Narrowing down 365 days of great music to a list of 30 records is near impossible, but we figured it out! With a lot of amazing tracks not making the cut, we have put together our list of the 30 best tracks of this past year. From epic collaborations to Soundcloud released diss records, our list has a little bit of everything. A few veterans dominated our list this year, but a lot of emerging artists found spots high on our list as well. We won’t spoil too much for you, check out the Top 30 Tracks of 2015 below and send us a tweet @TheEarlyReg to tell us what you think!
Following an arguably weak year for albums, 2015 has seen a lot of great projects and many unexpected ones as well. While this year we saw the highly anticipated return of Adele, patient fans are still awaiting Frank Ocean’s sophomore album and Kanye West’s Swish. But where Frank and Kanye have left music fans hanging, new comers like Bryson Tiller, Alessia Cara, GoldLink, BOOTS, Halsey and more have put out some great albums to help kick off their relatively young careers. 2015 though was also a great year for some heavyweights, of course we’re referring to artists like Drake, Future, Kendrick Lamar and even pop superstars like One Direction and Justin Bieber. In just one day, November 13th, the music world saw more great releases than it did in a span of months in 2014. Cheers to hoping 2016 delivers as well as 2015 did!
Tame Impala’s excellent first two records, Innerspeaker and Lonerism found Kevin Parker portrayed as a reclusive prisoner of his own imagination amongst sounds funnelled from the 60’s and 70’s that sounded like remastered vinyl cuts from long ago. It was a bold and untravelled path, but as the entire music world took notice of Tame Impala’s imaginative lane, music seemed to latch on to this faux-psychedelia sound and emulated and copied the blueprint until “psychedelic” aspects of music seemed to bleed across all genres. With Tame Impala’s latest release, Currents, Kevin finds himself stepping outdoors and exploring the beauties and horrors of human interaction, all while transitioning to a more electronic revamp of their past, established sound—and again, Tame Impala has struck gold.
From their forthcoming Currents album, Tame Impala has released another official music video for their track ‘Cause I’m a Man’. While this is the second official music video for the record, this one is definitely our favorite, as it stars puppets. Currents comes out on July 17th, and you can definitely expect to hear more from Tame Impala until then.

Wow! What an opening day for Coachella 2015, and The Early Registration teamed up with Pigeons & Planes to catch all the best moments. Kicking off the iconic music festival this year, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival saw amazing performances from Vic Mensa, Lil B, Alabama Shakes, Azealia Banks, Action Bronson, AC/DC, Tame Impala, Lykke Li and many more! And how are this year’s art installments? They even top last year’s, as the Indio festival spent more money on art in 2015 than ever before.
