Staff Picks: Favorite Albums of 2019 (Playlist)

As 2019 comes to a close, we’re looking back on all the fantastic music that was released this year. Some of it we were lucky enough to see performed live, some we weren’t… at least not yet.

Either way, we at Logjam, decided to pick our Favorite Albums of 2019. It wasn’t easy. There were a ton of great new albums that came out, but we did our best. The list happens to include a nice balance of genres too, including rock, reggae, bluegrass, country, jam, rap, pop, and electronic.
