CHIRP Radio Best of 2018

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2018. Our next list is from DJ Mauricio Reyes.



#1   Care For Me by Saba (Self-Released)
BUY: Reckless / Amazon

Saba Care For Me"I'm so alone..." the first lyrics of Care For Me could have been the only lyrics on the album and 95% of listeners would have been like "I really felt those lyrics on that album" Luckily, we get a lot more than that. 10 tracks dealing with isolation, loss, grief and tragedy that Saba ultimately turns into a triumph. That's the power of music and how powerful Care For Me is. It brings us together. You are not alone.
