Jerry Castle, "Lil Bit"
Get out while the gettin's good, preaches Jerry Castle in this lush jam. The Virginia-raised singer-songwriter who found inspiration for his last album by floating in a sensory-deprivation tank emerges refreshed on his new LP Brand New Hello. Or does he? Peer beneath the sunny vibes of "Lil Bit" and you find a narrator who is fed up with the bullshit of Trump's America and overloaded by the daily propaganda. But Castle's frustration is our gain, as he delivers one of the most instantly catchy – and danceable – songs about being pissed off this year. J.H.
