also included some bonus tracks that are available in Spotify and Apple Music, as well as tracks from artists like Lights and Halsey.
