best of 2016 :: 88 Favorite Songs

AND now songs. The compilation of these tracks was aided by heavy use of last.fm, Bandcamp, Spotify and Soundcloud. As shitty as this year was, I was truly amazed at all the great music that percolates up from the underground. There’s a lot of overlap with this year’s Best Of Albums list, but hey this one is not in alphabetical order soooo you GOT to read through the whole damn thing, ok? (The page might take a little bit of time to load so be fucking patient!)

And sorry this is being posted in January and not at the very end of December as per usual :)
