John Aielli’s Top Tracks of 2017

John Aielli hosts Eklektikos Monday through Thursday from 6 – 9 a.m. These are his top 6 songs of the year:


1) Alt-J – In Cold Blood

Very dark and so catchy; it’s just addictive.

2) David Ramirez – Watching From a Distance

A very thoughtful and beautiful song, beautifully sung.

3) Brian Pounds – Rattle in my Bones

He just recorded in a live session in studio 1A, an example of a young singer with a wonderful talent committing himself totally to the art and a wonderful group of musicians with him.

4) Grizzly Bear – Mourning Sound

I still don’t know what this song’s about, but I don’t care, I like it anyway.

5) St. Vincent – New York

My clear favorite of all of her songs, a hauntingly lovely melody with a great poignant arch.

6) Secret Sisters – He’s Fine

Two gals singing a sort of country song full of irony, sadness, and tight harmonies.
