Old-School, New-School: World Cafe's 2016 Jams

Whether you go for the throwback sounds of Lake Street Dive (left) or the high-tech electronica of Moby (right), 2016 had plenty to offer.

With just over a month to go until the new year, the season of "best-of" lists is upon us. It's a time for celebrating the musical gems that made you hit repeat all year, or for discovering some great songs and artists you might have missed.

To ease you into a list-making mood, we at World Cafe came up with a couple of fun categories celebrating a few great songs from 2016: five "old-school" jams with a retro feel, picked by David Dye, and five cutting-edge "new-school" tracks, chosen by Talia Schlanger. (And you may discover, as we did, that these categories are more fluid than you might think.)
