Here's what we played:

"Man on the Moon" - R.E.M.

"Cities" - Talking Heads

"Riding with the King" - John Hiatt

All We Are (courtesy of the artist,

Over the last few years, The Alternate Side staff has established its own New Year's tradition, picking young bands and artists who we think will make a big impact as the next twelve months unfold. In 2014 we chose a lineup of fresh faces that included FKA Twigs, Wolf Alice, Eagulls, Ásgeir, Haerts and Courtney Barnett.

For our Breaking Bands of 2015, TAS staffers Russ Borris, Alisa Ali, Eric Holland, Kara Manning, and Sarah Wardrop are putting our faith behind All We Are, Years & Years, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jack + Eliza, Aquilo, DD Dumbo, PPL MVR, Dilly Dally, Amason, Dead Man Fall, Only Real and others that we're convinced will shine in the year ahead. Read our reasons why we think you'll like them too  ... and listen to each artist.
