I’m not much of an audiophile. But for what it’s worth, here’s the music that spoke to me this last year. (These weren’t all released this year, they’re just songs I listened to a lot.)

Fire Ant // Alex Winston

Love Love Love // Of Monsters and Men

Anything Could Happen // Ellie Goulding

Shake It Out // GLEE version (Florence and the Machine)

Soft Rock Star // Metric 

Safe and Sound // Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars (The Hunger Games OST)
