53 SPOON - "Inside Out" [272 points, 9 votes, 1 first place vote]

this sounds like what would happen if you nabbed julian lennon out of the late 80s and locked him in a room with that owl city song playing over and over again until he lost his mind and then forced him to only use drum loops from the first version of GarageBand and recorded it on a tascam four track with the bass shelved out. 5/10

77 NICKI MINAJ "Lookin Ass"

wow she really really likes that word a lot. is the vocal sample her recordings of kanye locked in a well in her basement? this is super fucking stupid. there are moments where you get glimpses of her skill still but fuck off man dumb cartoon bullshit echhh. glad its short at least. 3/10

76 OWEN PALLETT "Song for Five & Six”

ignoring for a second local man wins prize and my general deep respect for what he does and trying to listen to this with unencumbered ears - dig the music, wish the vocals felt more a part of the song in some way, they're living in some alternate room of reverb or something and that always weirds me out. its a tricky song to listen to in a good way, ill be suprised if anything else in the countdown hits my rhythm complexity buttons quite so hard but something just doesnt quite click for me? 7/10

75 TUNE-YARDS "Water Fountain"

FULL DISCLOSURE I VOTED FOR THIS although almost as a placeholder for thinking theres something going on with her that is still kind of revealing itself. its unapologetic and weird and difficult in a way that i didnt hear a lot of this year, the song just keeps breaking apart the longer you listen and then somehow reassembles itself in the last minute. im down.

less objectionable than i generally expect but still she just seems incomprehensible to me as anything that people get behind hardcore, the weird key shift on the "i dont care anymore" is interesting until it becomes annoying. she still sounds like something they would play during the end credits of a final fantasy game to me every time i hear her mixed with fake nostalgia for imaginary synthpop or something. 5/10

Things I know about Demi Lovato. 1. She did that confident song which I loathe. 2. This would be a pretty good instrumental. 3. There are worse singers I suppose. 4. too many syllables in a line doesnt sound interesting, it sounds stupid. 5. I blame Nicolas Winding-Refn for a lot of bad pop this year i think. 4/10
