And that’s 2016 begun. A shorter list than the rest, but I’ve been keeping a strange schedule and not gotten a whole lot of new music this month, so oh well.

  1. It takes me a long time to adjust, okay? 
  2. I’ve gotta say, Amber Run was probably one of my best finds for all of 2015. 
  3. This is the variant off the Friday Night Lights soundtrack. I still haven’t watched that show, actually – the quality of the soundtrack wavers back and forth between being enough to cancel out the fact that football bores me. 
  4. I just saw the music video for this one the other day. I liked it! 
  5. I believe he’s actually the composer, and that it’s Jennifer Lawrence singing, but that’s how the soundtrack shows up in iTunes, so whatever. 
  6. Actually a different version of it than what I had, since he finally released his EP so that I could replace the Soundcloud rip. 
  7. I really wasn’t sure that I was going to like this one, and then practically overnight it became the song that I’d skip past a bunch of others to get to. 
  8. I’ve never heard the Lorde version. I should probably look that up at some point, if only for comparison.
