Browse through the archives on The Bay Bridged and you’ll see that a ton of local artists released exciting new singles, EPs and albums this year. Over a hundred, in fact. We’ve already served up a podcast of thirteen Bay Area highlights from the year in local music, but here’s a playlist collecting songs from over 100 releases by local bands that we covered on The Bay Bridged this year. It’s a wide-ranging collection of indie rock, electronic pop, folk, and hip hop, but it’s a testament to the amazing talent pool we’ve got here in the Bay Area. Enjoy!
(P.S. Obviously, we were only able to include artists on Spotify, and, yes, for the nitpicky, a few Bay Area alumni who moved away are in here too. Finally, we probably missed some folks we’ve covered this year, so apologies to them! But enjoy the mix!)
