2017: The Year in Music, Part 2 of 4

It’s time to get the 2017 edition of my annual list: Here’s part 2 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 Rural Alberta Advantage: “Brother”

The National: “The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”

Temples: “I Wanna Be Your Mirror”

Perfume Genius: “Slip Away”

Real Estate: “Darling”

Alvvays: “In Undertow”

Sheer Mag: “Just Can’t Get Enough”

Kendrick Lamar: “HUMBLE.”

Chromatics: “Shadow”
