Playlist: Episode #1021, Jan. 7, 2024: The Best of 2023 (leftovers)

On last week’s show and in a recent post on the website, I listed off some of my favourite music released in 2023, but in making the list, I realized that there were a LOT of releases, even by some of my favourite artists, that I just didn’t get to spend enough time with for one reason or another, so they didn’t make the main list. This episode aims to clean up some of the leftovers and check out some of the releases that somehow slipped past me in the past year.
