New Good Song: "Life Itself," Glass Animals 5.22.16

Here's a new good song: "Life Itself" by Glass Animals. This is just awesome. An eclectic but beautifully created instrumental underneath amusingly candid lyrics ("I can't get a job, so I live with my mom / I take her money, but not quite enough.") Enjoy!

New Good Song: "She Burns," Foy Vance 5.22.16

Here's a new good song: "She Burns" by Foy Vance. At first listen, this seems a bit too slow and sparse for my taste, but upon closer repeated listens, there's a lot of excellence here, and it's really grown on me. Great production effects, great lyrics and melody, very catchy and meaningful. The bass that comes in at 1:40 is especially unexpected and compelling. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "So Special," Muna 5.22.16

Here's a new good song: "So Special" by Muna. This group is creating fantastic music. Their song "Loudspeaker" is one of the best songs of 2016 so far (perhaps the very best), and this tune, "So Special," also is excellent. Just great music. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "What Am I Becoming?" Pop Etc 5.22.16

Here's a new good song: "What Am I Becoming?" by Pop Etc. This group has had some fantastic songs of the past couple years, including "Running In Circles," which was the eighteenth-best new good song of 2015, and "Yoyo," the thirteenth-best new good song of 2012. They're very into '80s new wave pop rock. Here's another good one. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Fireproof," Coleman Hell 5.22.16

Here's a new good song: "Fireproof" by Coleman Hell. Mr. Hell is proving to be one of the best acts to emerge in the past 18 months. He had the third, fortieth and ninety-second best songs of 2015, with "Thumbalina," "Take Me Up" and his breakout hit "2 Heads," respectively. He's a genuine genre-blender, plucking elements of dance, rock, pop, bluegrass and country. His newest song also is great. Enjoy!
