Well, what a year for music has 2014 been. In addition to highlights from all the brilliant albums released, there are always a multitude of single songs released by up and coming bands, experimental artists, one-off side projects / collaborations, one hit wonders and established groups previewing an upcoming release. Here’s where we indulge our love for the best songs of the year, based only on the strength of the individual song.

If you’ve been following the big Australian public countdown of the year’s top 100 songs for a while, you may have noticed that the quality of music has significantly dropped in recent years. Well here is your alternative soundtrack to any festivities that may occur this Monday, where the quality of every single song is guaranteed.

If you haven’t heard of some of these songs, don’t let that deter you! The premise of The Breakdown is introducing you to new and underground music that is ALWAYS catchy and listenable. Every song on this list is effing awesome. Just put it on!

Celebrate the miracle that is music for its quality, not for its popularity. Enjoy!
