Proudly presenting some select highlights and standouts from this year's Week in Pop: 2016 features with our annual Year in Pop review edition; photograph by Sjimon Gompers.

Dedicated & committed to the cause weekly & yearly, Impose’s Week in Pop remains steadfast in showcasing an array of exclusive insights, interviews, and debuts, and guest selections from all of your favorites while keeping you up to date with all the breaking buzz & surveys that follow the comeuppance of tomorrow’s provocateurs of the new schools. All of this year’s Week in Pop features would not be possible however without the editorial assists from Meredith Schneider, & former Impose alum Caitlin Greene, Sam Lefebvre, Jes Skolnik, Derek Evers, Blake Gillespie, & a countless fleet of international A&Rs/PRs/liaisons & label bosses who tirelessly work behind the scenes to make this happen every Friday.

At this time we also would like to recognize and give special thanks to all of the year’s accomplished & illustrious artists who have graced Week in Pop with their exclusive guest selections from the likes of Madeira, Dude York, Emily Yacina, Jordannah Elizabeth, Frankie Cosmos, Lushlife, Pete Astor, Porches, Liphemra, Kristin Kontrol, Essaie pas, The Veldt, Open Mike Eagle, Antwon, A.R. Kane, Angel Du$t, Young Fathers, MUNA, Chris Cohen, Eagulls, Homeboy Sandman, Japanese Breakfast, Maria Usbeck, Gigi Masin & Tempelhof, Hologram Teen, Leisure Birds, Adult Jazz, Wymond Miles, LVL UP, Jay Som, Total Slacker, JEFF the Brotherhood, Future Islands, Hoops, Psychic TV, Cold Cave, PWR BTTM, Sammus, Dinowalrus, Itasca, Sunflower Bean, The Radio Dept., Weyes Blood, D.R.A.M., Skinny Girl Diet, Communist Daughter, Factory Floor, Iron Reagan, The Wedding Present, Berner, Serengeti & Sad13 (oka Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz).
