100 Great Singles From New England of 2016 – 21-40

 

The I Want You – Guns

Killing ’em with all the great hooks


Ian Cat and the Crimsons – Don’t Find Me Now

The high quality of this art-rock brew screams “find me” (or “Google me”)


Tiki Twins – Stay Awake

Hot blast of speedy RAWK from members of Future Spa and Skyjelly

 


Tredicci Bacci – Give Him the Gun

Somewhere between Boston, New York and Ennio Morricone’s Italy

 


Sound Down Cellar – Another Flight Away

Bringing back that good 90s vibe

 


Wolfmen of Mars – Villain in a Black Hat

A kind of villain that deserves a movie and a soundtrack of his own

 


Meat Dreams – Counseling

They’re slightly off, bro (with apologies to TI) and that’s why there’s a need for counseling


Strange Passage – Lament

Bright and jangly in all the right ways

 


Profit Margin – You Are What You Buy

Sloppy but charming anarcho-punk

 


Pandemix – Second Opinion

Like some ugly mutant brother of Mission of Burma

 


Dust Witch – Mirage

Creepy but fascinating sci-fi drama

 


L’eclipse Nue – Mary, Come Down

Sweet little nightmare

 


Ucarly – Aminal World

A bizarre love song born in a place where deliberate typos and awkward selfies meet

 


Thirty Silver – Dead Skin

Fighting betrayal one tribal stomp at a time


Halfsour – Ten Year Tenure

Thrashing mad slacker pop

 


Sam Rog – Party Cloud

Crunchy tekno grooves from an ex-Designer

 


Ocular Audio Experiment – Color

Taming those colorful psychedelic waves

 


Model/Actriz – Heavy Breather

Neurotic and unbalanced in a highly entertaining way (not to be confused with Juan Monostereo’s similarly named post-Brainiac project)

 


Gay Sin – Hangin’ Around

Bob Mould dressed in drag, dancing to the Ramones

 


Somniferous – Smear

As colorful and elegant as artwork on the corresponding EP
