2016 Favorite Songs (Numbers 30-21)

Inching closer to the top of my countdown:

30. Solange ft. Sampha - "Don't Touch My Hair"

Stunning highlight from her masterful record A Seat at the Table.

29. Balance and Composure - "Postcard"

For me, this was a weak year for guitar based records, however, songs like this got me through.

28. The Big Pink - "Hightimes"

Fitting to its title, this song churns along on a druggy vibe.

27. Cubicolor - "One False Step"

Gorgeous electronica; love how the vocals and synths reach soaring heights at the end.

26. AlunaGeorge - "Hold Your Head High"

Awesome banger from the UK duo.

25. Broods - "Worth the Fight"

Touching song about trying to save a relationship.

24. Trentemøller ft. Jehnny Beth - "River in Me"

Gothy goodness.

23. Delorean - "Muzik"

All parties must come to an end, and this is the soundtrack to the Uber ride home.

22. Beyonce - "Sorry"

A literal middle finger to all cheating spouses, and the awakening of a new feminist anthem.

21. Banks & Steelz - "Can't Hardly Feel"

On paper, this collaboration should be a disaster, however, I was amazed at how many times I went back to this record and found something new. I love this lonely little track, and you just feel a palpable sense of loss.
