This weekend’s selection will be our last for 2020, a phrase which feels exactly and simultaneously relieving and daunting. We’ve chosen songs that make us feel that way too – in a good way.

Read on and listen below.

Sneaks‘ 2016 banger “New Taste” snuck right back in, in a time where connecting with isolated experiences (and isolation) is something most of us can relate to.

For fans of: Shopping, Chastity Belt, the Slits

“Galaxy” is a bumpy release from Kid Travis, featuring Eluzai, who showcases velvety vocals in an infectious and subtle pop/r&b offering.

For fans of: The Internet, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel

Proclaimed lofi surfers, Jaded Juice Riders dropped “Nowhere”, a stinging garage pop single destined to spin you somewhere despite its title.

For fans of: Wavves, Cloud Nothings, No Age

Alt Fiction has resurrected some kind of early 2000’s nostalgia through their latest,  “People You Know” and we’re in love. It’s instrumentally down-to-earth, with easy pop melodies convincing enough to stream on repeat.

For fans of: Phoenix, the Strokes, Tokyo Police Club

the neighbourhood shocked us with “Stargazing”, a song full of lovely daydreams and a few unexpected energetic shifts. Trust us on this.

For fans of: Alt Fiction, girl in red, Tame Impala

We are and forever will be a fan of the solo venture, Orchid Mantis. Their newest single, “can’t see the sun anymore” is a beautifully layered piece of wintry melancholy.

For fans of: DIIV, Launder, Castlebeat

De Stevens’s chilled out “Big Small Town” elicits drives down a quiet, long road – or maybe, taking your time writing a dramatic letter. The single is grounding: it slows you down, which says a lot to experience such a thing now.

For fans of: Vansire, Horsebeach, Cemeteries
