The Top 30 MTL Songs of 2016

Listen to the best tunes made in Montreal this year.


5. “Plaisirs Américains” by Femminielli

“The Real America: Debauched, depraved, grotesque, kitschy and raunchy.”

4. “In the Name Of” by Basia Bulat

“Like ‘Take Me to Church’, only you’re actually being taken to church instead of being forced to listen to some dreadfully boring one-hit wonder dude.”

3. “Naïve to the Bone” by Marie Davidson

“It’s 2016. Get real.” (Alternate: “Lights Out” by Essaie Pas.)

2. “Where They @” by Dead Obies

“What started as Mustard-lite became the sound of Rap Keb seizing its moment.”

1. “Glowed Up” by Kaytranada (feat. Anderson .Paak)

“Not only did Kaytra utterly dominate 2016, but he also looked and sounded like he was having the most fun doing it.”
