Kavinsky’s Nightcall was an ear-shattering song. The Weeknd is (currently) a pop-shattering star. EVALYN’s combined both here in a pretty unique spin on mashups. Honestly I was hooked the second she started down the chorus of Nightcall … it will get me every time.
Seductive R&B from NEVR in the form of Secret Places. Reminds me a lot of Dornik. Been a while since we had a good baby-making tune grace the weekly charts…
After just mentioning how it’d been a dry spell of baby-makin music, I now realize that this week is chalk full of it. Perhaps the sexiest of them all is MAR’s newest track. It has a real 80s vibe going too with the sporadic synths in the background… but really the chorus is really where the song shines for me.
Some songs make me smile. AM Kidd’s If I Could is one of those songs. Just has a certain charm about it. Makes me think about going on the ferris wheel or something with that certain someone in your life … the feeling of life not getting any better than that moment you are in.
It was not easy to choose top spot this week. Any of Mar, AM Kidd or Magic City Hippies could have been #1. But there must be order, and so I went with the song I’ve played most over the past week. Fanfare is, much like AM Kidd’s If I Could, a track that seems so carefree and fun. I find myself bobbing along to track as it shifts from poppy hip hop to indie rock.
