We’re a quarter into 2015 and the first wave of new albums is about to hit. Sufjan Stevens is about to drop one, and Modest Mouse has been trickling out singles as we await their first album in years. Here are the five songs that have stood out to me the most in 2015 so far:
Modest Mouse – “Lampshades on Fire”
Joywave - “Somebody New”
The Districts - “4th and Roebling”
Twin Shadow - “I’m Ready”
Django Django - “First Light”
Also, some bonus tracks, featuring Zella Day, The Decemberists, and remember Mat Kearney?
