Songs to Shred By

   After several hip-hop-heavy years, my tastes have started to shift more heavily to alternative. And inexplicably, I've become a Foo Fighters fan all of a sudden ("Times like these," "Congregation," "All my life"). Here are some of my favorites from Copper and Breck playlists this year:

"Somebody New" Joywave
"Electric Love" BORNS
"Hollow Moon" AWOLNATION
"The Business of Emotion" Big Data
"Run" Coin
"Big Data" Dangerous f. Joywave
"Trainwreck 1979" Death from Above 1979
"Black Soap" Ex-Cops
"Come Back Down" Greg Laswell
"Peaches" In the Valley Below
"Bad Habit" The Kooks
"Up We Go" Lights
"Contagious" Night Riots
"Carried Away" Passion Pit
"My Type" Saint Motel
"Unkinder" Thumpers
"Goodbye" Who is Fancy
"Step" Vampire Weekend

And a few rap/hh favorites too:
"Trap Queen" Fetty Wap
"King Kunta" Kendrick Lamar
"Be Real", "Cool Back" Kid Ink
"Too Much" Que
"Aston Martin Music" Rick Ross
"Hood Go Crazy" Tech N9ne
"Mind Right" TK N Cash
"Ron O'Neal" Wu Tang Clan

And the awesomely uncategorizable:
"Sugar", "Maps" Maroon 5
"Sweet Caroline" Neil Diamond
