It was a good year for music. From Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN." to Lorde's "Melodrama" to Vijay Iyer's "Far From Over," 2017 was a year filled with great albums from well-known artists.

But KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez (@anthonyvaladez) kept his own list of top music in 2017, including some lesser-known acts. In this week's DJ Session, Valadez shares his 2017 list with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson, which includes musicians SZA, Yaeji and serpentwithfeet.

Note: We have a Spotify playlist and an Apple Music playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions.
