Best New Music Discoveries of 2023

Best New Music Discoveries of 2023

Alrighty, time for my favorite new music discoveries of 2023!

Like every year when I post this list, let me clarify what I mean by “new music discoveries.” This is not necessarily only artists who first came out in 2023. This is one of the following three scenarios:

  1. A brand new artist who appeared on the national scene for the first time in 2023. (Example: Georgia)
  2. An artist who had their debut full-length album in 2023. (This is for artists who might’ve released EPs or was a part of a band previously, but never a solo LP.) (Example: Bethany Cosentino)
  3. An artist who I personally discovered for the first time ever in 2023. (Example: The Teskey Brothers)

Here’s the track list:

  1. Alex Lahey: You’ll Never Get Your Money Back
  2. Angie McMahon: Letting Go
  3. The Beaches: Blame Brett
