Feeling Of Failing – Cheat Codes, Kim Petras – Kim is an interesting, more interesting than Cheat Codes are  – C+

Nothing Breaks Like A Heart – Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus – Terrible EDM pop ballad -where’s the song? – MUST TO AVOID – D

Blur (featuring Foster The Children – Mo – FTC are a good pop rock electronic band and Mo is the new EDM pop classicist, this isn’t great but it is good and they mesh well – B

Dejalo – Nacho, Manuel Turizo – This is Venezuelan pop singer Nacho’s baby, and it is as sweet as molasses mid-tempo Latin pop track – B+

Breach -Trope – Art rockers get their metal on with a twinge of prog – B

Ain’t Gonna Moan No More – Van Morrison – Typical jazzy blues ballad – B

Emo Christmas – Wavves – “Something about Christmas makes me cry…” Me too, it must be the plethora of Yuletide tunes, though Nathan has a small beauty here – B
