Since I refuse to use Spotify I can't do the #spotifywrapped thing, but here's my most played for the year. Basically it's just a mix between Hozier and Brandi Carlile.
I'll be back this weekend to get everything cleaned up and merged in, then upload our new strings for our translator community. Keep in mind Vocal should still be considered unstable, but I want to give everyone plenty of time for translations.

(And for anyone curious or concerned, I'm not changing jobs - it only adds about 15 mins to my current commute!)
