Naturally, the listing continues on today. Check out entries 40-31 down below. 50-41 can be found right here. Enjoy.
40) :Big Grams – Fell In The Sun: Just in case you’ve been off on an adventure, Big Boi + Phantogram = Big Grams. Both are equally great here in this sparkly ear worm of a song. From the act’s self titled album.
39) :Kiiara – Feels: I came across Kiiara over the summer and instantly became a fan. This song is super hooky and wonderfully dramatic. From the land of one-off tracks.
38) :Ringo Deathstarr – Guilt: This one from Austin’s own Ringo Deathstarr is a big, catchy wave of distortion. Only listen to it with the volume cranked up high. From Pure Mood.
37) :Torres – Special (Garbage Cover): I’m not even sure how many times I’ve gotten lost in this spacious, six-minute cover of Garbage’s Special. Torres (aka Mackenzie Scott) really took the song and made it her own. From the land of one-off tracks.
36) :Car Seat Headrest – Something Soon: Car Seat Headrest signed to Matador this year, and then promptly remastered and re-released some older material. So, technically, this song is only partially from 2015. Regardless, I think it’s a very inspired tune and I love the angsty lyrics – “I want to sing this song like I’m dying.” From Teens Of Style.
35) :Deerhunter – Snakeskin: It still flips my brain around whenever I remember that the sometimes proggy, sometimes noisy rockers Deerhunter put out this funky, accessible number. Who knew they had it in them? From Fading Frontier.
34) :Bully – I Remember: This little two-minuter from Bully just rips. I think singer Alicia Bognanno sounds like a less obnoxious version of Courtney Love (the 90s version, not the currently burned out one). From Feels Like.
33) :Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires – Sweet Disorder!: I’m pretty sure I could toss this on a mixtape of nothing but classic rock tunes and no one would catch it as being from the year 2015. On another note, Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires is a great name. From the Sweet Disorder 7″.
32) :Mikal Cronin – Made My Mind Up: Another year, another charming pop song from Mikal Cronin that I can’t seem to get enough of. He completes me. From MCIII.
31) :Diane Coffee – Everyday: Shaun Fleming (Foxygen’s drummer) is the main brain behind Diane Coffee. This track is as soulful and retro as can be. From Everybody’s A Good Dog.
