Top 10 Albums of 2023 – Bob Cosmo’s Picks

This was probably the craziest year of my life with the birth of my son, career change, and my dentist retiring. Hard to say if I gave enough music a shot this year to submit a worthwhile list, but the list must be made.

So many had to be left off the list; Spoon, Pachyman, Cleo Sol, Menahan Street Band, cities aviv, Gold Panda, Mach hommy, Aesop Rock, Bastien Keb, John Glacier, Young Fathers, Geese, african head trip, lorelle meets obsolete, ben sloan, lonnie holley, foans, and more. Maybe I did listen to a lot of music…
