Eardemption 2017

I feel like every year I say that my game is down, but I probably listened to significantly less now-moment music in 2017 than others.  To boot, it felt like now music didn't have as much to offer to right now as in previous iterations of "now".

Nevertheless, here are 30-ish songs I really liked this year, in relative order.   

Sophie - "Ponyboy"
Sophie - "It's Okay to Cry"
Lanark Artefax - "Touch Absence"
Selena Gomez - "Bad Liar"
St Vincent  - "Los Ageless"
Missy Elliot ft Lamb - "I'm Better"
Ida Dillan - "DM Me"
Vince Staples - "Yeah Right"
Charli XCX - "Boys"
Migos - "Bad and Boujee"
Fever Ray - "To the Moon and Back"
Slowdive  - "Sugar for the Pill"
Bjork - "The Gate"
SZA - "Drew Barrymore"
LCD Soundsystem - "How Do You Sleep?"
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - "A Song of Summer"
Fawkes - "Nemesis"
HCMJ  - "Ran Through Glass"
Yatta - "Desert Song"
Brian Eno/Kevin Shields - "Only Once Away My Son"
Tyler the Creator ft Frank Ocean, Steve Lacey - "911/Mr. Lonely"
Kingdom - "Tears in the Club"
Drake - "Passionfruit"
Perfume Genius - "Die 4 You"
Sega Bodega ft Shygirl - "CC"
Yves De Mey - "Summer"
TRONICBOX - "Whaaat85 (AG Cook mix)"
Syd - "All About Me"
Mumdance & Logos - "Café Del Mar"
Zuli - "What you Do"
