2017: The Year In Music, Part 1 of 4

It’s time to get the 2017 edition of my annual list: Here’s part 1 of 4 of some of my favorite tracks from the year. 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. Plus a Spotify link to studio recordings for good measure.

The War On Drugs: “The Strangest Thing”

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile: “Over Everything”

Grizzly Bear: “Mourning Sound”

Laura Marling: “Soothing”

Amber Coffman: “All To Myself”

Cloud Nothings: “Enter Entirely”

White Reaper: “Judy French”

Broken Social Scene: “Hug Of Thunder”

Phoebe Bridgers: “Motion Sickness”
