There's only one song on this list older than 2015. I've been rabidly searching for new music.
1. Joywave - "Destruction"
I love the intro.
2. Robert Ellis - "How I Love You"
Remember when Robert was on the podcast and talked about the new songs he was working on? Well, his self-titled fourth album came out on the 3rd.
3. Anderson Paak - "Come Down"
Paak's record sounds like if Black Messiah had been mixed properly. Really digging this.
4. Beck - "Dreams"
Beck blew me away at Mountain Jam. This was the song I had the most fun dancing to.
5. Nico Yaryan - "Witch Love"
It takes real talent to write a song like this. The lyrics are fairly simple, but the way Yaryan sings them sounds so genuine. What's most notable, however, is how you can hear the Beatles' influence, but unlike most artists' Beatles-inspired numbers, it doesn't just ape their style.
6. Will Joseph Cook - "Girls Like Me"
Discovered on Spotify. David Byrne vibes.
7. The Invisible - "Save You"
It reminds me of my favorite type of TV on the Radio song.
8. Flo Rida - "My House"
I don't listen to the radio, so I didn't know this was from last year when it came on in my friend's car. The keyboard that checks in at the one-minute mark is badass. I have a framed photograph of Flo Rida on my bedside table as a joke, but the joke's getting less funny with every spin of this tune.
9. Frank Turner - "Substitute"
I've been reading Frank's memoir The Road Beneath My Feet, and this is one of my favorite songs.
10. Band of Horses - "Even Still"
The pensive closing track off their new LP, Why Are You OK.
