The 20 best tracks of the fortnight

The 20 best tracks of the fortnight


I’ve been looking back for much of the last month, revisiting and enjoying the first six months in music so far. Normally at this point I’d pick 50 songs to represent the half-year but I couldn’t limit it to 50 and went for 75. My albums of the year so far are also worth your ears.

In the meantime, the new music train keeps on running and while I was busy compiling and revisiting, I didn’t get the chance to share some doozies other than on the radio. So here are 20 of the  best new songs released in the last 14 days.

  1. Overcoats – ‘Smaller Than My Mother’
  2. Jack Garratt – ‘Weathered’
  3. Gallant – ‘Weight In Gold’
  4. Oh Wonder – ‘Livewire’
  5. Santigold – Radio
  6. Beach House – Sparks
  7. Chelsea Wolfe – ‘After The Fall’
  8. Girls Names – A Hunger Artist
  9. Bleeding Heart Pigeons – ‘A Hallucination’
  10. Manor – ‘Can You Hear Me Talking To You’
  11. Chinah – ‘Away From Me’
  12. Tory Lanez – ‘Acting Like’ (Production: Shlohmo)
  13. Lethal Dialect – ‘New Dublin Saunter’
  14. This Side Up – ‘True School’
  15. Four Tet & Steve Reid – ‘Strings Of Life’
  16. Groove Armada – ‘Love Sweet Sound’ (Kolsch remix)
  17. Daphni – ‘Vikram’
  18. Widowspeak – Girls
  19. Julia Holter – ‘Feel You’
  20. Seamus Fogarty – ‘Ducks & Drakes’
