Happy New Year everyone!


As is tradition [We did this last year – TTW Ed.], the first quarterly of the year rounds up all those songs from 2016 that just missed the cut in being on my Best of 2016 list. The very best of the rest if you will.

And with time at a premium, let’s get straight to it with a run down of the runners and riders:

  1. Jeff Rosenstock – We Begged 2 Explode (from the album Worry.)
  2. Shit Present – Sick Of Me (from the Misery + Disaster EP)
  3. Beth Orton – 1973 (from the album Kidsticks)

  1. The Burning Hell – Men Without Hats (from the album Public Library)
  2. Terry – 8 Girls (from the single 8 Girls)
  3. Manray – Feelin’ Alright (from the Feelin’ Alright cassette EP)

  4. Kristin Hersh – Between Piety And Desire (from the album Wyatt At The Coyote Palace)
  5. Robert Pollard – Little Pigs (from the album Of Course You Are)
