Starting this week, I'll start rolling out the 10 Aimless Skylarking Top Prospects for 2016. It seems like everyone calls their list, Ones to Watch, I opted for a baseball term -- top prospect. Anyway, if you've been reading here, there shouldn't be any surprises as most of the artists/bands are favorites. There is one holdover from last year's list though.
Last year, most of the artists/bands did not have a full length to their name, but that's not the case this year. That said, once again, the criteria for inclusion wasn't terribly stringent, just several artists with exciting things planned for 2016 and on.
Last year's Top Prospects included:
Shunkan, Our Girl, Pinact, BIRD, And the Echo, Lazy Day, Empathy Test, Harbors/David Shayne, Adia Victoria, and Bully.
All with the exception of BIRD released new music last year. The group disbanded late last year with a few of the remaining members forming a new venture with hopefully new music to be heard soon.
