Share some song you’ve really loved this year, that people might not have come accross. Sorry if there’s some overlap with over threads.
Other than The Guardian where else does song of the year lists?
Don’t think anybody’s mentioned anything from Talons’ New Nightmares. Brutal pandemic album that’s soft and noisy at the same time.
Japanese punk / tom waits cross over… deserves way more listens than it has
Arabrot put out a really great album this year and this is the opening tune massive chorus and rock cool
Ailsa Tully - Drive
FFO slow sad indie like Sun June
Maripool - Blindness
Laid back, lazy jangly indie pop. The AA side, Emilio, is nice too
Nightshift - Power Cut
Bit of an early Deerhunter vibe
alexalone - Electric Sickness
Gabriel Bernini - Under All Summer
Nice slacker indie pop
Not sure what constitutes lesser known but this is probably my song of the year. certainly the one I’ve listened to the most. beautifully clipped electro pop song that has the british-stiff-upper-lip vibe of ‘behaviour’ era pet shop boys. love the wonderfully evocative backward guitar solo too.
Haven’t seen it mentioned on here along with the other track with Caroline Polachek I don’t think:
Can’t wait for the album love Murkage Dave Changed My Life…
They are probably too well known for this thread, but I haven’t really heard much mention of how brilliant this is. Probably my favourite music video of the year too.
