I love this time of year because all of the year-end favorite music lists come out and I always discover a lot of great albums that hadn’t made it onto my radar. The list put out by [Other Music](http://www.othermusic.com/2005december13update.html) in NYC is one of my favorites and always contains lots of obscure picks. There’s some overlap here with what will be on my year-end list but also a ton of stuff I’ve never heard of. I made a playlist of the stuff I could find in Rhapsody from their Rock picks. I’ll post versions of their other genre lists later.
