NICOLAS JAAR x RESIDENT ADVISOR MIX
Nicolas Jaar made an amazing/sprawling, 66-minute mix — "a strange and lovely bricolage" — for Resident Advisor, to commemorate the venerable electronic music site's 500th podcast. Recorded in December 2015, in Brooklyn, New York, and featuring Talk Talk, Terry Ril…
Gorilla vs. Bear x 2015 year-end mix
Here's our annual year-end retrospective, a definitive 80-minute mix of the songs by which we'll remember 2015 (it also doubles as a very emotional and hopefully serviceable misty-eyed New Year's Eve soundtrack). Thanks for hanging with us this year, see y'all in 2016.

The 21 Best Videos of 2015

Also featuring one brilliant…
GORILLA VS. BEAR’S SONGS OF 2015
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…
top 5 Young Thug songs of 2015
Nothing more subjective than picking your favorite Young Thug song in a year when the absurdly prolific rapper seemed to release a new mixtape, collab, or random-ass potential hit every week, so here are our personal top 5, at least until ThuggaXWapp drops (spoiler: at least 4 of these will be on ou…

GORILLA VS. BEAR’S ALBUMS OF 2015
We feel pretty confident proclaiming 2015 the best year for new music this decade, and we'd even go so far as to say it's been arguably our favorite year in the history of this site. So many stars seemed to serendipitously align this year — our 10th as a blog — for sounds that veered right into our …
