Daughter: “Doing the Right Thing" 

While sad, if not depressed in tone, the breadth and breath of life in this song is astounding. The narrator, while isolated, has a way of talking about the world and herself that reminds me of a Margret Atwood character. This song’s dynamic doesn’t just develop, it ages. “Doing the Right Thing,” off of Daughter’s new record Not to Disappear, is my first favorite song of the year.
