My EOY will begin at 6pm on Tuesday 23 February. I'm giving myradiostream another go this year (RIP plug.dj ) and will be in Discord on the night - memo me if you aren't already there and want an invite. Here's the link: http://myradiostream.com/station/flashplayer.php?s=s7&p=60084
(Alternate link: https://myradiostream.com/embed/free.php?s=brokenstream&btnstyle=default&id=580413&n=7&p=60084 )

I'll be unveiling #101-#250 as 20-second snippets (totalling about 50 minutes) and then #51-#100 as longer snippets before the top 50 will be played in full! I'll be revealing the lower half of my top 500 in the meantime in this thread

For a look into what might be in the top section of my list, my mid-year list can be found here and in my first thread: https://pastebin.com/2jCNfvfk

Edit: Here is a Spotify playlist of the full list starting from #500 & counting down: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6ZsVRk69ApfXhdTR9heaCt

Like last year I have a list of songs from the previous year that I enjoyed listening to in 2020. The list is very much without any defining qualifiers of inclusion because some of these songs have vastly different degrees of relevance to 2020 to others

0171 - 1000 Words
0171 - SMTHN RL
220 KID & GRACEY - Don't Need Love
Annie Hamilton - Kitchen
Arlo Parks - Paperbacks
Ava Max - Salt
DIIV - Like Before You Were Born
DIIV - Taker
Doja Cat - Streets
Doja Cat feat. Gucci Mane - Like That
Foals - Sunday
Hope D - Swim
KAYTRANADA feat. Durand Bernarr - Freefall
Nilüfer Yanya - Paradise
Nyxen - Insomnia
Poppy - Fill the Crown
Post Malone - Saint-Tropez
Sam Fender - Hypersonic Missiles
SASSY 009 - Maybe in the Summer
SebastiAn & Gallant - Run for Me
The 1975 - People
Tove Lo - Mistaken
Tove Lo feat. MC Zaac - Are U Gonna Tell Her?
TR/ST - Iris
Zoe A'dore - Galaxy

This list is less consequential than last year's since I already love most of these originals and featured all but two 2017 songs in my last two years of EOY lists but nonetheless, these are some of my favourite 2020-released remixes/alternate versions:

Allie X & Della Casa - Downtown (2020)
Angel Olsen - New Love Cassette [Mark Ronson Remix]
Angel Olsen - (Summer) Song (essentially an acoustic version of "Summer")
Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now [KAYTRANADA Remix]
Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia [Joe Goddard Remix]
Georgia feat. Yung Baby Tate - Feel It
Robyn - Honey [Avalon Emerson's Deep Current Reroll]
ROSALÍA - A Palé [Gesaffelstein Remix]
Tinashe & THEY. - Hopscotch
Tinashe & ZHU feat. Ms Banks - Die a Little Bit

2020 remixes I really liked will be littered throughout the list as always!

As a change from only revealing my favourite songs of the year in my long mid-year and yearly lists, I've wanted to do so in a slightly different way for a while, having long accepted that weekly charts just don't work for me with every occasional impulse that I have to attempt to revive mine (as much as I do wish I had an extensive chart history that spans more than one year ). I began saving all the current music I liked on Spotify in late 2016 and this has been my method of keeping up with everything since. Provided I don't accidentally un-save a song and remove it from its original place in date order (I feel like most Spotify updates make it increasingly easier to do this ), it makes it really useful to decide what ends up in my end of year lists. So I've decided to isolate the 2021 songs I've saved in each month of the year and rank the songs after the end of the month, which should be a nice touchstone for when I do make an EOY list. I like the idea of having everything grouped amongst songs I've saved at the same time rather than by release date, though it might expose how late I am to some things further down the line In a way it's like what a chart might look like from me without any songs returning for a second week.

To start I have 65 songs that were released in January 2021 that I happened to save, which is more than expected and is indeed more than the 46 2020 songs I saved last January (and the 50 in January 2019, 38 in January 2018 and... 14 in January 2017 :p). I've shuffled the order of the top 7 songs since the end of the month so I'd call it a strong start to the year!
January 2021

Commentary is less daunting without looking down the barrel of 100 or so songs so here goes... my first #1 belongs to Julien Baker's "Hardline". I liked boygenius' song "Bite the Hand" quickly (which I always seem to hear when I'm in IKEA lol) but I was surprised to find "Hardline" to be so instant after unfairly thinking the rest of her solo music would sound as kind of... stoic as "Appointments" (not necessarily a bad thing but it took me a while to get into it). This song sounds as precarious as its lyrics - there's something about those heavy organ chords at the start that make it so easy to just sink into its doom. It reminds me of "Breathe Me" in the release that comes with the instrumental chorus.
Last year I really warmed to Baby Queen's debut "Internet Religion", which I'm sure Spotify would sort alongside "Mad at Disney" or something but instead reminds me more of "Give Yourself a Try" [s]without Matty Healy's generally insufferable persona[/s] in how she dresses some scathing and depressing commentary in such a warm and fuzzy song. Her EP was quite solid ("Buzzkill" and "Pretty Girl Lie" were highlights), but her first single of this year "Raw Thoughts" is perhaps the most worthy follow-up to "Internet Religion", aptly matching its breathless energy and impressive lyricism.
I've keenly anticipated a full album from HUGE DANNY L Harle for a long time - his work across his two amazing EPs, one-off singles, production for other artists and remixes have made him one of my absolute favourite producers. Last year's "Dreaming" hinted at something harder and reminiscent of happy hardcore compared to the sugary-sounding singles he'd released before. "On a Mountain", one of the first tastes from the album, lands somewhere in the middle. Unexpectedly the vocalist is not co-writer (and "1UL" vocalist) Eyelar but Georgia Twinn, who delivered my second favourite song titled "I Don't Mind" last year (cue money/pole emojis).
London Grammar's 2017 album had enough really lovely songs on it to make me hold them in a higher regard than I'd previously thought and the singles from their new album have also been pleasantly interesting and quite distinct from each other. "Lose Your Head" has become my favourite so far, I really like the build-up of textures which makes the chorus sound almost chant-like.
A more recent grower in Odette's "Amends" is #5. It's her first in a while to resonate with me so strongly and I think it's down to the interesting twists in the melody and especially the chorus, which feels like it grows in intensity each time. The saxophone makes things all the more lush.
I've been a fan of Bicep's music from the second I heard "Glue", which is probably the perfect introduction to their sound. Their music is so sparse and repetitive that it could sound simple to some, but I love the indulgence in how the songs develop and their new album Isles certainly delivers on that front. Even after three of its best tracks were released last year, there are still highlights to be found in its new songs; my two favourites are album closer "Hawk" and "X" featuring Clara La San (of their previous collaboration "Saku" which was #79 in my EOY).
I think "Mariners Apartment Complex" marked a really important shift in Lana Del Rey's music because everything from her since has sounded so good. Even when I didn't find myself as intensely in love with NFR! as a whole as a lot of others did ("Venice Bitch" set too high a bar obviously) I think Jack Antonoff has more than proven himself to be a great collaborator especially in Lana's case. I'm quite looking forward to Chemtrails Over the Country Club (COCC if you will) if the title track is anything to go by. She has a knack for memorable choruses and "Chemtrails"' hook is really catchy and becomes more charming over its runtime.
Aly & AJ are demanding that we "Listen!!!" ahead of their new album When The Pawn Hits The Conflicts He Thinks Like A King When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go When The Fire Goes Out. "Listen!!!" is one of my favourite offerings from their solid recent string of releases and it sounds closer to their 2017 EP in sound (very pleasing to me as "I Know" from their EP is my favourite single of theirs).
I liked the previous two songs she's released since her 2019 mixtape but it feels like Slayyyter is properly back with "Troubled Paradise". It's more straight-forwardly conventional than maybe ever before for her but she's certainly not alienating me with a chorus as huge as this one.
Broods have returned alongside Bad Sounds in the very good sounds of "Move Into Me". I don't have much to say about it other than that it took me a while to place that the twinkly piano reminds me of Flight Facilities' "Two Bodies" and that Georgia Nott is one of my favourite voices (and people) and a worthy addition to anything. And that somehow "Hospitalized" is two years old.

Elsewhere: my favourite offering from Maggie Lindemann's recent pivot into pop rock (which is unexpectedly an Alex Lahey and Gordi cowrite), Mall Grab and Ross From Friends with quite long songs that I couldn't tell you how they sounded from the title but are very good, a fantastic new remix of one of my favourite songs from Perfume Genius' last album, Blanck Mass in unusually short form thanks to the single edit of new song "Starstuff" and ELIO's Charger (which already sounded like "Gone" before Charli XCX made a new version of the song) among other songs...

February 2021

This month Danny L Harle ranks two spots higher than he did in January with the immense "Interlocked" at #1 - his highest of six songs from Harlecore making the list this month. "Interlocked" was co-produced by "DJ Mayhem" (Hudson Mohawke) and has L Devine on vocals, as well as a writing credit from Lauren Mayberry of Chvrches (now that's a collaboration I'd like to hear, if only for harley's sake). Danny also claims #5 this month with "Do You Remember", which is appropriately titled considering how much it sounds at once like five different early 2000s songs that would have been uploaded on SteveAATW's YouTube channel.
KSHMR is a name I've known in passing for years without hearing much of his music other than Tiesto and his 2015 banger "Secrets"... or so I thought, because I recently discovered that he was one half of the Cataracs and the only member in the final two years of their activity (meaning that he is solely responsible for producing eternal Selena banger "Slow Down"). Ahead of his 2021 debut album I came across the lead single "The World We Left Behind" featuring his frequent collaborator KARRA and I've unexpectedly kept coming back to it. I don't know what to say about it other than that it's a total rush of euphoria.
The Best Band on Earth Wolf Alice are back. If anything can be learned from "Yuk Foo" and Visions of a Life, it's that their new album could sound nothing like the lead single and, to be honest, "The Last Man on Earth" being largely piano-led is perhaps even more of a disorienting return. I think there is something in the arrangement that admittedly holds me back from being wholeheartedly won over (as far as their own songs go I feel like "Silk" is a distant cousin which to me has the edge over this in how much more substantial it is in hooks from the start) but that feels unfair to get hung up on when Ellie's lyricism and presence is as strong as ever and when the second half of the song sounds as huge as it does. I also really like that the lyrics can read as this sardonic criticism of individualism while the song sounds so universal.
Like Danny, Julien Baker is in my top 10 for a second time: "Favor" is another very good cut from Julien's very good album, this time with her boygenius bandmates involved.
I called "Troubled Paradise" the most conventional that Slayyyter has sounded but "Clouds" is similarly quite straightforward if even more subdued - worlds away from anything like "Alone", "BFF" and "Candy" which I first encountered her through but nonetheless a direction I can get behind.
Franky Wah had two songs in my 2019 EOY ("Time After Time" and "Hide") and he's kept up the good work and general resemblance to CamelPhat with Anjunabeats release "Should Have Seen It Coming" featuring AETHO.
Not even a year after her first solo album, Hayley Williams has released another album and it's quite good, perhaps without the same variation in sounds as the first (it's very acoustic). The single (or the song put on 'the playlists') "My Limb" is something of an outlier and is naturally my favourite song on it, it reminds me more of "Over Yet" on the last album with the fast chorus.
I first came across Norwegian Sámi band ISÁK in 2018 via Popjustice's New Music Friday playlist featuring their song "In Comparison" and have liked their music since, including their previous collaboration with Alan Walker in 2018 on the song "Lonely" (which Steve Aoki did a new version of in 2019 which has just about double the streams of the original). Their new collaboration "Sorry" is really impressive and less characteristic of his usual style (honestly, "The World We Left Behind" sounds more like him), I was surprised to see it released as a commercial single.
I'm yet to know for sure if Allie X is officially releasing her older songs as a project or anything but I do know for sure that her 'new' single "GLAM!" was intended for her debut CollXtion I and it certainly sounds like it. Her music is so reliably solid across the board that there's at least one song I really love on all four of her projects but after getting less out of last year's Cape God than I expected, particularly after "Fresh Laundry", it's nice to hear a 'return' to the full-throttle synthpop of songs like "Prime" and "Sanctuary" from CollXtion I.

Elsewhere, Madison Beer delivers a very impressive debut, perhaps unexpectedly to anyone who hadn't heard the pre-release songs or to those who only judged her by whatever her conspirators on TikTok have incriminated her for ("Blue" and "Effortlessly" are my favourites of the new tracks); Gorgon City & DRAMA reunite after last year's brilliant "Nobody" with "You've Done Enough" which I was happy to see quickly make the UK chart (and more recently/importantly the ACI ~); Katy B's first high-profile release since 2016 (!!!) in a vocal mix of Mercury Prize-nominated jazz drummer/composer Moses Boyd's "2 Far Gone" (a really good fit for her). Dua Lipa's "That Kind of Woman" is #28 after the anachronistic Jacques Lu Cont remix placed one spot higher in my 2020 EOY.

I've capped the list at 100 songs because I saved slightly more than that in February, and I think I'll cap each list at a round number when they exceed 100 songs from now on. I'm also going to aim to keep the posting of the monthly lists within the next month so watch this space

March 2021

My plan for getting the next monthly list done in the immediately following month was unsuccessful once again I've had the actual list ready for like two weeks but I've been busy and have really procrastinated in making my commentary coherent - I'd have probably have ditched it altogether if this wasn't the most excited I've been so far about my list's top 10! I also have 140 songs in my list this month (yes I can be busy and still listen to too much new music for my own good), so the year is properly in full swing

#1 is Ivy Rose's "I've Been Watching You", which I came across on the triple j Hitlist without having heard of it/her previously. It's one of the most impressive debut singles I've heard in recent times and a frustrating case of not being able to pinpoint what it is that it sounds so much like other than that it's vaguely '80s. My best guess is that it sounds like a Bonnie Tyler song, whereas her voice's inflections otherwise remind me of LAUREL. Since Ivy is American, it turns out that her triple j relevance is justified by this song's producers being Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes of Pnau. Nick's wife stumbled upon Ivy's YouTube covers (the oldest of which is of "Fade Into You", the most recent is of Lil Peep's "Falling Down" [s]maybe she's the original voice of Gaullin - Moonlight[/s] with numerous Radiohead, Lana and Daughter covers in between) which led to Nick and Peter producing her upcoming EP.
Speaking of Lana, a close #2 is "White Dress", which made a solid first impression but has really won me over in the past two months like the Chemtrails album on the whole. Even with the strange controversies she seems to invoke (which, if I'm going to weigh in, seem mostly innocuous other than the 'question for the culture'), I was surprised to see this album met with such a muted response after the overwhelming critical consensus that NFR! got. To my ears Chemtrails is sonically within the same world and after revisiting it I (probably unpopularly) find it to be just about as good on the whole I will say I wouldn't feel the same enthusiasm if it wasn't for how fucking good "White Dress" is though. I really like her vocal approach and like "Chemtrails" (song), it's the song's endless succession of hooks that keep me coming back (to the Men in Music Business Conference).
Laura Mvula is someone I've always felt I should make more of an effort to become more familiar with ("Overcome" alone is reason enough) and her two new singles "Safe Passage" and "Church Girl" really confirm my need to do so. Both songs draw from familiar, vaguely '80s sounds while feeling distinctive and structurally free, which I really like. "Church Girl" is safely my favourite of the two, the chorus is sublime.
I only got around to listening to Jazmine Sullivan's [s]glorified EP[/s] album in March and my main takeaways were that I should have had "Lost One" much higher than #347 in my EOY and that the song I had to hear again after was "The Other Side". Jazmine's voice is a force in itself but it's the nostalgic quality of that song's melodies (again without reminding me of anything in particular) that draw me in so much. Lyrically it feels like a feature-length film in a single song.
Boys Noize, Kelsey Lu and Chilly Gonzales are a trio of artists I don't know quite enough about off the top of my head to provide that much background on but I don't think I'd have foreseen this collaboration based on what I've heard from the first two. Nonetheless I've come to really love their collaboration "Ride or Die", particularly when it all kicks into gear about halfway through.
Sega Bodega racked up four entries in the top 100 of my EOY last year with three songs he produced on Shygirl's amazing ALIAS EP and his own song "Make U Stay". He's made another big impression on me with his production on Donna Missal's new song "sex is good (but have you tried)", which is far more understated than the aforementioned songs but has really captivated me the more I hear it thanks to Donna's delivery.
I listened to Japanese Breakfast's 2017 album at the time (probably because it's quite short) and I liked it without returning to it much outside of "Machinist" and "The Body Is a Blade". Ahead of her new album I'm a lot more excited based on "Be Sweet" and her April-released new song "Posing in Bondage" (this is the weird part of finalising these lists so long after the actual releases of these songs because follow-ups have already been released by this point ).
Like Laura Mvula, Mykki Blanco is another artist whose songs I know and guest appearances elsewhere have had me waiting on a new project to have a proper entry point into their music for quite a while. They have such a commanding, disarming presence which is exhibited very clearly on the very fun "Free Ride" (produced by FaltyDL & Hudson Mohawke, who continues to be peripherally involved in my lists). It's maybe a little too short for its own good - I wouldn't argue with the 'what I wouldn't do for love' chorus being repeated a few more times.
I can't say I've been as interested in Julia Michaels' solo career as I was in 2017 (particularly after the completely overlooked "Uh Huh") but last year's "Lie Like This" was a real return to form with the very reliable Monsterz & Strangerz on board. They've also produced the follow-up in "All Your Exes", which starts out less excitingly but really delivers in the chorus - the switch-up is much appreciated.

April 2021

Little Simz angles for a third consecutive top 100 appearance in my EOYs with "Introvert", which actually might have already outranked her previous entries "Wounds" and "where's my lighter". I really love how she treats the music with the same vitality that her lyrics and delivery have, and though it feels banal to call this song cinematic, it's definitely less insular than her last two projects have been. She's not credited as she usually is but Cleo Sol's hook is a highlight each time it returns.
As I mentioned last month, Japanese Breakfast's "Posing in Bondage" is very very good. I listened to the shorter, demo-like version she released in 2017 and this new version sounds otherworldly in comparison. There's a lot of interesting elements in the production which are put into sharpened focus as the track develops - I think this song on its own warrants her comparison of the album to Homogenic (though I'm not so sure about the rest of the album... but I'll get there in June I guess).
The last two pre-release songs from Aly & AJ's May-released album "Symptom of Your Touch" and "Don't Need Nothing" are easily my two favourite tracks on it. I think the album needs a few more knock-out tracks on that level for me to have the same enthusiasm that a lot of others have for the album but it's cohesive and solid as per usual.
Like Marina and Bonnie Anderson before her, this is not Slayyyter's first time at the rodeo or her first time in the top 10 of these lists, and I think "Cowboys" is my favourite of the singles from her album. On first listen it was the unexpected turn in the melody on 'rodeo' that had me instantly sold but more listens have revealed the really fun lyrical moments scattered through the song.
Laura Mvula and Aly & AJ aren't the only ones with double entries in my top 10s; Doss is a newer name to me who joins them with "Puppy" and "Strawberry" (and "Look" further down). "Puppy" is the euphoric, trance-inspired sound that I feel like I've tried to hear in Porter Robinson's music (probably an unfair comparison) whereas "Strawberry" really surprised me by sounding more like an electronic trip hop song.
I think I put Xiu Xiu's "A Bottle of Rum" too low in my February list but they can make up for it with "Sad Mezcalita" from their new album ending up so high this month. It features Sharon Van Etten who I admit to being very unfamiliar with but who I think I prefer in darker tracks in the vein of this and Hercules & Love Affair's "Omnion", which was the first song I heard her voice on.
A similarly moody, spoken-word-featuring top 10 entry comes from Real Lies' "Late Arcades", who have very much been delivering in the moody, spoken-word electronic music department with "White Flowers" in 2018, last year's amazing "Boss Trick" (which I only heard recently) and this year's "Oh Me, Oh My (Nicotine Patch)"; needless to say I hope they continue doing so.
Closing out the top 10 is Sydney-born artist THE BLOSSOM, who made a promising first impression on me with "CLOVES". I feel like their music has a lot of crossover potential and a BROCKHAMPTON member featuring on their EP makes a lot of sense in that regard.

May 2021

Admittedly this might be my weakest month of these lists so far but I still have quite a long list for May. I'll try and get June done sooner rather than later because as always I'm really looking forward to doing a mid-year chart.

Prospa's "Ecstasy (Over & Over)" was one of the more distinct dance tracks that were able to break into the UK chart last year (I'd forgotten it made #77 at all really) and their latest single "WANT NEED LOVE" is quite special. Like "Ecstasy" it has a singular chorus but it manages to achieve a lot in its runtime to make up for it. It reminds me a lot of "Another Chance" down to the two kicks before the final section.
I've really enjoyed Agnes' recent singles, which could quite easily be filed alongside Dua Lipa and Jessie Ware's recent material (though "Fingers Crossed" skews more towards Ava Max to the extent that you could sing the chorus of "Kings & Queens" over it and it would fit). 2019's "I Trance" hinted at something more self-indulgent, however, and her new song "24 Hours" certainly leans into that Junior-era Röyksopp synthpop sound.
MØ properly returns with "Live to Survive" which... sounds a lot like the Agnes song. I found her last album to be very solid and I really like that she's so chameleonic, but I have no issues with her following in the direction of straightforward pop songs like this one.
Admittedly I'm quite cynical towards the recent resurgence in popularity of pop punk when the mere mention of Paramore automatically garners 100,000 likes/reblogs but for the most part, the songs are usually good in their own right. In the case of WILLOW's [s]"t r a p s o u l"[/s] "transparent soul", the execution is as accomplished as her pivot to this sound is smart (and generally more interesting - from what I've heard I don't think her previous non-"Whip My Hair" material is for me). The fast verses and huge chorus are hard to resist and the vocal performance is really fantastic.
Somewhat in the same territory is girl in red, who I also prefer in huge chorus mode as evidenced by "rue" landing in my top 50 of 2020 and the quirkier "Body and Mind" being an instant favourite on her debut album (beyond being the playlisted track on the album release week).
Sydney sister duo CLEWS have been on my radar for quite a while and "Overluck" is their best offering so far. They seem to have a knack for memorable choruses and this is another one.
The more I hear of Erika de Casier's recent music, the more I'm made aware that I should have gotten into her music months ago. I've taken the most instantly to the Sade-sounding "Someone to Chill With" so far.
I've realised that my greatest issue with MARINA's music since Love + Fear was the songs themselves, considering that "Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land" instantly became my favourite song of hers in years by just... sounding like "Mowgli's Road" or maybe more specifically like "Personal Jesus". The social critique in her new songs leaves a bit to be desired and I'm honestly not sure what she's really getting at on "Ancient Dreams" but the song (especially the post-chorus) has the playful, whimsical hallmarks of her best material.

June 2021

This is the longest monthly list I've posted so far with 160 songs, and its top 50 or so is probably the strongest in quality, with tracks from a number of long-awaited album releases in the mix and an influx of other 2021-released music I had feverishly tried to catch up on ahead of the mid-year cut-off (that I take very seriously ). I'm posting this in September but the order of the list is closer to how I was feeling during June.

My most anticipated album in recent times is Wolf Alice's Blue Weekend. Following an album as personally monumental as Visions of a Life was for me, I was fearful of it not meeting the colossal expectations I'd set for it; fortunately Blue Weekend absolutely manages to. It was "Heavenward"'s single release that assured me that Visions was going to be something special in 2017 and while I didn't quite have a moment like that with any of Blue Weekend's promotional singles, I did rather instantly with "How Can I Make It OK?", which happens to be their next single and has quickly asserted itself as my favourite track on the album. Wolf Alice have their share of all-encompassing, anthemic tracks but there's something unique about how the song evolves with such bracing intensity.
"Feeling Myself" was the second song that really stopped me in my tracks on my first listen of the album, which particularly surprised me because the mention of the song in their writeup for NME made it seem like it would be a bit more... obnoxious or literal lyrically. I don't know why I doubted them, because instead it's one of their most sonically ambitious songs, and the release of beautiful sound after the second verse is immense. It feels most reminiscent of the atmospheric quality of "Soapy Water" from My Love Is Cool - a very welcome development in their canon.
"Delicious Things" feels like a new side to Wolf Alice that as always testifies to Ellie's talent for lyrics in how it depicts the precarity of an experience of LA in a vivid but also kind of humorous way. "Lipstick on the Glass" was apparently one of the most difficult songs to complete but I'm so glad they refined it as much as they did (though I'd love to hear the more electronic-sounding version too!). "The Beach II" is my favourite of the two "Beach" bookends and "Safe from Heartbreak (if you never fall in love)" is personally the strongest of the album's shorter tracks, the harmonies are really compelling.

Something of an unforeseen challenger to Wolf Alice's general dominance of the top section of this month came from Spellling's "Boys at School", which is fantastic in the literal sense and otherwise and struck me as something special on first listen. This song and her album fill a void that I feel like Let's Eat Grandma left in 2018 with their sprawling, experimental, emotional and crucially very long tracks, coincidentally as LEG basically soundtracked my anxious last year of school (I very much share the sentiment!).
I should revisit Japanese Breakfast's album because I found it a bit hit-or-miss on first listen but knew to revisit "Sit" as soon as possible after. It could well be my favourite song of hers, I absolutely love the shoegaze-y guitar sound.
Like Christine and the Queens last year with La vita nuova, my reigning EOY champion Yves Tumor has wisely and quickly followed up Heaven to a Tortured Mind with a very solid EP. Track 1/lead single "Jackie" is a total stomper that sounds like "Kerosene!" fused with the percussive element of "Noid" or "Gospel for a New Century".
It's a bit of a shame that LAUREL has seemingly split what would have been a remarkably solid second album into two EPs but her single choices from the EPs have been on point. "Wild Side" is right up there with "Scream Drive Faster" and certainly reminds me of the latter in how every verse feels as much like a hook as the chorus does.
Another excellent pop song from Baby Queen comes in "American Dream", which happens to feature Australian MAY-A. I'm really impressed at the efficiency in which she's had consistently great new material come out.
I like "He Said She Said" a lot but like "Death Stranding", "How Not to Drown" feels like Chvrches in their element of formidable, dynamic synthpop, which I'm pleased means longer runtimes these days. I think Robert Smith was involved at a later stage in this song but its darker edge (specifically the last minute and a half) sounds like his direct influence - it's all very welcome, my favourite Cure songs are the darker-sounding ones.

Very close are the two very good singles from Jax Jones' new EP ([s]"When Love Takes Over"[/s] "Crystallise" in particular is so good with a truly odd, ill-fitting drop), the clear standout on Planet Her in "Need to Know" (the album is fine but decidedly not as strong as Hot Pink for me) and the "Alone"-sized banger from Slayyyter in "Villain".

July 2021

Tinashe has the productivity that I associate with artists like Charli XCX and Lana Del Rey (moreso recently since she's been releasing music independently): her new album 333 is her ninth album-length release in the last ten years. Her quality control has set a really high standard when it comes to new music and, while I wasn't as keen on the album's lead single, the follow-up "Bouncin" instantly captured me, what with its instrumental being so reminiscent of Megan Thee Stallion's "Don't Stop" and its addictive, wordy chorus. It definitely stacks up against her best singles and videos - that somehow synchronised choreography on the mini-trampolines is so much fun.
Thank you to villages for Deafheaven's "Great Mass of Color", which was unlucky to miss out on making my mid-year because I saved it in the first few days of July after hearing it for ACI. I really have no reference point for this kind of music other than... maybe De(a)ftones but this song has no shortage of compelling melodies and textures. I love how it goes all out in its last minute - the track is so well-paced that the last minute feels as momentuous with every listen.
More than her previous output, Peggy Gou's "I Go" faithfully reincarnates '90s house that its bassline and chord progression sounds like "Rhythm of the Night", "Sweet Dreams" (La Bouche), "Mr. Vain", "More and More" and even "Into the Groove", which is to say I completely welcome it. I love her luxurious, tasteful style of dance music (and her single art continues to be sublime).
Last year, Poppy's "Fill the Crown" was a top 50 contender in my 2020 mid-year...until I realised it was released in December 2019. I've never really paid attention to her YouTube videos (which I think she's better known for) but I've generally liked her music, particularly as it's moved in a more electronic/nu metal-inspired direction. Her new single "Her" is less electronic-sounding than "Fill the Crown" but rather hits a Metric/Cherry Glazerr sweet spot for me.
Billie Eilish's second album is decidedly stronger than her debut for me. I don't necessarily think the album is even that much of a departure from the music she's made before, it feels more like she's really refined her songwriting and emphasised the more dynamic elements from her previous material. Only the title track, "Oxytocin" and "NDA" feature this month because of its July 30 release, but more is to come from the album next month! It goes without saying that the second half of "Happier Than Ever" is amazing, it's pure catharsis.
I'm not sure what's going on with Normani, whose team ostensibly believes that the way to establish her as a solo artist is leaving extensive gaps between single releases (it's almost more baffling considering the eventual success of Camila's 'throwing singles out and seeing what sticks' strategy in 2017). I love most of her...five songs as a lead artist though - "Wild Side" returns to the slinky, sparse sound that she was doing really well on "Waves" - it definitely helps with a sample as mesmerising as "One in a Million".
I've really enjoyed the energetic tracks that Pond have released this year but "Toast" has become my favourite of the singles, probably mostly because of the breezy Roxy Music-esque guitar line that runs through it.
I still can't really put my finger on what I found so disappointing about Solar Power (song and album), but there's something kind of alienating and uninspired about Lorde's perspective on the album that bewilders me because Melodrama has such vitality in its songwriting and production. I don't think Solar Power is all bad, though, and in fact I've grown to love "Stoned at the Nail Salon", which is probably the most successful at communicating her disaffection.
TDJ and fknsyd's "Open Air" is a collaboration of keyboard-mash artist names that I'd previously not heard of and the kind of minimal dance music I'll always love - in fact, the piano in it reminds me of Minimalistix's "Close Cover". It otherwise sounds like late-2000s Kaskade/Adam K & Soha's remixes down to the ~ethereal angelic~ vocal trance vocalist.
Thank you to 392 and Zacco for getting me into Fluir's "Only One" many years later. Her new single "Better Off Alone" is not a cover but it's firmly in "Only One"'s wheelhouse of dreamy, melodious electronic pop.

September 2021

This is quite possibly the strongest month for the top section of these lists: this is a very close top 4. I liked "Heat Wave" a lot in 2018 but, quite like "Ohio" for King Princess, "Valentine" is something of a reinvention that blows the rest of what I've heard of Snail Mail's music out of the water. I love the lyrics, and musically it's all about the contrast between the mellow verses and the huge chorus.
Let's Eat Grandma are properly back - I must have summoned them by comparing "Boys at School" to them in my commentary. They're as sweeping and epic as ever in "Hall of Mirrors".
At this point I should pretend that Poppy's new album Flux is Sky Ferreira's second album (which I also hope I can summon into being released soon since apparently it does exist and its songs sound like Tears For Fears, so I'm going to die when I hear it if I don't before it's released). I didn't initially catch that Flux was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (as was the new Deafheaven album), who I was made aware of after he produced Visions of a Life and Metric's Art of Doubt but, as Wikipedia reiterates, he's also been involved in... most songs and albums I love, I guess. The standout track on Flux is the storming "As Strange As It Seems".
I've come across Magdalena Bay a few times via Popjustice's NMF playlist without anything sticking in a big way, but this year "Chaeri" piqued my interest as something markedly different from the H&M In-Store Playlist-ready kind of synthpop sound I'd heard from them before (not a bad thing!). Two singles later, "You Lose!" immediately became my favourite of theirs, what with the frenzied instrumental sounding like the soundtrack to a Pac-Man game from hell. Their new album is probably one of the best pop albums of the year for what it's worth.
"Good Ones" is probably the most a solo Charli song from the past two years has sounded like it could be a huge hit but naturally it's infinitely more interesting than any of the recent "Blinding Lights" replicas (including Oscar Holter's own replicas) because it sounds like "Mirrors" by Natalia Kills crossed "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)". I'm sure there's even better on the album but in the meantime it's a fantastic single.
Banoffee's 2020 album Look at Us Now Dad is a really solid collection of well-written and quirky pop songs that would quite easily slot into a playlist with, well, any of the above four artists. She's followed it up with a new EP and its third single "Never Get to Fuck Any1" has become my favourite track of hers to date.
After unfortunately not really getting into her efforts last year, Foxes' "Sister Ray" is a welcome shift and distinct enough from other post-"Dancing on My Own"/"Run Away with Me" pop songs in the same vein (though I wouldn't say this is exactly going for the same feeling) purely by how exuberant and fun the production is.
I'm surprised Little Mix didn't opt for "Between Us" to lead into their Greatest Hits album but I'm not complaining that the effervescent "Love (Sweet Love)" was released instead (unfortunately to little success compared to their last few singles nn); after all I'll always prefer their high-energy tracks because they're the ideal girlband to carry out songs like this. In that way it reminds me a lot of "Bounce Back" except instead of a Soul II Soul sample there's an interpolation of a... Morcheeba album track? I believe their insistence that they'll be back, but in the meantime hallmark Little Mix bangers of this quality will be sorely missed.
South Africa's Sun-El Musician continues to make sublime house music. "Higher" featuring frequent collaborator Simmy (their 2018 collaboration "Sonini" is stunning) is another glowing illustration.
UNIIQU3 is a name I've known for a while and I think the dizzyingly "Microdosing" was the right song to get me into them, thanks to Clinton nominating it for ACI. Their Heartbeats EP is really fun too. It'd be interesting to see a Big Freedia-esque rise of their profile after their song "Off the Chain" with TT The Artist was sampled by Chlöe's "Have Mercy" (which features a little lower in the list).

Also very close: a couple of songs from the wall-to-wall banger affair that is the Boys Noize album, one of my favourite Sofi Tukker singles in the insidious grower "Sun Came Up", a new Placebo single(!), finally a 2021 Sega Bodega track of his own to rank amongst his other excellent productions this year, and my favourite of the leftovers from last year's Annie album.

October 2021

Close to a year after I first heard and quickly became obsessed with Eartheater's song "Volcano", she has released a new song called "Scripture", which is another slightly earth-shattering song in its own right. It was produced with the prolific Sega Bodega which explains the slight shift away from the acoustic foundation of her 2020 album Phoenix toward a more electronic sound without losing any of the intensity and sweeping vocal melodies that seem to be her trademark.
After Let's Eat Grandma returned to claim my #2 of September, it looks like Mitski is the artist I strongly associate with 2018 to return and claim my #2 of October with the brilliant "Working for the Knife". Her songwriting is always striking but it's how she puts it to melody and how she and Patrick Hyland construct these intense musical vignettes for each song that makes her so distinct and one of my favourite artists making music at the moment. The volatile percussive edge to the production on "Working" is so promising to hear considering that dulling the sonic aspect of her music could have been an easier route to more mainstream appeal.
Keyboard-mash artists TDJ and fknsyd are back with a second collaboration for TDJ's SPF Infini compilation/"audiovisual experiment led by TDJ celebrating the 'hot girl summer' spirit". "Euphoria" is its title which encapsulates very well what listening to it feels like.
I don't know much about Danish producer Trentemøller other than that he makes very good songs with women from bands - "River in Me" featuring Jehnny Beth from Savages and "Hands Down" featuring jennylee from Warpaint are two songs of his that I love. "All Too Soon" from his upcoming sixth album is decidedly within the same sound world; though I'm not familiar with vocalist Lisbet Fritze, her ghostly vocals have a familiar quality to someone like Ruth Radelet from Chromatics (who I'm sad to see have called it quits ).
Australian singer CXLOE seems to consistently produce robust pop songs that sound like they'd have 5x the streams in the hands of better-established/international artists. I hope she keeps them coming because I love her voice, and nonetheless, she's released my favourite song of hers so far in the massive "Close", which sounds a little like Charli/Christine's "Gone" and bülow's "SAD AND BORED".
Speaking of Australian singers, I was stunned to discover that, in the deluge of soundtrack songs and perfunctory collaborations and castoffs from bigger popstars (some of which make up the soundtrack to her own film), Sia has now collaborated with Arca on the sequel (of... four sequels) to KiCk i, one of my favourite albums of last year. I don't think Arca's choice of collaborator went down well with her fanbase but I actually love the collaboration; for whatever reason Sia's archetypal ballad melodies and lyrics sound really quite impenetrable against one of the more bracing tracks on KICK ii.
One of four songs to feature Claudia Kane (whose voice is a dead ringer for Susanne Sundfør's voice) on Maya Jane Coles' new album Night Creature is the brilliant "True Love to the Grave", after their 2020 collaboration "Run to You" came in at #85 in my 2020 EOY.
Alewya is a really promising new artist who, in the space of a few singles, has revealed herself to be chameleonic in how she cuts across different dance genres while still commanding each track. I think "Play" is my favourite solo single from her so far thanks to the sleek, addictive melodies.
Shygirl's "Cleo", produced by Jakwob and Sega Bodega, is not exactly reinventing the wheel - it's a coincidence that the song she remixed on Dawn of Chromatica was "Sour Candy" because both resemble [s]"Swish Swish"[/s] "What They Say" - but it sounds so luxurious.
Metronomy released a really brilliant EP of collaborations recently and their collaboration with Sorry, "Out of Touch", is my favourite track. It sounds like if the introduction to "Live to Tell" sounded more disoriented.

November 2021

Like "Valentine" for Snail Mail, "Holiday" is a very exciting comeback for Confidence Man that eclipses everything I'd heard from them previously. I'd noticed that their previous singles seemed to veer toward a novelty appeal that was unfortunately not really working for me bar "Better Sit Down Boy" and "Does It Make You Feel Good?", which I thought was an interesting pivot with odd but rather slick production. There's something uniquely monumental about "Holiday", which leads with such vibrant colour in the production and the on-record presence of Janet Planet and Sugar Bones that I was struck by on first listen: each element sounds immense while retaining an effortless, off-beat charm. Janet's description of it as Underworld meets M.I.A. is totally spot on, and what better reference points to be bringing to mind.
The comebacks continue as Nilüfer Yanya challenges for a third consecutive year in the upper echelons of my EOYs with her new single "stabilise", which comes ahead of her upcoming second album Painless. "stabilise" reminds me a lot of "Heat Rises" with the foregrounded percussion loops, but it feels a little more angsty and charged with the fast spoken verses.
Beach House break the pattern of artists with 2018-released albums that I absolutely loved making #2 by coming in at #3 with "Superstar", my instant favourite of the four songs comprising the first chapter of their upcoming eighth album Once Twice Melody. Needless to say, they sound as enchanting as always with a distinct character to each of these first four songs; perhaps as a steady slow burner of a song "Superstar" is the most straightforward but it's perfectly paced and beautifully cohesive sonically.
I'm not very familiar with Russian DJ/singer Nina Kraviz but I adore her new single "This Time". By comparison to her previous single "Skyscrapers" (which I definitely ranked too low in July) it's quite nebulous as it drifts between the chorus and the verse but it's just as dreamy and melodic.
"The Only Heartbreaker" is the first song Mitski has co-written with someone else - she wrote it with Semisonic member Dan Wilson, whose co-writing discography is an interesting mix of artists (with quite a few songs I love in there). It's already quite distinct from "Working for the Knife" but it's no less exciting, I really like how lively the production is until the very end, as if she's revelling in her own self-destruction.
Also vaguely recalling '80s pop sounds is Charli XCX leaning as promised toward new jack swing alongside now two-time collaborators Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek. "New Shapes" is the weaker of both of their previous respective collaborations [s](Caroline's howling in "Tears" is sorely missed of course)[/s] but it's still a total blast and the features contribute a lot.
Just below are HARD FEELINGS's "Love Scenes" (the brilliant opener to their self-titled EP; HARD FEELINGS is a project of Joe Goddard and vocalist Amy Douglas, who apparently co-wrote Róisín Murphy's "Something More"); CLMD's "Heaven on Earth", which I've designated as a mini "WANT NEED LOVE" for some reason; Hayden James and Swedish singer Yaeger's "Waiting for Nothing" which has quickly become my favourite of his; Lennon Stella's quietly brilliant "Fancy" and my favourite single from G Flip since 2018 by far in "Scream".

In the interest of catching up on these lists before my EOY and not frying my brain with the self-imposed task of ranking 20000 songs I've decided I'll post condensed lists for the last two months of the year in the meantime.
