Songs of the Week 125: August 6 – August 13

malena zavala#5. Malena Zavala – Should I Try

This track sounds like it belongs in a different era. The lonely plucks of the guitar usher in a sense of nostalgia. Real pretty debut track of Malena Zavala.

kid froopy#4. Kid Froopy – Drive Slow

This week is full of songs that have this inherent “cool factor” going for them. Drive Slow is the first of that (not that the Malena Zavala track isn’t cool… it just doesn’t have that same flair about it).

eventide#3. Eventide – Captions

Discovered Eventide a week or two ago, and had a tough time choosing which track to feature from their huge catalog of quality stuff. Came down to Captions and It’s Okay, so if you aren’t digging Captions above then go check It’s Okay out, as they are drastically different tracks. Artists who can add some versatility to their sound are always killer in my books.

le youth#2. Le Youth Feat. Ava Max – Clap Your Hands

Perhaps the industry leader in making “cool” music, Le Youth kills it with his new single Clap Your Hands. Gotta give mad props to Ava Max as well, as her vocals are on point. That first verse especially is magical.

quinn lewis#1. Quinn Lewis – Slipping

I could not stop playing this track the first few days after hearing it. It got me pretty good, to the point I’ve almost worn out it’s welcome already. It’s got the catchy lyrics and radio-ready chorus to get stuck in your head for days.
