In what is fast becoming a Stereogum tradition, we’ve once again conspired with master bootlegger team9 for a celebration of the year in singles. Of course “the year in singles” is a loaded term coming from us — relatively massive as they are, Arcade Fire, M.I.A. and Band Of Horses aren’t exactly Hot 100 fare — so we opened the door to OneRepublic and Sean Kingston. It’s not a time capsule look-back without a dash of some ubiquitous pop tracks, anyway. All free and just for you, presented on this day made for remembering and rejoicing and drinking. If you’re DJing tonight for an indie-friendly crowd, add these to your playlist and thank us tomorrow.
