December 1, 2016

And the list continues on.  Enjoy.

Part 1 is HERE.
Part 2 is HERE.
Part 3 is HERE.

PS – I got a ton of take down notices, so you’ll have to listen via Spotify.

20)  :Thee Oh Seees – Plastic Plant:  Out of all the music that Thee Oh Sees released in 2016 (two albums worth, to be exact), this track is my favorite.  Total jam.

19)  :King Khan – Never Hold On:  The normally noisy King Khan contributed this gem to the soundtrack for The Invaders.  He should do more slow burners.

18)  :Hazel English – Make It Better:  Here’s one that I’ve been glued to since I first heart it.  There’s just something hypnotic about Hazel English.

17)  :Chook Race – Sometimes:  If you’re all about jangly pop, then this one from Chook Race is a must-listen for you.

16)  :Tangerine – Sunset:  This infectious pop tune from Tangerine is totally something that more people should have been yammering about in 2016.

15)  :Terry Malts – Used To Be:  I’ve jammed the hell out of this Terry Malts song.  Those guys sure know how to write a hook.

14)  :Lucy Dacus – I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore:  I believe this one from Lucy Dacus was actually put out in late 2015, but I didn’t catch it until the re-release this year.  So it counts!  Anyhow, it’s a stellar track that drips with sincerity.

13)  :Car Seat Headrest – Does It Feel Good (To Say Goodbye):  This song by Car Seat Headrest is from the soundtrack for a short film called Loudini.  It makes me want so sit on a porch somewhere with a bottle of whiskey.

12)  :Nothing – ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder):  If you still need to get in some quality shoegazing before 2016 fully comes to a close, I highly recommend doing it with this Nothing song blasting in your headphones.

11)  :Fujiya And Miyagi – Serotonin Rushes:  You’re dead if you can listen to this Fujiya And Miyagi track and not want to dance or at least smile.

Quickdraw: Mind Spiders, Twin Peaks, White Denim, Tangerine, Yuck

Music!  Enjoy.

:Mind Spiders – Cold:  This new one from Mind Spiders is the best post punk song I’ve heard in who knows how long.  I can’t take it off repeat.  Prosthesis is due out March 11 via Dirtnap.

:Twin Peaks – Walk To The One You Love:  Twin Peaks have assembled a third full length, and this charming garage pop number is the first single off of it.  I like how comfortable it sounds.  Down In Heaven is due out May 13 via Grand Jury.  You’ll be able to see the band at Levitation in April/May.

:White Denim – Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah):  “I need you like bacon needs eggs.”  Even if this song wasn’t a total blast of retro-enthused fun, I’d still be into it because of that one lyric.  White Denim will release Stiff on March 25 via Downtown.  You can see the band this Thursday at C-Boys Heart & Soul.

:Tangerine – Sunset:  Whenever I listen to this song two things pop into my head – “What an infectious effort!” and “Why in the world haven’t I ever paid any attention to Tangerine?”.  The Sugar Teeth EP is due out February 19 via Swoon.

:Yuck – Cannonball:  Here’s a quickie (that’s somehow not a Breeders’ cover) from Yuck.  It’s fuzzy and loud, and I’m really into it.  Stranger Things is due out February 26.
