#10 "Painting By Numbers" - In the Pines
Back on our top 10 is the amazing, the talented, and the great, In The Pines. This single is off their newest album, Painting by Numbers, which is out today!! We are so stoked to give it a listen and if it's anything like its leading single, the record will be a hit.
In The Pines is having an album release show at Woodward Theater on November 18th, and we're giving away tickets! Just click GIVEAWAYS and you're on your way.
#9 "What Now" - Brittany Howard
This bass line?! Crazy. Brittany Howard has funk in the palm of her hand and we're just witnessing her magic. In an interview she said, "'What Now' is maybe the truest and bluest of all the songs...I like how it’s a song that makes you want to dance, but at the same time the lyrics are brutal." Well, we are certainly dancing to this one even through all the pain.
#8 "Dramamine" - Middle Kids
Sydney based group, Middle Kids, is starring as our #8 this week. It's an indie-pop anthem detailing "the connection between belief and love," according to lead singer Hannah Joy. The hit is co-produced by Tom Fitz and Jonathan Gilmore (The 1975, Beabadoobe) and they put some magic into the chorus because it is so good.
#7 "Where My Girls At" - NOBRO
Welcome to #7 ladies and gentleman! What better band to fill the spot than NOBRO? They've got energy, they're loud, and they're making me want to start another band.
Thought hey maybe I can play too
Maybe one day I’ll be just as good as you
Saved up and bought myself a bass
Dreaming of a way to get outta this place
#6 "All Eyes On Me" (Feat. BENEE, Chad Hugo, Pusha T) - Phoenix
This is collaboration that we never knew we needed. Until now!! The Chad Hugo remix to the original song brings a funkier spin to the original song. BENEE's vocal sound so smooth, and Pusha T?!? He's always killing it.
#5 "The Trench Coat Museum" (Radio Edit) - Yard Act
Halfway already? Aw, man. Guess we'll have to rock out to some Yard Act in the meantime. They were off our A List for a few weeks but of course they had to make a comeback. This song lies somewhere between punk and 80's dance pop. Make sure to check out the music video as well because it really is spectacular.
#4 "INEEDIT" - Season Ten
Straight off their latest album, Brainstorm, is the one and the only, Season Ten. This song is catchy, it's upbeat, what's not to like about it? We've been spinning this one non-stop and we hope you love it as much as we do.
Make sure to check out Season Ten's show at Madison Live on November 17th!
#3 "Wendy" – Bad Veins
Babe. Babe. Wake up, Bad Veins just dropped a new song. This one is bringing us back to 2014, with poppy synths, crisp percussion, and auto-tune harmony vocals. Bad Veins makes a lot of great artistic choices in this song, showing the maturity and musical intellect the band has.
Make sure to listen to their upcoming album, Imposter, out December 1st.
#2 "We Looked Like Giants" (Death Cab For Cutie Cover) - Car Seat Headrest
I don't think we've ever been more happy to hear Will Toledo's voice, and to top that, covering a Death Cab For Cutie song? That's a cherry on top. This single is to commemorate DCFC 20th anniversary co-headlining tour, and I think CSH did it justice. The drums are phenomenal, the guitar tones are just right, and the band gives a chaotic spin to the song.
#1 "Hell" - Sleater Kinney
Number one is finally here guys. This song will absolutely blow your mind when the chorus comes crashing in. Corin Tucker's alto belts are so emotional and powerful. The lyrics also really shine in this one.
Hell don't have no future
Hell don't have no doubt
Hell is just a place that
We can't seem to live without
Same time next week? Thanks for joining me for this A List!
