Top 10 of 2017: Honorable Mentions 

HAIM - Found It In Silence

HAIM brings their usual harmonies and really great production to a song that sounds like it would have been right at home a decade ago. There’s an undercurrent of Call Me Maybe here, and I mean that in 100% the best way.

Spoon - Hot Thoughts

The lead track off the song of the album of the same name, it’s a song that you know is Spoon 10 seconds in, for all the right reasons.

Loud Forest - Wake Up

A little pop gem from a husband/wife duo. This narrowly missed getting into my top 10. This is such a sunshiny, windows down, driving around during the summer song. It hits my favorite song trope: the fade out, then come in with the kick drum to launch into the last verse/chorus.
