Carrie Rodriguez's Lola is one of Alt.Latino's favorite albums of the year so far.

Is it almost July already?

We're halfway through the year, and we've already heard so much great music. So have our NPR Music colleagues, with whom we've presented our picks for The Best Of The Year (So Far) across all genres.

There's so much music and so little time, and it's always hard doing these kinds of lists, so do yourself a favor and consider this a jumping-off point. We're sure you'll like what you hear this week, and hopefully it'll lead you to even more discoveries. Enjoy!
