Stockholm/Oslo trio Postiljonen take their soaring Scandinavian dream-pop to dizzying new heights on their fittingly titled new single, out today on Hybris. "Put your head back in the game / Get up, lose the chain / We got stars to claim", implores singer Mia Brox Bøe, her wistful plea brimming with hope as "Chasing Stars" blasts off into the rare air of the stratosphere reserved for M83's most towering jams...
Sweden's Postiljonen share their glowing new single, taken from the group's forthcoming LP Reverie, out February 19, 2016. With the stellar recent singles they've unveiled from the new record, these guys are really staking their claim as the greatest remaining Swedish Balearic dream-pop group — RIP Air France and Korallreven — and the gorgeous, windswept "The Open Road" might be their most heartfelt and goosebump-inducing song yet (that "this could be easy / it's all in the past" bit literally gets me every time). Check the video, featuring footage the group shot on their recent tour of Asia, below, and grab the track now on iTunes:
It may or may not be that time yet, but here is the highly subjective list of our 60 favorite albums -- too long, I know, but we could have gone much deeper -- from an unfathomably weird, incredible, terrifying 2016. It was a year marked by loss and uncertainty, and that might be why music felt more monumental to us than ever. Thanks for sticking with us for another year. Check the full list + a lovingly curated four-hour Spotify playlist below, and as always, we'd love to hear about your favorites that we might have missed.
Following last week's Albums of 2015 list, here are our favorite songs of the year: we went deeper than ever this time out, and while 111 tracks might seem like a lot to love in any given 12 month span, I feel like the list is a pretty accurate representation of just how unreal 2015 has been for new music. Featuring multiple entries from Grimes, Jamie xx, Young Thug, Kendrick Lamar, Chromatics, Erykah Badu, Beach House, TOPS, and Cindy Lee, and spanning from underground Russian dance music and soaring Norwegian pop to incendiary west coast rap and inspired Texas soul, and just about everywhere in between. Check out the full list below, right after you hit play on that nearly 7-hour-long Spotify playlist:
