“Dull” – Microwave. Thus crunchy, grungy track sounds a lot like something Manchester Orchestra might have done when they were sussing out their more dramatic sound.

“New” – Family Friends. A strong, mid-90s vibe alt-rock radio vibe here.

“Stars” – Hum. If I’m sharing songs with one-syllable titles and Clinton-era overtones, I might as well go back to the actual age and pull a classic.

“Fix “ – Hazel English. She makes lovely music well suited for spring.

“Aboard My Train” – Kevin Morby. He landed on my ’16 Favorites list on the strength of several strong songs and his Kansas City roots. His newest album is out in June and, based on the early singles, sounds like it will continue his run of charming, slow-building rockers.
