Since the new year literally starts in 2 days, I thought to do a set centered on tunes from what Paste Magazine believes to be some of the best albums released within these last 12 months. I generally trust Paste’s recommendations as they formed a lot of the foundation of my music tastes. Plus I’m always down for a time of reflection on the best new tunes artists have to offer. 

Here are the songs from those albums that I personally selected:

  • “On The Floor” – Perfume Genius
  • “Up From a Dream” – HAIM
  • “Black & White” – Catholic Action
  • “circle the drain” – Soccer Mommy
  • “Gospel For A New Century” – Yves Tumor
  • “I Want You To Love Me” – Fiona Apple
  • “Dynasty” – Rina Sawayama
  • “Nada” (ft. Li Saumet) – Lido Pimienta
  • “!!gits! Weary!” – KeiyaA (E)
  • “Bittersweet” – Lianne La Havas
  • “Wildfires” – SAULT
  • “pulling the pin” (feat. Mavis Staples & Josh Homme) – Run The Jewels (E)
  • “Cut Me” – Moses Sumney
  • “Stand With Each Other” (feat. Ms MAURICE, Cassie Kinoshi & Richie Seivwright) – Nubya Garcia
  • “Please Don’t Hold Me Hostage for Who I Am, for Who I Was” – Thanya Iyer
  • “freequent letdown” – illuminati hotties
  • “Home” – Caribou
  • “Zenith” – Café Racer 
  • “Can I Believe You” – Fleet Foxes
