Helloooo Internet, it is that time of year. This year has been crazy with you know fatherhood so I haven't written any blogs since last years best ofs. Its been an alright year in terms of music but to be fair I think I didn't have as much time to peruse as I usually would. For me it has been a year more for new artists than returning ones but anyway enough of the waffle and onto the list - same rules, 1 song per artist and released as a single or album track in 2017;
25. Nova Twins - Thelma and Louise
24. Arcade Fire - Everything Now
23. FREAK - No Money
22. Azealia Banks - Queen of Clubs
21. Bipolar Sunshine - Are You Happy
20. Grouplove - Adios Amigo
19. Dave - Question Time
18. Jon Boden - Bee Sting
17. RAT BOY - Revolution
16. Kendrick Lamar - Humble.
15. Morrissey - Spent the day in Bed
14. Superfood - Unstoppable
13. John Hassall & The April Rainers - Persephone
12. Black Kids - If My Heart is Broken
11. Childcare - Kiss?
10. Skipinnish - Ocean of the Free
9. Johnny Flynn - Raising the Dead
8. Everything Everything - Can't Do
7. Kele Okereke - Capers
6. Keston Cobblers Club - Almost Home
5. Blaenavon - Orthodox Man
4. Declan McKenna - Why do you Feel so Down?
3. The Killers - The Man
2. Stormzy - Big For Your Boots
1. The Big Moon - Formidable
So slightly controversially ( to no one but me) the top track was released as a single in 2016 but it was on the album in 2017 and that is when I got into it and here it is, top of the tree. As I said a good year for new artists, 7 of the top 10 have never made any of my lists before and soon enough you may see a similar trend in the album stakes. Until then you can listen to the playlist HERE.
