As 2014 comes to a close, we here at Seven Days are doing a lot of reviewin', revisitin' and reflectin' on the year that was. On the music front, this means selecting our seven favorite local singles and rolling them out each weekday, from December 22 through December 31 — except for Christmas, because Santa.

Today's choice cut: "Extraordinary I," by Write Brothers.

Honestly, given the amount of great music that now BTV expat rapper Learic, aka Devon Ewalt, has produced this year, the dude could fill up a list of the year's best singles all by himself — and we'll hear from him again in this series. But for all his efforts in 2014, Take Flight, his record with producer Dante Vezina as Write Brothers, might be his best.

It's at least his most ambitious and cinematic in scope. Bonus points: See if you can count the number of pop-culture references in the "Far Side / Pharcyde" bars in the first verse of "Extraordinary I." (Hint: It's a lot.)
