A Watched Clock Never Boils (the songs of my favorite 2015 albums)

The order here is musically determined (i.e., they’re not in any sort of ranked order). Also: I spent a bit of time getting the levels and segues adjusted – otherwise, of course, it’s easy enough nowadays to find these tracks individually. Given how easy it is to find them to listen to for free, I want to state that these are here to encourage you to actually, you know, buy these records if you like them.

Without further ado…
