Songs of the Week 87: November 13 – November 19

bearson#5. Bearson Feat. Natalola – One Step At A Time

Some uplifting dance pop from Bearson starts this week off, along with some gorgeous, funky vocals from Natalola.

fairchild#4. Fairchild – Start Again

Another brooding rock release from Fairchid. These guys are doing a great job reviving the rock scene of old with neon sounds, soaring guitars and some powerful vocals.

aaron-fontwell#3. Aaron Fontwell – Crystal Coated

Did I mention reviving sounds of old? This sounds like it’s right out of the early 90s grime scene. Really digging the debut release from Aaron Fontwell. Very interested to see what direction he goes with for his next track.


#2. Isabel – Stay

Had a hard time choosing top spot this week. Could easily have been Stay, which is the follow up to the lovely Fences that was released near the beginning of this year. This is some straight-up captivating pop music… something that’d be right at home in a swanky piano bar downtown New York City.

sleigh-bells#1. Sleigh Bells – I Can Only Stare

I don’t love everything Sleigh Bells creates, but man when I do like their stuff I’m addicted. Their signature “start with loud, powerful vocals then switch to softer, background crooning” gets me every time.
