I love this song by MNDR (aka Amanda Warner), the dance pop diva from New York who’s poised to blow up any day now. (That is, if doing a song with Mark Ronson and Q-Tip isn’t blown up enough already.) Her four-song EP released last year was pretty great, a short and sweet introduction to a significant talent, full of danceable beats and swelling sing-along refrains. “Cut Me Out” continues to build on that, boasting more twitchy beats and sparkling synths topped off with her catchiest chorus yet. Suggested listening place: in your car, with the windows down, on an unseasonably warm and sunny day in early March. Woot!

Every year we talk about doing a “Favorite Songs” list, but we never do because it always ends up being so huge and unwieldy (we like a lot of music, alright?!). But this year we decided to just break down and do it, only here’s the catch: these are our Favorite Songs that DIDN’T appear on any of our Favorite Albums. So no matter how amazing “Cold War” or “Ambling Alp” or “We Used To Wait” might be, they won’t be on this list. Instead this gives us a chance to highlight a bunch of other fantastic artists who rocked our cubicle this year!

They’re in alphabetical order, and without any blurbs, so all you have to do is listen! Enjoy!
