WPTS Best of 2015 Countdown: Number 9!
After 12 months jam-packed with major releases from old favorites and surprising ones from newcomers, we at WPTS can honestly say that 2015 has been a stellar year for music. After polling the staff, here is our list of the Top 10 Albums of 2015.
Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment
First off, let’s get one thing straight: no, this is NOT a Chance the Rapper album.
He might be rapping on it, but so are tons of other artists: the features list is truly mind boggling. It’s really the work of Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment, a Chicago ensemble headed by trumpet Nico Segal. This means that you’re going to be hearing some sounds quite different from your standard mixtape. This is a jazz, soul, r&b, and pop record just as much as it is a hip-hop one. It’s hard no to resist the groovy charms and expansive vision of Surf, a truly collaborative effort that showcases some of the most talented musicians working today. – Stephen Wuchina
