We’re barely a third of the way through 2017, but it already feels like a monster year for music. There have been veteran acts that lived up to their reputation, like Kendrick Lamar, Future, Drake, Ryan Adams, Slowdive, Aimee Mann, Mount Eerie, Spoon, Feist, and The xx, as well as plenty of rising acts that solidified their buzz, like Sampha, Perfume Genius, Jay Som, Julie Byrne, and Migos.
