Welcome to Miami.

Here, you can't be the kind of music snob who only listens to The Velvet Underground & Nico, Pavement's Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, and Pitchfork's current playlist on repeat.

Sure, all that stuff is awesome. But when you're running wild in the streets of the 305, the soundtrack's just wrong without a shot of street rap, neo-freestyle shit, a little Latin fusion, two doses of swag, some classic soul, sweet indie tuneage, house beats, and a blast of garage fuzz.

Thus, we present an unranked, sprawling, end-of-year list of Miami's ten best albums, EPs, and mixtapes. Check the cut for the full list so far.
