The Best Indie / Alternative Songs of 2017

After an entire year of listening to submissions, we’re proud to present our annual playlist that features our favourite tracks that make up the best indie / alternative tracks! There are some artists who you will recognize (ex. Alvvays, Slowdive, The War On Drugs, Cut Copy, Portugal. The Man), but there’s others who might be brand new to you (ex. Blood Moon, Amber Arcades).

Listen at any time of the day / night, with or without headphones, over lunch, on the bus, at work, or while entertaining!

Listed alphabetically by artist (except for the first four songs)
