*Arctic Monkeys “R U Mine” – Sounds like Black Sabbath. Need I say more
*Vampire Weekend “Diane Young” – I was pleasantly surprised by the first single from their new album. I’ll give them a Top 10 for this.
*John Murry “Southern Sky” – The sound of this song makes me feel like I am floating in the clouds.
*J Roddy “Marigold” – It’s just rock and roll done the way the fore-rockers intended it to be. I love these guys, almost to the point where they should have gotten a restraining order on me about 6 or 7 years ago.
* Eleanor Friedberger “Stare at the Sun” – Energetic and I dig the melody.
*Sally Ford and the Sound Outside “Party Kids” – I love the garage pop surfer rock, and they nail it.
*Junip “Your Life, Your Call” – Love those mellow sounds of Jose Gonzales and Junip
*Jake Bugg “Slumville Sunrise” – Rock and roll with a dash of Americana and a handful of English attitude.
*Icona Pop “I Love It” – my 8 year old stepdaughter makes me listen to pop music and I never got tired of this one.
*Blank – in honor of the song I really like but forgot about it. Yes it’s a cop-out, but it’s my list.
