Culled from my Spotify favorites playlist, here’s my annual roundup of the tracks that got the most play this year at Casa
JMG. Some of them appeared here during the year, some did not.

1. John Grant – Pale Green Ghosts
(Openly gay, openly HIV+, very Dead Can Dance.)
2. Boy George – King Of Everything
(One of his loveliest ballads ever.)
3. The Knife – Full Of Fire
(“Liberals giving me the nerve itch.”)
4. David Bowie – Love Is Lost
(Hello Steve Riech Mix by James Murphy.)
5.  Nine Inch Nails – Copy Of A
(And the title track from Came Back Haunted.)
6. Brandon Maclean – Stupid
(Plus the Stereogamous remix on Spotify!)
7. Holy Ghost! – Dumb Disco Ideas
(Delicious nu-disco out of Brooklyn.)
8. Young Galaxy – Pretty Boy
(The Peaking Lights remix is very New Order-y.)
9. BT – Skylarking
(Glorious trance that evokes the mid-90s.)
10.  Lindstrøm – Lanzarote
(Instrumental retro Italo featuring Todd Terje.)

FKA Twigs – Water Me
Bright Light Bright Light – In Your Care
