It’s the end of the year and people are publishing lists of the best singles. You know what that means: indie rock songs heard by several! If the list belongs to PopMatters, it also means soul throwbacks, top 40 hits, and other sundries (like Ambrose Akinmusire! one of my least favorite songs from his album, but still). Also… what’s this?… reputed Best Singer on the Continent Julión Álvarez, in at #48, with “Y Así Fue”, a bounding high five of a song. I may have had something to do with this.
