#MotherMika Approves – My Favorite Projects of 2016

Featured#MotherMika Approves – My Favorite Projects of 2016

The following list is a compilation of a ton of fire ass albums, (in order of release date, not rank), because they’re all amazing.

There’s also a honorable mentions list at the bottom, with the more well-known albums I loved as well.

All project titles are hyperlinks, and all @ names lead to the artists twitter.

Tweet your favorite project I put you onto with the hashtag #MikaTaughtMe!

 

Needless to say, 2016 was an incredible year for music.
