Summer Jams: Jeff Milo’s Favorite Tracks of 2019 (So Far)

Every year, I say the same thing: It gets harder and harder to corral my picks from the breadth of local music releases.

For so long, I’ve been keeping my ears trained toward the sounds produced primarily by songwriters and bands that area based around the metro Detroit area, but I also do my best to listen for sounds from farther-away cities like Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Port Huron and even up near Traverse City. 

On this long weekend, If you’ve got some time-off from work, consider spinning through this playlist, which is just a fraction of the great music released by local artists this year.
