Songs of the Week 132: September 24 – September 30

cut copy#5. Cut Copy – Black Rainbows

One of my first true loves in music released their latest album this month. In my opinion, of all the albums they’ve released since In Ghost Colours, this is the most similar to that piece of brilliance.

#4. Majik – Talk To Me

Really dig the style of Majik – something about those smokey vocals sets them apart from the other billion acts that are currently fighting for our ears in the new world of RnB that artists like The Weeknd have ushered in over the last 5 years.

#3. Martin Luke Brown – Opalite

Everytime I listen to this track I give it another half star in my little rating system. It seems to get better with age, and has a good sense of dread building for the duration of the track (and if you know me, you know I like a song with angst or looming dread).

#2. Judas – Ceasefire

Safe, radio-ready pop rock at #2 this week. Hadn’t heard of Judas before, but have been digging Ceasefire for the past week.

#1. Odesza Feat. Kelsey Bulkin – Divide

I love this album so much. It actually somewhat “re-ignited” my love for music again, as frankly I hadn’t been crazy in love with any band or album in quite some time. Next to the standout track I shared last week featuring Leon Bridges, Divide is right up there on the “must listens” for me. Really love the vocals from Kelsey Bulkin.
