wow. here we are, halfway through 2017.
i’ll cut right to the chase: 2017 is one of the best music years in a long time. there hasn’t been a month pass by without some really great music releases. and the exciting thing is that 2017 is only gonna get better, with album releases upcoming from arcade fire, st. vincent, queens of the stone age, mutemath, and the war on drugs (and the list could go on).
with all the great music, there’s no doubt that some really great stuff didn’t make this list. and it also stands to reason that by the end of the year, some near the top of this list are likely to get dethroned. should be fun seeing how it plays out throughout the rest of 2017
alright, let’s do this. here’s the best songs of 2017 (so far):
