Here's the best songs of 2018 (so far):

 

A single from newest Franz Ferdinand's album. I love the disco vibe in this song. It looked like they tried to appeal to younger audiences.

Loving the classic rock vibe in it. Sounds like something straight out of the ‘70s. From the warm tones of the guitars and the subtle yet dominate riffs that make it pop, to the robust and steady percussion, the song practically transports me back in time, back to when things were all about the music.

And the last one is a rap music from the young and talented Rich Brian.

I discovered Xavier Darcy on German television. He participated with this title in the preliminary round of the Eurovision Song Contest. Rarely to discover really good artists on television today. I would associate the song in the indie rock genre (so I put it to my indie rock playlist). Bold with great songwriting and a touch of 60s.

Bad Fun by courtship. popped up in my Release Radar a few weeks back and I have been listening to it non-stop. I like how lively and energetic it sounds, anytime I listen it feels like a boost of energy. This is definitely my top song for 2018 so far. :)

Hey all,

 

To me Courtney Barnett is one of the greatest rock artists who emerged in the last five years. 

 

Here's her new single:

@Klangspot it is so rare to discover good artists on TV - why might that be?

 

i loved the track, really energising and folkily upbeat

The few music broadcasts on German television (at the main channels) bring either artists who are already known or only the genre 'Schlager music'.

There are some channels 'in the second row' (3 SAT or ARTE) were you can discover new interesting music. Or 'The Voice of Germany' (I think they provide this casting show in many countries). Anything is is boring (at least for me).
