23. Night Beds – Corner

21. Rostam – Wood

 

20. Brett – Claire Drained

 

19. Gemini – Time To Share

 

18. Mu – Vampire

 

Bonus: Stark Sands with Punch Brothers – The Last Thing On My Mind

Recently watched Inside Llewyn Davis, so that’s why.

 

17. You Say Party – Ignorance

 

16. Zhu – In The Morning

 

15. The Chainsmokers f. Daya – Don’t Let Me Down

 

14. King Charles – Choke

 

13. Icona Pop – Someone Who Can Dance

 

12. Wild Ones – Dim The Lights

 

11. Wintersleep – Territory

 

10. Chemical Brothers – Wide Open

This sounds like Lisbon in the summer. I don’t know that sound yet, but I will soon…

 

9. Foxes – Cruel

 

8. Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez – We Don’t Talk Anymore

 

7. 5 Seconds of Summer – Jet Black Heart

Not sure they’d come close to “She Looks So Perfect” again. They have with this one.

 

6. Adele – Send My Love

Adele is all-powerful, so there is no audio available on Youtube. So in its stead, a pretty good cover of a really good song.

 

5. Allie X – OLD HABITS DIE HARD

Really talented songwriter. This is the gitch.

 

4. Sia – Move Your Body/Cheap Thrills/Broken Glass/House on Fire/Footprints

Sia is brilliant. Soooooo many hooks.

 

3. Jordan Klassen – No Salesman

I’m so thankful to have come across this haunting masterpiece. What a voice and what a melody. Wow.

 

2. Yeasayer – Prophecy Gun

Simply, one of the best bands on the planet. The chills. Always.

 

1. The 1975 – Somebody Else/A Change of Heart

The full versions of both of these mega-monster tunes aren’t available on Youtube, so the previews will have to suffice. It’s only March, but these will end up being two of the best songs of 2016, I have no doubt.
