The best music of 2015

Listen 0:48:46

Guests: Dan DeLuca, Ann Powers

We conclude our “best of” week by looking back at the best music of 2015. With only a handful of songs dominating the radio airwaves, it’s difficult in the age of Spotify and other online music distribution services to figure out which artists deserve our attention, especially considering that this year saw many great releases from both new and veteran artists. To help us separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ll be joined by music critics DAN DeLUCA of The Philadelphia Inquirer and ANN POWERS of NPR, who will give us their picks for 2015’s most standout albums.
