Check out the Critics’ New Discovery of the Year nominee playlist

I’ve decided to add a new tradition this year to the Penguin Eggs Critics’ Poll:  a playlist of the nominees for New Discovery of the Year.  This year, fewer critics voted for a new discovery, and when I went to tally them up, there was almost no overlap. And thus, we have a winner but no runners up.  But there was a list of artists deserving of more attention.  So please enjoy this opportunity to discover some great new voices.  (Note: one or two of the nominees were not on Spotify and are thus, not included in this playlist).
