Heyyyyy! We’re back as Exploding Head Syndrome after taking a lot of November and December off! Yes we know the breaks are just as bad as Elusive Little Comments’ but to remove all fourth wallness, I am just one guy. I speak in third person because not everything is about me and it’s all about spreading music as far and as wide as possible like the most sonically fulfilling STD possible. My real life job that pays me money unlike this site got super busy which meant that when I wasn’t working I was sleeping. Sleeping genuinely became a hobby of mine during that period I think. Anyway, it’s LIST WEEK! Our last week of content for 2014 where we list the best EPs, Tracks and Albums which we either reviewed or checked out over the last twelve months!
Tuesday means the start of our countdown towards the Best Track Of 2015! As we decided to list our top FIFTY tracks of the year the content would be rather large and overwhelming as one giant post, so today we’ll be posting the first half of it. From number 50 to number 26, we will be listing the tracks aswell as providing perhaps one or two lines about why we like the song. We hope you enjoy. Love you.
