The Top Ten - week ending 01-16-2015

I'm a couple of days late getting this, but lots happening.
On Friday morning Pitchfork broke the story of Frank Ocean's cover of the Isley Brothers song, "At Your Best" for Aaliyah, in honour of what would have been her 36th birthday. It's such a beautiful rendition, I just had to see it join the playlist. To make last minute room, I decide to create a "Bubbling Under" category, a holding place for songs about to join the Top Ten. As we patiently await new material from Frank, this is a surprisingly nice song to hold us over.
Not too many other surprises. Mr. Cortiz remains seated atop the list. Everyone else shifts around a bit.

1. Alex Cortiz - Muerte de un Torero
2. Karen Souza - Wicked Game
3.. Alex Cortiz - B Chill
4. Royksopp - Coup De Grace
5. Jojo Effect - That’s What You Get
6. Peter Pearson - Yesterday’s Dreams
7. SINE - Wolke 7
8. Molly Johnson - Don’t Explain
9. Sven Van Hees - Sulco Brasilier
10. Irregular Expression - Setsuko

Bubbling Under:
Frank Ocean - At Your Best (You Are Love)
Pablo Nouvelle - Best Thing (feat. Norma Jean Martine)
Rafael Lukjanik - Red
