'Out Of Body' is my biggest loss from this batch I think! 'Humanz' is such a strong album, it says a lot when 'Out Of Body' isn't even in my top 3 of it.

What is your Humanz Top 3? ohmy.gif Saturnz Barz has been a clear favourite from it for me, but there's 10+ other songs which could complete my Top 3 on any day laugh.gif

107 LCD Soundsystem - Change Yr Mind 67

120 Neck Deep - In Bloom 59
121 Beck - Up All Night 58
122 PVRIS - No Mercy 58
123 Coldplay & Big Sean - Miracles (Someone Special) 57
124 Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights 57
125 Lana Del Rey - God Bless America 57

Beck's jaunty 'Up All Night' served as the lead single for his recent album Colors, which also spawned the excellent single 'Dreams' (by comparison that finished 38th in Indie SOTY 2015). for SHAME there's no Everything Everything in the top 100, a fail on the part of the voters of course, i'll ensure you all give points to Breadwinner next year. a fair amount of the casualties here [bleachers/oh wonder/pvris/julien baker etc] still have at least one track still left in the top 100 which we'll swiftly move onto ~~~

91 Declan McKenna - Humongous 89
92 Royal Blood - I Only Lie When I Love You 89
93 Lorde - Hard Feelings/Loveless 88
94 Spoon - Hot Thoughts 87
95 alt-J - In Cold Blood 86
96 Amy Shark - Adore 82
97 Björk - Arisen My Senses 81
98 Paramore - Grudges 79
99 Coldplay - Hypnotised 77
100 PVRIS - Winter 76


First appearances from Radio 1 rock favourites Royal Blood and relative newcomer Declan McKenna. Amy Shark's "Adore" rose to chart stardom in Australia following its runner up finish on Triple J's Hottest 100, and about a year later went onto BJSC success for Unovia. from their Kaleidoscope EP, Coldplay's Big Sean collab (that was a thing apparently) missed the top hundred but Hypnotised fares better at #99. alt-J communicate via binary on In Cold Blood, and Spoon deliver a superfuckingHOT comeback single with Hot Thoughts. given the low position most of you clearly haven't heard it so i'll give you that courtesy right now

81 Julien Baker - Appointments 100
82 Lana Del Rey - White Mustang 100
83 Nothing But Thieves - Sorry 100
84 CoCo & The Butterfields - Battlegrounds 99
85 Declan McKenna - Why Do You Feel So Down 99
86 LCD Soundsystem - Call The Police 99
87 The National - Day I Die 99
88 Lana Del Rey feat. Stevie Nicks - Beautiful People Beautiful Problems 95
89 Harry Styles - Kiwi 92
90 Royal Blood - How Did We Get So Dark 90


Not often a former 1D member would find themselves in Indie SOTY but Harry Styles' venture into hard rock with Kiwi fits right in. LCD Soundsystem picked up a ton of critical adoration with their first three albums, eventually disbanded in 2011 but made their big return seven years - 'Call the Police' being the first taster for their new stuff (surprisingly Grammy-winning single 'Tonite' doesn't show up here). Hailing from Tennessee, Julien Baker released her second album in 2017, she seems to have garnered a bit of a mini-following here! give the single Appointments a spin below, it's rather lovely

Shame that Hypnotised was higher than Someone Special as the Big Sean collab was actually really good

Paramore & Lorde album tracks out so soon cry.gif

Loving the recognition for Royal Blood though, really loved both of their albums

Appointments might be my #1 song of the last year

the bit that goes:

Maybe it's all gonna turn out all right
and I know that it's not
but I have to believe that it is

How Did We Get So Dark is a great song. Almost got the white vinyl of the new album, but because I was saving up towards the OK Computer blue vinyl re-release at the time, I got the CD instead.
Sorry, Call The Police, Day I Die, WDYFSD, Kiwi are some other greats on this list.

71 Confidence Man - Better Sit Down Boy 109
72 Declan McKenna - The Kids Don't Wanna Come Home 108
73 Fleet Foxes - Third Of May / Ōdaigahara 106
74 PVRIS - Heaven 106
75 King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard - Crumbling Castle 104
76 Royal Blood - Lights Out 104
77 Susanne Sundfør - Undercover 104
78 Lorde - Sober II (Melodrama) 103
79 Gorillaz - Ascension 102
80 alt-J - Deadcrush 101


Royal Blood's lead single from "How Did We Get So Dark?" ranks the highest, that's followed by "Crumbling Castle", a 9-minute psych rock epic from one of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's five album releases last year (yes that happened). Fleet Foxes came back too, one of indie folk's breakout bands from the late 2000s, with the progressive tune Third Of May/Ōdaigahara. You've all been sleeping on Susanne Sundfør's recent material so here's the hauntingly wonderful Undercover for you to delve into~
