It’s hard to believe it’s already halfway through the year. Time flies, but at least we’ve had some great music to keep us company through that long winter and week-long spring. Now it’s summer and festival season is already in full swing. I’m looking forward to getting some pictures over the next few weeks at Pitchfork and 80/35 that will make the end-of-year list of Best Photos. Til then, these will have to do
The best songs this year come from a wide variety of genres. Pop music has been getting more interesting and some artists that have been around for a while have found new life. Below, find my top songs of the year so far, in no particular order. I usually listen to it on shuffle.
For those that don’t already know, I keep a running “Best of” on the site at all times for albums. You can click at the top where it says “Records Of The Year” or you can follow this link. I can tell you, I haven’t heard anything better than Christopher The Conquered’s I’m Giving Up On Rock and Roll. He remains in the number 1 spot until I do.
