Top Songs of 2013: Best Indie Pop Top Ten

By on Mar 16, 2014 in All, Gotta Hear This Music, Playlists |

At last, here it is: The best pop songs of 2013 that you haven’t heard on the radio. The key word today boys and girls is SYNTH. The more the better. Get it in heaping doses below. 1. Flight Facilities – Crave I don’t know why I obsessed over this song all year long. Maybe it’s because it’s so rare to hear a woman in a song who is shamelessly confident without being crass. Or maybe it’s because the lyrics are so evocative. Nah, it’s probably just that piano riff. In any case, it’s one of my absolute favorite songs of 2013. 2. Lily Allen – Hard Out Here It speaks volumes about how much I love that Flight Facilities track that this tune from Lily Allen only landed the #2 spot on my list. “Hard Out Here” makes a statement about the state of women in pop music with wit and spunk. It was only released as a single in 2013, but oh, what a...

Top Songs of 2013: Best Dance Music 11-20

By on Mar 14, 2014 in All, Gotta Hear This Music, Playlists |

2013 was another good year for dance music. In narrowing down this list, I focused on songs that capture the genres and artists of the zeitgeist…at least as it appears from my weird indie hole in the wall. Thus, there is no Miley Cyrus here, but I was more likely to include Lorde than a comparable remix that felt out of time. Despite such considerations, I think this list has more retro remixes than any previous year. Could it be that 2013’s producers were daydreaming of the sexual revolution? I’m just gonna assume its so.

Top Songs of 2013: Best Indie Pop 10-20

It’s that time again. Time to share the best songs flying under the radar for 2013.  I begin with the best indie pop songs of 2013 because I love the electro.  There’s too many delicious tunes to fit on one list so, as in years past, there will  be a part one and two to each list. Best Indie Pop of 2013 10-20 20. Pillowfight – Used to Think From Pillowfight, Jan 2013 If you’ve never heard of Pillowfight, you may be familiar with the folks behind it: Emily Wells and acclaimed producer Dan the Automator. “Used to Think” is a sultry torch song that makes me imagine Emily Wells as 2013’s Jessica Rabbit. 19. Fur Trade – Don’t Get Heavy From Don’t Get Heavy July 2013 If you like the easy harmonies of pop music but want something a little more complex, check out Fur Trade’s 2013 album Don’t Get Heavy (I suppose there’s...

Bag Raiders, Classixx and RAC play the Mezzanine this Saturday

By on May 30, 2013 in Bay Area, Concerts, Gotta Hear This Music, Playlists, San Francisco |

A good friend just told me that June 1st three fantastic DJs—Bag Raiders, Classixx, and the Remix Artists Collective—are going to be at the Mezzanine. All three of these DJs should be on your must-see list, as they’re consistently putting out memorable remixes of indie bands you already love (or should).
But don’t take my word for it, have a listen for yourself.
