The winter solstice is an astronomical event marking the shortest day and longest night of the year, a day on which the sun stands still, officially ushering in winter. It's a cold, dark time, and it feels that way this year more so than ever...

A. G. Cook remixes Oneohtrix Point Never’s “Sticky Drama”

STICKY DRAMA A.G. COOK

PC Music's A. G. Cook turns Oneohtrix Point Never's "Sticky Drama" into a mindbending, demented pop ballad, which you can check below. In other news, the two recently shared their equally demented top 500 songs of the year list. No one's ever heard of any of those.

watch Norwegian duo Smerz’s shadowy new video for “Thrill”

SMERZ THRILL

Not sure why no one told us about the dope new EP from Norwegian electro-pop duo Smerz that dropped a few weeks back on Hard Up, but consider this our first case of serious year-end-list regret. We were enthralled by their single "Because" that dropped early this year, and while new track (and EP opener) "Thrill" isn't quite the immediate, danceable banger, it is a haunting and hypnotic Knife-esque gem in the vein of "You Make Me Like Charity" that has us even further entranced by the group...

Today we follow up our albums of 2016 list with the much more interesting list of our 101 favorite songs of the year. Featuring a couple of inventive flips of Shangaan Electro and Tropicália samples in the top 3, the powerful opening missive from A Tribe Called Quest's first album in nearly 20 years, an old Radiohead love song, multiple jams each from Frank Ocean, Danny Brown, and Carly Rae, undeniable breakthrough singles from Whitney, Mitski, Maggie Rogers, and The Homie, another strong showing from TX's own S U R V I V E boys (whose massive year culminated this morning in 2 Grammy noms in the same category), and many more incredible and essential tracks that helped us all make it through this pathetic excuse for a year.

premiere: hear a previously unreleased song from Strawberry Switchblade’s 1982 4-piece demo

STRAWBERRY SWITCHBLADE

Before influential Scottish '80s pop/new-wave cult heroes Strawberry Switchblade were a duo, they were a short-lived 4-piece, formed in Glasgow in 1982. There is very little evidence of this first, "full band" incarnation of the group, aside from a few grainy photos and a charming, lo-fi, C86-prophesizing 3-song demo tape recorded at Glasgow's Hellfire Club, to be reissued in early 2017 on Glaswegian label Night School Records...
