2016: The Year in Music, Part 3 of 4

Back with an annual list: Part 3 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.

Lucy Dacus: “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore”

LNZNDRF: “Beneath the Black Sea”

Big Thief: “Masterpiece”

DIIV: “Dopamine”

Ra Ra Riot ft. Rostam: “I Need Your Light”

Angel Olsen: “Shut Up Kiss Me”

BRONCHO: “Fantasy Boys”
