Anyone who says new music in 2019 isn’t absolutely great simply isn’t paying attention. 

The year has given us so many great tunes, indie617 is celebrating its halfway mark — and the long holiday weekend — by counting down the Top 100 Best Songs of 2019… so far. 

We’re blasting through a massive hundo of great songs from the first-half of the year: Vampire Weekend, Alex Lahey, Jack Perrett, Sharon Van Etten, Hatchie, Clairo, Tame Impala, Toro y Moi, Orville Peck… ok, ok, you gotta tune in to hear ‘em all, throughout the July 4 holiday weekend.

The countdown starts Wednesday (July 3) at 2 p.m. and runs through the weekend, so there will be plenty of chances to catch all 100.

This Top 100 list is Quesday, Song of the Week, and the combined forces of indie617 and our awesome listeners all packaged in one vital countdown. For the naysayers, and the ones who already know! It’s presented and powered by Boston’s Alternative Streaming Radio, indie617.
