Just a quick aside. I'm happy to point out that Little Rock duo earFear made it to this year's list. It's the first time I've ever charted a regional artist in a year-end list. They recorded three albums (one of which being a 607 solo album) within an 11-month period. When you compare those albums to recent output by folks like G-Side and ASAP Rocky, both of whom likely ended up on countless year-end lists, you can make a good case that earFear deserves to sit among their ranks.



Here's a copyable list:
