Songs of the Week 278: August 2 – August 8

#5. Two Another Feat. Arno Faraji – Just A Phase

Two Another are starting to take over my Spotify. Seem that with each passing week they drop another track that manages to make the cut. Arno Faraji’s vocals are pretty slick here as well.

#4. Gashi – Lies

Easily my favorite track from the recently released 1984. Dark and brooding.

#3. Curren$y – Coast 2 Coast

At this point I don’t even know if I need to write words anymore about this dude. He releases an album seemingly every week, and despite some of it sounding tired and worn our there is almost always at least one track that manages to make it thru the cut and get some major air time on my playlist.

#2. Balu Brigada – Part Time

Another feel good track from the aptly titled Feel Good Mixtape. Got a few more coming from these boys.

#1. Brasstracks Feat. Col3trane – Missed Your Call

The lads known for infusing their tracks with brass sounds, they benefit here from some brilliant vocals from Col3trane, resulting in an up-beat summer track.

Songs of the Week 277: July 26 – August 1

#5. Remi Wolf – Sauce

Give it a listen. Then give it a few more. I swear there’s almost a trance-like sound to Sauce.

#4. Nick Ward – Aubrey Plaza

It could be because my first introduction to Nick Ward was the music video for Aubrey Plaza, complete with wings and a guitar-laden bedroom-pop sound that I immediately though of Sufjan Stevens. Ok to be real it’s probably just the wings. That said, there’s some quirky goodness here that evokes Sufjan, which should be enough to give it a go.

#3. Merci, Mercy – Fall Apart

I know I say this basically every week, but it was tough to pick a top song this week. The top three tracks were all killer. So treat Fall Apart like a #1/#2 track!

#2. Mome Feat. Ricky Ducati – Got It Made

There are some serious Justice/Daft Punk vibes here, even down to the Soundcloud artwork. If you dig this, go check out the music video. It’s equally as awesome.

#1. Balu Brigada – Weekend

Straight up feel-good tracks are what we need in abundance during the downtimes of COVID, social issues and everything else going on in the world today. Weekend has it, in spades. It’s also just cute as hell.
