Music Connection's Top 25 New Music Critiques of 2016

Music Connection routinely listens to and evaluates the work of unsigned and DIY recording artists for the New Music Critiques reviews in every issue. Below you’ll find what we feel are the cream of the crop––our 25 highest scorers, as well as an extra Top 20 Prospects whose talent and skill are just too special to overlook. Each score you see is based on the merits of production, lyrics, music, vocals and musicianship.
