la – Kelsea Ballerini –  then she took a pill in Ibiza

Back of a Cab – King Princess – the brooding add on for the deluxe album is a brooding piece of missynched weird soulfulness

Hard To Forget – Sam Hunt – There stands the song

Rare – Selena Gomez – it isn’t Ariane on romance, but it is still great

Slow Down – Acoustic – Skip Marley, H.E.R. – Bob’s Grandson and H.E.R.’s third song on this list

Mal – Slow Mass – melodic hardcore meets punk

Only The Young – Featured in Miss Americana – Taylor Swift – Yeah, Taylor gets political but you’ll stay for the terrific hook

Trash Glam Baby – The Boomtown Rats – their first song knocking on forty years and it’s still like clockwork

Dressing America – TORRES – she goes Americana-y

Bikini Porn – Tove Lo – Hot stuff EDM nursery rhyme, the video is killer -co-produced by Finneas

Lilacs – Waxahatchee – A brilliant metaphor fuels a sad and sweet and smart indie folk rock in love that seems slipping and needs holding, just a sense of how life fades
