124 Songs You Need to Hear Before 2014 Ends

Music is personal. It’s something that I’m never more aware of than I am at the end of every year, when best-of lists dominate the coverage at cultural publications, but the idea of “best” is one that I’ve never quite been comfortable with.

The 5 Best New Songs We Heard This Week: Strand of Oaks, Royksopp & Robyn

As we head into the big holiday weekend, I had my mind on upbeat new tunes this week. But besides Vic Mensa’s “Down On My Luck” still being in my personal rotation weeks after its release, I ended up gravitating more towards moody music than hedonistic bangers.
