TEN TOP ROCK/POP AND ROOTS SONGS FROM 2018 YOU MUST DOWNLOAD NOW-BY JOHN EMMS

There is still great rock n’ roll being made.

These ten tracks are essential from 2018

I know what you are saying it’s all been done before.

You’re right.

If you are into good songs, here’s 10

These tracks are not in any particular order.

The Trews-  Leave it Alone. From the album Civilianaires-Power, killer hooks and great vocals. Wow.

Paul McCartney-C’Mon To Me-Nobody saw this coming. Macca rocks it down. From the album Egypt Station.

Father John Misty-Mr Tillman-Possibly one of the best new songwriters in the last 5 years.  From the album God’s Favorite Customer…Love it

The Arkells-Hand Me Downs. Is there a better live and songwriting band then these guys? Don’t think so-From the album Rally Cry

Elvis Costello and the Imposters-Under Lime-From the album Look Now. This track is as potent as his early material.

Tribe Royal-Holding On-Wow., simply gorgeous track. Like a throwback of Big Star meets the pop side of Sloan-From the EP The Road to Muscle Shoals.

Marcus King Band-Where I’m Headed-The best new musicians are few and Marcus is on the short list. An astounding guitarist and killer band.-From the album Carolina Confessions.

Liam Gallagher-I’m All I Need-Love this track which was released in 2018, but the album As You Were came out in 2017. Killer!!!!

Arctic Monkeys-Anyways-Straight out of a John Lennon solo album sound. OMG for sure. The b side of their new single 2018

Paul Weller-Mayfly-The acoustic side of the Modfather. Superb track from the album True Meanings.
