Songs of the Week 112: May 7 – May 13

tony romera#5. Tony Romera – Feel

I don’t typically go for futuristic-sounding electro like this. And frankly, I’m not too into the harsher verses. Yet, something keeps drawing me into this track. It’s got some serious groove when it’s not trying to bleed your ears dry.

hotel garuda#4. Lorde – Green Light (Hotel Garuda Remix) //

Lorde’s Green Light is one of my favorite releases of 2017. Hotel Garuda give us a great reason to revisit the single with their slight rework that kinda evens the track out a bit (whereas the original has a lot of really high highs and low lows).

oliver tank#3. Oliver Tank – High With You

This one takes a while to get going, but honestly I love the whole journey. It’s a slow track, but the repetition towards the end is gorgeous. The entire song exudes serenity and peacefulness. Actually reminds me a bit of some of Beck’s stuff.

embrz#2. Embrz Feat. Meadowlark – Heartlines

Classic case of a track that I wasn’t too into on first listen, but then it burrowed itself into my brain and now it’s been at or near the top of my playlist all week. That chorus and all of it’s sappy poppiness gets me every single time. It’s a “let’s go summer enjoy summer” type of song.

gents#1. Gents – Since Forever

Super impressed by the entire album Gents just released. It’s giving me some major Tesla Boy vibes. Since Forever is my fave track from About Time, but honestly the entire album is glorious. Go listen to it. Now.
