What a year for music. Don’t believe me? Then just look at the diversity of all the 2018 year-end Best Of’s. Taking a look at my list makes my heart swell & reminds me of why I still do what I do. The music, man - the music! Like Chelsey Cope at her very best or Skating Polly carving their names on my heart or Broncho when they toured with Billy Idol (I’m still jealous).

Ryan LaCroix, host of The Oklahoma Rock Show, shares his 10 favorite Oklahoma albums of 2018:

10. Gum - When the Water Hits the Moon

LISTEN: Tired Eyes, I Can Do What You Want Me To, Under Your Spell

That's where The Austin 100 comes in. Handpicked from thousands of bands playing at this year's festival, these 100 songs highlight the best SXSW 2018 has to offer — songs from around the world, across a broad spectrum of genres, sounds and styles.
