With all this talk about 2016 being such a horrible year, at least the music didn’t suck.
Here’s my Top 50, built from my collection of monthly playlists. Listen, like and share.
See you in 2017,
Australian starlet Phebe Starr has returned with a dramatic new single “Lavender Scars”; a track highlighted by melodic textures and Starr’s emotive vocals, that builds to expansive soundscapes.
She comments: “I wrote this song to honour the importance of freedom in the midst of grief… I was working alone in the studio when I received a text from a close friend of mine. Her father, who had a long struggle with illness, finally passed. I didn’t know what to say. Life hadn’t really prepared me to handle the harsh reality of loss in my own life or in anyone I was close to. Immersing myself in this moment of vulnerability helped me embrace the uncomfortable disconnect of experiencing someone else’s pain.”

March is statistically such a great time for new music, as you can tell by the size of this months’ group. I had to trim a few from the list, but what’s left, is the cream of the crop from the blogs last month. Tons of new discoveries including Romes, WILDES, Rostam, Teleman plus new tracks from IMF faves Anna Of The North, M83, Oyster Kids, Still Parade and Great Good Fine OK.
Australia-born/Los Angeles-based starlet Phebe Starr is back with new music, having revealed her new single “Feel My Love” this week. Co-produced by Rob Ellmore (Selena Gomez, The Veronicas, Zedd) and Starr herself, this track shows its massive build, with delicate harp arrangements to an anthemic, roaring peak. Take a listen to “Feel My Love” (for fans of Lykki Li, Lowell, Florence + The Machine).
