2016 Favourites: Top 10 Songs First Heard in 2016

2016 was a more musically lean year, so I'm just listing 10 songs I enjoyed this year in alphabetical order by band rather than ranking them against each other.

  • Bliss n ESO - Reservoir Dogs (2013):
    I got into Bliss n ESO from Hilltop Hoods and actually like them slightly better. This is a fun collaboration with several other Australian hip-hop artists.

  • Charlatans UK - So Oh (2014):
    I listened to a lot of the Charlatans UK a decade ago, and was happy to find their new album. THis is a relaxing, mellow song, great for winding down.

  • Drapht - Jimmy Recard (2009):
    This Australia hip-hop artist's voice is too annoying to listen to an entire album, but it's great in tiny doses.

  • Elle King - Ex's and Oh's (2015):
    This song is a country-tinged take on the type of "chicks with interesting voices" music I used to listen to in the 2000s.

  • Hilltop Hoods - I Love It (2011):
    You can't go wrong injecting Sia into any song. I also like that the song ends with a shopping list of cities that they love only to intentionally skip giving Zurich an endorsement.

  • Hoosiers - The Wheels Fell Off the Bus (2015):
    This album overall wasn't amazing, but I enjoyed this particular song.

  • Jeff Tuohy - Bourbon Street (2013):
    I like the fresh-feeling mix of jazz and rock in this song.

  • Misterwives - Our Own House (2015):
    This band does pure, distilled pop really well, and the singer's voice reminds me of Whitton.

  • Spose - Greatest Shit Ever (2015):
    Spose is very similar to Atmosphere, and I still can't put my finger on why I never got into Atmosphere but really enjoy Spose.

  • twenty one pilots - The Judge (2015):
    I know that this band is pure mainstream radio fluff, but this song has a catchy hook and a simple, effective composition.
