2016: The Year in Music, Part 1 of 4

Back with an annual list: Part 1 of 4 of some of my favorite songs of 2016. I love being able to find live, in-studio performances or decent live recordings (whenever possible) of these tunes to get a better feel for them. And the studio recordings for good measure.

Car Seat Headrest: “Fill in the Blank”

The Hotelier: “Goodness, Pt. 2”

Caveman: “Never Going Back”

Beach Slang: “Future Mixtape for the Art Kids”

Cloud Nothings: “Modern Act”

Father John Misty: “Real Love Baby”

Margaret Glaspy: “Emotions and Math”

Woods: “Sun City Creeps”

Parquet Courts: “Dust”
