Best New Tracks
|BEST NEW SONGS: HOLLY MACVE - THE CORNER OF MY MIND|
Holly Macve is a 20 year old singer songwriter from County Galway in Ireland and she sounds like a girl who spent her formative teenage years listening to Lana Del Rey, First Aid Kit, and Irish folk songs.
|BEST NEW SONGS: KANYE WEST - FAMOUS|
As someone who’s given Life of Pablo more time than it deserves, I can say decisively say that it won’t capture many, if any, awards. LoP is a sprawling, inconsistent mess and probably Ye’s weakest offering since 808s & Heartbreak, but it’s got some fantastic moments, like Famous.
|BEST NEW SONGS: CASSIUS - THE MISSING FT. RYAN TEDDER AND JAW|
French electronic duo Philippe Cerboneschi and Hubert Blanc-Francard, a.k.a. Cassius, announced their first album in a decade: Ibifornia. They also released The Missing, a duet featuring OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder and French songstress JAW, along with Go Up, a song that yet again features Chan Marshall and Pharrell.
|BEST NEW COVERS: AURORA - LIFE ON MARS (DAVID BOWIE COVER)|
Norwegian singer AURORA’s spacey, minimalistic cover of Life On Mars is absolutely spellbinding. Recorded for the third installation for the aforementioned Girls soundtrack, AURORA utilizes only a choppy keyboard and her enchanting vocals.
