I’m a pretty big music fan, many different types, so thought I’d share the three best tracks, in my opinion, from last year. The videos attached are pretty good too, and that factored into the songs I put up here.
First one is Alt J, a British band that didn’t release anything up here until September of this year. Still don’t know where they came from. This is not perhaps their most well-known song, but it is the one I like the best. Some of the sounds are off-scale unique.
Next one is Lindsey Stirling’s Crystallize. Likely most people have heard this one, she is getting pretty big. Combining violin with dubstep is a bit strange but worked perfectly. The video adds a pretty interesting visual element and some dance, too. True art.
But best song of the year for me has got to be Skrillex’s Bangarang. I don’t know if it’s dubstep or brostep or whatever. I know people are offended by the very existence and popularity of this song because it smacks around the dubstep purists. But whatever. It’s great.
