Best Of 2021: Songs In Order Of Preference Through January 31st

Everything I had – Sun June – The Austin, Texas indie-pop five piece band have crafted a mini miracle of mood, an austere brooder that simmers till it becomes a wall of brooding sound as it falls into the one, undoubted truth of 2021: “everything I had, I want it back”

rubberband – Tate McRae – Tate is sadgirl pop with electronic backing and a top, highly intelligent vision of her reality on her break-up song: “And I got this rubber band on my wrist, on my wrist and I snap it every time that I think about your lips”

Driver’s Livense – jxdn – the bedroom boy kills the cover, not on the bridge but the basic hook shines right through

This Mess We’re In – Demo – PJ Harvey – Harvey sings both Thom Yorke’s parts and her own and here is a demo in case you wondering what Thom added to the song (his voice, Harvey already had the lot

Tryin’ To Get To Heaven – David Bowie – Much more successful than his cover of Lennon’s “Mother,” recorded around the same early 90s vintage, on this one Bowie records the Dylan song a year after Dylan initially released it and Bowie gives it an epic sweep a la Station To Station, turning the break-up song into an epic surrender to death

Girl Like Me (feat. H.E.R.) – Jazmine Sullivan, H.E.R. – The best song on Jazmine’s neo-r&b album, has her trading lines and harmonizing with one of our great singers, Gabriella Wilson and around the two thirs way they scat and sing through a terrific bridge which makes the song

Fillin’ My Cup (feat. Little Big Town) – Hailey Whitters, Little Big Town – a superior drinking song from the country singer, rides a snappy fiddle
