My 2018 Playlist

Early in the year I started an iTunes playlist called 2018. I added songs to it as it occurred to me. I didn’t really have a plan, but it ended up creating a portrait of my year.

Many tracks are new music that resonated with me. A few are old favorites that had particular relevance this year. I did just a bit of light editing (paring down to one track from any given album) and rearranging to taste.

Hope you find something new that ya like. Here’s the tracklisting:

  • Fly As I Dare – Shredders
  • How Did This Happen!? – Bodega
  • Stand By Me – Ki:Theory
  • Nont For Sale – Sudan Archives
  • We’re Alone – Naked Giants
  • Yr Throat – Jeff Rosenstock (favorite new song of the year)
  • Noid – Yves Tumor
  • What a Time to Be Alive – Superchunk
  • Sour Cherries – Kitten Forever
  • I Feel Energy (feat. Amber Mark) – Dirty Projectors
  • Barcelona City Tour – Mourn (favorite new band I saw live)
  • Aquarius – Starry Nights
  • Unbelievers – Ezra Furman
  • Depreston – Courtney Barnett
  • 22 (OVER S∞∞N) [Bob Moose Extended Cab Version] – Bon Iver
  • Gold Rush – Death Cab for Cutie
  • Heaven – Charly Bliss
  • Sun In an Empty Room – The Weakerthans (theme song for the excellent Heavyweight podcast I discovered this year)
  • Everybody’s Coming to My House – David Byrne
  • Annihilation (feat. Sims) – Four Fists, P.O.S & Astronautalis

Thanks to Neil for the Google Play version!
