Best of 2016: The Locals Only playlist 2016 Recap

December 14, 2016

Every Sunday night, we broadcast the best music bubbling up from the Pacific Northwest with host Steven Graham on our local music program, Locals Only.

If there was ever a doubt that the Seattle music scene has slowed down or been overtaken by another region, let 2016 be the year that puts that thought to rest.

LISTEN: The best music to come out of the PNW in 2016

The year in music in the upper left U.S. was as diverse as it was quintessentially PNW. Electronic artists like Manatee Commune solidified their names on the national music map, while good ol' guitar rock with roots in Seattle's dingy grunge, yet to be surpassed by its burgeoning tech scene, broke through the noise with bands like My Goodness, Lonely Mountain Lovers and Sloucher.

Steven has his finger on the pulse of all things music, from Bellingham to Everett to Seattle and yes, even Portland. He put together a "Best of 2016 Locals Only Playlist."
