  • Top 25 Tracks of 2017

    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.
