After kicking Riot Act off in style with a podcast filled with some of the biggest names in music in episode 00, this week we cast our net into the furthest reaches of the musical landscape to bring you a dozen of 2018’s most exciting yet unheralded acts. There’s everything from gritty, earnest Americana to mind bogglingly savage tech-metal, and everything in between.
