The Thin Air’s Top 100 Irish Tracks of 2017 (100-51)

thin

Ah, End of Year lists. Where would we be without you? Although the whole process can often skim close to the torturous, few things in this life rival the sheer satisfaction of sifting through a full year of music in order to attempt to carve out some semblance of quality. And whilst descending, close-ended lists such as these are almost exclusively arbitrary exercises nullified by good ol’ subjectivity, there’s something intrinsically important about trying to take a broad snapshot of music released in the twelve months just gone. And make no mistake, it’s been a pretty remarkable year for Irish music. Here’s our take on what stood out best, strongest, and most emphatically of all, from 100-51. Part two to follow tomorrow.
