1.) Future Islands, "Tomorrow"

While 2011's "On the Water" was a predictably solid effort from the Baltimore-via-North Carolina synthpop trio, Future Islands' third album lacked a standalone showstopper. "Tomorrow," the A-side to a 2012 seven-inch record the trio released on London's Upset the Rhythm, would have fit the bill: Emotive, soulful and cathartic, it's a slow-paced ballad for a band more known for its danceable grooves. But when singer Sam Herring becomes unhinged -- half-screaming, half-evil guffawing -- two minutes in, it becomes an unmistakable classic for one of the city's most consistently great bands.
