Top 30 Records of 2015: Honorable Mentions

As with most years, I was unable to keep up with all of the new releases and thus there were some great records that I really didn't get to fully absorb and some that just didn't fit on my list.  In some cases these are records that are just a bit outside of my wheelhouse but are great nonetheless (Lights & Motion I'm looking at you).  People that say there's no good new music just aren't listening hard enough because there is a ton of great new music out there and these records prove that point.  I've included a playlist on Spotify for all but two of the releases listed (they weren't available).
