Editor’s Note: Work your way down Travis’ Top 25 singles of the year to find out his #1 pick and then discover a bunch of bonus tracks at the bottom!
25. Ghost Culture – “Giudecca” / “Arms” (tie) – Two tracks from the early frontrunner for 2015′s album of the year. I can’t decide which one I like better, so it’s a tie.

Museum of Love — the duo consisting of Pat Mahoney (drummer for LCD Soundsystem) and Dennis McNany (a.k.a. Jee Day) — made one of my favorite albums of 2014.
So, needless to say, I was very excited when they sent me a DJ mix they made to play on my show last night.
It’s an engrossing mix highlighting their love of house music, featuring modern classics …

Museum of Love + New Build Remixes
Museum of Love’s eponymous debut album was one of my favorite albums of 2014.
Next Friday, they will make their LA debut at the Regent Theater as part of a co-headlining tour with New Build (a group lead by Hot Chip members Al Doyle and Felix Martin). If I didn’t have a radio shift that night, I’d totally be …

Misun – Superstitions
It’s no secret that Misun is one of my favorite bands.
The LA-via-DC group first caught my attention through their consistently great stream of free releases on Soundcloud, each one wildly different from the last, but always super catchy.
This week they released their first full length, “Superstitions“.
It finds Misun gliding between rock, pop, and electronic sounds. Powerhouse lead singer (and group namesake) Misun …

I love following the horse race for summer jam of the year, though I gotta say, 2014′s crop of contenders was one of the weakest that I can remember.
There wasn’t a huge single for everyone to get behind (and inevitably burn out on) through the summer like in years past.
The big winner of the Summer of 2014 (by default) would appear to be Iggy …

Museum-Of-Love-

While James Murphy was the heart, soul, and face of LCD Soundsystem, drummer Pat Mahoney was it’s backbone.
Pounding the skins with metronomic precision for the group’s entire seven year run, Mahoney was the anchor of LCD’s muscular rhythm section.
Three and a half years removed from LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden (immortalized in the film Shut Up And Play The Hits), Pat …
