Top Twenty

1. Aesop Rock - “The Gates”

Album: Spirit World Field Guide

Great opening track to a concept album by one of the best lyricists releasing music today.

2. Run The Jewels - “Walking In The Snow”

Album: RTJ4

Such a timely song for the racial tensions in America this year, recorded before the murder of George Floyd.

3. Sylvan Esso - “Rooftop Dancing”

Album: Free Love

A warmer and more laid back approach from Sylvan Esso this time around but this track is still fun.

4. Yves Tumor - “Hasdallen Lights”

Album: Heaven To A Tortured Mind

Coming from a more experimental electronic background, this is comfortable and challenging at the same time while exhibiting a more pop-forward approach.

5. Controller 7 - “Where Do I Begin?”

Album: Tommy and Richie present "Billy"

Concept album from Controller 7 and Buck 65 based on the movie Buffalo 66. Great movie, great musicians. Just so glad to see Buck 65 release something. 

6. The Spits - “Lose My Mind”

Album: VI

Finally more Spits. Good fun punk from Seattle.

7. Robedoor - “Reality is a Mausoleum”

Album: Drunk on Poison: 2005-2008

An old (but new to me) track from a new collection of old tracks. Less melodic than recent releases.

8. Wasted Shirt - “Zeppelin 5”

Album: Fungus II

Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt and Ty Segall team up for a noisy garage rock experience.

9. Freddie Gibbs / The Alchemist - “Something to Rap About”

Album: Alfredo

Jazzy laid back hip hop.

10. Pop Smoke - “Shake The Room”

Album: Meet The Woo 2

Hard hip hop beats with a fun emcee. RIP Pop Smoke.

11. Brigid Dawson & The Mothers Network - “Ballet of Apes”

Album: Ballet of Apes

Ex Oh Sees member, psych-y folk rock with beautiful vocals and a touch of jazz.

12. Matmos - “No Concept”

Album: The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises in Group Form

Just a quick glimpse at an album that clocks in around three hours, with a guest list of artists a mile long. These guys are always on the cutting edge of what music is and how it’s made.

13. Charli XCX - “forever”

Album: how i'm feeling now

Electropop to give you something to bounce to.

14. Body Improvement Calendar - “Flexible Schedules”

Album: Business Major

A hijacked Instagram account filled with self-help bots: transformational mind, soul and body improvement “friends.” The endless motivational speeches which spill out of this account become the constructive sound palette for fractured dub, hip-hop, and wonky spoken word.

15. System Of A Down - “Genocidal Humanoidz”

Album: Protect The Land / Genocidal Humanoidz

SOAD came back after 15 years with a strong statement about the war between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

16. Népal - “Ennemis, Pt. 2” (feat. Di-Meh)

Album: Adios Bahamas

French cloud rap. RIP Népal.

17. OSEES - “Blood On Your Boots

Album: Be Gay, Do Crime!

Who doesn’t need more Oh Sees in their life? Garage psych rock gods.

18. L.A. Takedown - “There Is a Drone in Griffith Park”

Album: Our Feeling of Natural High

Drifting on a synthwave.

19. Caribou - “Never Come Back”

Album: Suddenly

A relatively stripped down, house-tinged dance tune.

20. Sunwatchers - “Sunwatchers Vs. Tooth Decay”

Album: Oh Yeah?

When you need some improv jazz in your life, turn to these guys.
