Metric | Gold Guns Girls
The Field Mice | Emma's House
Jaga Jazzist | Tocatta
Chris Bell | You and Your Sister
Billy Nicholls | Girl from New York

Metric's song is a top 500 for me, so no contest - I've always loved Field Mice's twee pop and Jaga Jazzist is a serious grower. Very good batch of songs.
