Songs of the Week 84: October 23 – October 29

the-knocks#5. The Knocks Feat. Sam Nelson Harris – Heat

Oh hey, it’s new Knocks! A ridiculously catchy hook is the highlight of this track for me. I’ve found myself being less and less in love with The Knocks over the past year or two, so I’m glad to see something from them rekindle my interest.

wet#4. Wet – The Middle

Part of my really really wants to be obsessed with Wet. Yet, it just doesn’t seem to happen. I always end up growing a bit tired of their tracks for whatever reason. That said, their latest track The Middle is gorgeous. Starts off with the recognizable Wet sound but quickly changes pace into something with a bit more buzz than what Wet fans are probably accustom too.


#3. Allen Tate – Being Alone

Allen Tate has one of my favorite voices in music (and if you recognize it, that’s probably because he’s part of the also-awesome band San Fermin). Again, I want to love this song so much (which seems to be a familiar theme this week). It starts off AMAZING, but kinda wears on me by the end. It’s a lovely little tune though and I mean really. It’s Allen Tate.

leo-kalyan#2. Leo Kalyan – White Light

Leo Kalyan released his Outside In ep a few days ago and well, it’s just lovely. I’ve been a huge Leo Kalyan fan since I first stumbled upon his music, and White Light is not just my favorite track from his latest release, but maybe my favorite Leo track ever.

xaxo#1. XAXO – Looking For Nothing

Another band releasing their latest ep over the last few days was XAXO… someone who for me, came out of absolutely no where a few months ago and now have tracks all over my “favorites” playlist. I find them incredibly unique, with such a wide range of sounds. Plus who can resist a good falsetto? I mean really now.

Songs of the Week 83: October 16 – October 22

allday#5. Fortunes – Justin Bieber (Allday Remix) //

A genre-bending hip hop track from Fortunes that gets some new verses courtesy of Allday. While Allday’s verses are on point, the distinct sound of that chorus is really what carries this track.

kehlani#4. Kehlani Feat. Little Simz – Table

Lots of hip hop to start this week apparently. Kehlani is definitely my favorite female hip hop/rnb artist these days. Everything she puts out I eat up. Table, her latest release, is no exception… with some smooth feature vocals at the end from Little Simz.

ishdarr#3. ishDARR – Mucho Mango

I wasn’t joking when I said it was the week of hip hop. Love the entire track, but honestly this one shot up my ranks after they used that sample from Lil’ Troy. It’s perfectly weaved into the chorus and has me hitting repeat on this one constantly.

matt-woods#2. Matt Woods – Nothing Less

YAAAAY. New Matt Woods. It’s been much too long, but the wait was worth it. Nothing Less is spectacular. If you like Chet Faker, Jack Garrett etc., be sure to go check out what Matt Woods is doing cause it’s amazing.

loframes#1. Kraak & Smaak Feat. Cleopold – Alone With You (Loframes Remix) //

Ho hum. Another week, another top remix by the Loframes boys. It’s getting silly now. Every song they touch is catchy as hell and utterly danceable. “Bending rules for the boys” has been stuck in my head for days. What a line.
