56. Stars – “Fixed”
Not sure how this one fits into their ghost-centric concept album, but maybe I'm not paying close enough attention. I like this happy, upbeat Stars, but most of their new album is a bummer.
57. Toro y Moi – “Leave Everywhere”
Toro y Moi is actually just one dude, and he's one of the pioneers of the chillwave sound, a kind of laptop-pop, synth-heavy vibe which (as far as I can tell) is basically a big internet inside joke for hipsters. "Leave Everywhere," though, abandons that sound for a more traditional rock feel, and it works beautifully.
58. Freelance Whales – “Generator ^ Second Floor”
As the title implies, the second song on Weathervanes with the word "Generator" in the title, and you can tell the difference because this is NOT the one that Ilana makes fun of all the time.
59. Radio Dept – “Heaven’s on Fire”
Sweden Fun Fact: As of 2004, you can pay your taxes via text message.
60. Blair – “Kamikaze”
I like Twitter in theory, but I'm starting to see that, for me, it's where the internet hit the point of diminishing returns (or at least the point of information exhaustion) ... still, I never would have heard this song were it not for a tweet from Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy.
