gorilla vs. bear’s songs of 2017

gvsb_songs_2017

Before we even have time to second guess our albums of the year list, here are our favorite songs of 2017. While plenty of our old favorites are well repped — including TOPS, Burial, Shabazz Palaces, SZA, Sufjan, Laurel Halo, et al. — it was an exceptionally great year for exciting new artists, with Men I Trust, Yaeji, Playboi Carti, Kelly Lee Owens, Aldous Harding, Bernache, and so many more dropping some of the most essential songs of the year.
