Singles 12/21

Welcome to Amnesty Week, friends, during which TSJ writers submitted tunes to we should’ve paid attention in the last year. The sheer plenitude stunned me; I didn’t review four songs and I still came up with the highest number of blurbs since the pandemic started.

I preferred The Aces’ Haim-adjacent “Daydream” to Haim’s plodding “The Steps” from their otherwise fine album, but besides Traingulo de Amor Bizarro’s horrorcore “Fukushima” and Taemin’s fizzy pleasure “Criminal,” Owen Pallett’s patient-as-a-serial-killer “A Bloody Morning” wowed us most.
