12/14 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

It's time to start looking back on the year that was 2018. It was a really excellent year for music, in our opinion. The best-of lists started rolling out this week, with top picks from Pitchfork, NME, and Spin, so we decided it was time to get our lists together, so read on to see our full employee picks!

Of course, 2018 isn't totally done yet. Maybe there's something coming out in the next couple weeks that will wrestle its way into our hearts. This week is mostly about reissues. For example, we've got a grip of Primus reissues, a Motorhead box set, and a repress of Atmosphere's classic When Life Gives You Lemons. We've also got a cool release from Neil Young, Songs for Judy (different Judy), which collects 22 live tracks from Neil's 1976 solo tour. Check the full list below!

We also just got some major restocks on books, including the acclaimed Jeff Tweedy memoir, Let's Go, and other odds and ends. Be sure to cruise the books section for the bookworm on your shopping list. 

Alright, here are our top employee picks for the year, as well as a collaborative Top 10 list for store favorites!
