Discover New Music May 2017

I assign three ratings based on a critical acclaim, popularity (based on Spotify play counts), and my personal opinion. My top selections will show a gold star ★.  My other recommended new releases will be marked by a silver star ★ or bronze star ★. The tracks are listed in order of recommendation. Only the top tracks make The Short List. Find all the listenable tracks on The Long List.
