For a while now we’ve taken the opportunity at the end of every passing quarter to arrange and tabulate our favorite new music. It’s a helpful exercise, even for us your faithful bloggers, to keep track of all the music being released, sometimes completely by surprise (as is the trend this year). With 2014 now three-quarters finished, we’ve updated the list of our favorite songs of the year. The top 60 are represented below, but we’ve also updated our social playlists on Rdio and Spotify, so that they can be taken with you, if you wish.

Let us know what we missed: @pmablog
