100 / DJ SNAKE FEAT. JUSTIN BIEBERLET ME LOVE YOU

Better and better new world pop.

99 / TY SEGALL EMOTIONAL MUGGER

Like every year, Ty Segall will release one or two albums in 2017. And he will announce lots of concerts to go around the world and avoid getting depressed alone, at his home in California. While waiting to meet him under the more capricious sun of Villette Sonique, you can read his portrait on this side of the site.

98 / PI JA MA RADIO GIRL

If it was 2006 and Kate Nash and Lily Allen hadn’t broken through, you would have found the perfect welcome song to illustrate your Myspace profile. Just before imagining the possibility of a ukulele cover.

97 / THE VASCO EASY-ONLINE

France has incredible talent #1

96 / CALYPSO PINK CALYPSO QUEEN

95 / THE ROLLING STONESRIDE ‘EM ON DOWN

It’s 2016 and you’re about to watch a Rolling Stones music video. Or a Levi’s ad. Or a remake of Grindhouse. Or Kristen Stewart and a zebra in a video that brings all these influences together.

94 / SHAME THE LICK

The 2016, rock, English and organic version of The Cold Vein by Cannibal Ox, one of the best discs of the year 2000. In a wry style, Shame tells stories of gynecology and acrylic painting with disconcerting class and distance: “ So in the past week I’ve made several trips to the gynecologist / He was surprised to see me ». This year, the guys also provided one of the coolest concerts of the Pitchfork Festival during their last visit to Paris.

93 / SUUNS INSTRUMENT

Largely underestimated outside of the northern part of line 5 of the Paris metro, Suuns were indeed one of the most exciting rock bands of the time. In April, the Canadians gave us the pleasure of unveiling their album in preview on the site. A great opportunity to re-read our long interview to shed light on their already impressive journey. It is also Ana Benabs’ favorite track.

92 / CORINE WHY WHY

You might think it’s a joke, but this song really fills up the round trips on the road to Aix-en-Provence. Especially between Rognes and Pélissanne. Girl from your regionCorine’s very first EP, was released in early December and you can listen to it in full while eating ceviche.

91 / JAMES BLAKE FEAT. GOOD IVER – i NEED A FOREST FIRE

James Blake’s ‘surprise’ album was released the day before Radiohead’s return announcement. Understand: in the middle of the international week of good humor plated on virtual disc. Blake obviously lost the fight of likes and melancholy but the chronicle of The Color In Anything is available right here to refresh your emotions and memory.

90 / DENZEL CURRY ULT

1995 is now the year your favorite rapper was born.

89 / APPOINTMENTDISTANCE

France has incredible talent #2

88 / DIIVDOPAMINE

Is the Is Are, DIIV’s second album, was released at the very beginning of the year. 17 tracks and enough melodic evidence to bring New York indie rock back to life and authenticity. Zachary Cole Smith explains the difficult gestation of the record and its need for transparency and clarity at this address.

87 / RAE SREMMURD FEAT. GUCCI MANEBLACK BEATLES

Everything is in the title.

86 / ABRA CRYBABY

It didn’t take long for Abra to establish himself as the star of Atlanta label Awful Records. His first album dates from 2015 and we meet the same ghosts of the past, from Aaliyah to ESG, on the EP Princess which tumbled this year. Far too much ease and talent in one and the same living being.

85 / PLOTS MYENEMY

All the geniuses present at the Parcels concert during the last Inrocks Festival know that 2017 belongs to these young Australians who are fans of Daft Punk and the Bee Gees. Their first ep is coming in a few weeks.

84 / ISAIAH RASHAD4R DA SQUAW

Isaiah Rashad’s debut album was released in early September. A masterstroke reinforced by the presence of Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock or Syd tha Kid (from The Internet). But he don’t need nobody to shine on 4r Da Squaw Where Free lunchthe best tracks from the album.

83 / COURT FLOORSBERLIN GOT BLURRY

“Ah, finally REAL rock. »

82 / LINDSTRØM CLOSING SHOT

Obligatory piece to start the club part of your aperitif playlists or your “air-DJsets”.

81 / ALEX CAMERON SHE’S MINE

This year, the Australian Alex Cameron had the good idea to repost Jumping The Sharka fabulous album that went almost unnoticed in 2014. Cameron is clearly the forgotten genius of 2016 and he gives you an appointment for a second track in the rest of the ranking which will be unveiled next week.
