Ranking: Top 100 ulubionych singli z 2015

HONNE - akurat ten zespół z dwoma piosenkami w setce wydał album dopiero w 2016 r., więc mogę z czystym sumieniem dać jego zdjęcie bez spojlerowania kolejnego rankingu

Brak rankingu ulubionych singli i płyt 2015 r. mocno mnie uwierał, dlatego postanowiłem przygotować go przynajmniej jako ciekawostkę przy okazji kolejnego podsumowania. Starałem się, aby wyglądał tak, jak wyglądałby 12 miesięcy temu.

MKRNI - En tu lugar

Pop Goes the Blog is always happy to present music from various corners of the globe. Some time ago I wrote about talented singer/songwriter from Israel, today it's the time for a trip to Chile.

Yoo-Yoo - Pet Shop Boys

The measure of Pet Shop Boys legacy is that people started to name songs after them after their 'imperial phase' (in Neil Tennant's words) ended.

Holly Blue - UpBeat

Polish electronic music still hold mysteries to me. I like discovering new bands and I'm a bit surprised and shocked that I haven't heard about duo Holly Blue earlier.

Sølv - I'm Your Gun

One of the most iconic things Lana Del Rey ever did, was calling her sound "gangsta Nancy Sinatra".

The Y Axes - Great Escape/Monsters

"What's that - Chvrches with guitars?" My blogger friend Mavoy asked me not so long ago when power outage forced me to replace my Spotify playlist with impromptu telephone playlist. I don't know if it was a criticism - hope not, because song in question was outstanding.

Lilyer - I Was On Your Side

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the probably most sensitive, unimstakably feminine indie pop song of 2016. One of those songs I would feel very guilty of not sharing.

Born Stranger - Be Someone

A bit of history first - because glorious history it is.

Throwback: Salt Ashes interview 2014

2016 already birthed few great albums (Wild Nothing, our Polish Rebeka, The Temper Trap, Blossoms, Roosevelt, recently Francis and the Lights) but the bar has been raised especially for two girls already wrote about: Shura and Salt Ashes. It's usually hard for my favorites to meet my expectations but Salt Ashes the LP delivers: it is very sparkly, groovy and passionate. This album proves that consistent disco/electro long plays are still a thing.

Muzyczna autobiografia odc. 2

Podobnie jak w wypadku tłumaczeń piosenek, wstydzę się, że zarzuciłem ten cykl prawie na rok mimo, gotowego brudnopisu na (aczkolwiek od stycznia 2013 r. odświeżyłem kilka piosenek, których tytułów wtedy nie pamiętałem).
