The almost-halfway-through playlist: Our favorite Louisville albums from 2017 so far

Well, we expected to have just nine or 10 local albums for this feature, but we easily upped it to 12 and still had to leave out a handful we wanted to include. We’re only a little over four months into the year, and the quality and quantity of records coming out of Louisville right now is outstanding — from melancholy folk, to atmospheric rock, to sharp hip-hop, to moody post-punk, to numerous other points of the genre map. Below are 12 of our staff’s favorite local records in 2017 so far.”
