Sam’s Year End List – Songs

I’ve had the opportunity to write about some amazing new music this year: new artists, reinventions from old artists, and seeing some newer bands find a voice that they had been looking for since their debut. Finding only ten to make the list was difficult, but my number one was never in question; only one song this year grabbed me by the collar and demanded to be heard.


10. Sleater-Kinney – “Bury Our Friends”

9. Ryn Weaver – “OctaHate (Cashmere Cat Remix)”

8. Kevin Drew – “Good Sex”

7. The New Pornographers – “Marching Orders”

6. SALES – “Getting It On”

5. Speedy Ortiz – “American Horror”

4. Mr Twin Sister – “Out of the Dark”

3. TEEN – “More Than I Ask For”

2. Fickle Friends – “For You”

1. Ought – “Habit”
