#5. Aggressive Swans – About You
Newcomers Aggressive Swans with their upbeat pop-rock track that is sure to be heard in all the hip clothing stores around town very soon. It’s just got that “sound”. H&M will be alllll over this. “But it’s your favorite sound”
#4. K. Michelle – Hard To Do
Filing this one squarely into the category of “guilty pleasure”. I really don’t know how I came across this now two year old track, but I did and frankly I’ve played it wayyyy too much.
#3. Rico Greene – Neverland
Back to back weeks of Rico Greene’s smooth RnB.
#2. Nite Swim – Convertible
One of those “this should be #1 of the week” songs. Love what the boys did with the vocals. May be the sexiest of songs you’ll hear all year.
#1. Saveus – Time Can Heal A Man
Oof what a track. The choir backing is what has me hitting repeat on this guys. Such a full sounding track that’s completely singable and totally danceable. Early contender for song of the year in my books.
#5. Yaeji – Raingurl
I truly don’t have words to describe this song. It’s burrowed it’s way into my brain and now I’m a slave to the repeat button.
#4. Kyoti – Avalon
It’s almost as if the dam burst when the year ticked over to 2018. I’m still sharing tracks I lucked upon in the first week of January. Avalon is one of those tracks… a catchy indie pop rock track and my introduction to Kyoti.
#3. Rico Greene – Another One
While DJ Khaled may rule the meme world for the slogan “Another One”, but Rico Greene’s recent release is definitely worth your time if you are at all into RnB.
#2. YesYou Feat. Michael Marshall – My Heart
YesYou have to be one of the most under-appreciated bands in my library. They never really are top of my mind when I think of who I’ve been listening too, but then when I look back they seem to be either remixing, featured or releasing an abundance of tracks that I’m totally into. Sneaky good they are.
#1. Good Girl And The Bad Times – The Bell
This one’s grown on me. One of those tracks that came on during playlist shuffle and I paused and thought “what, who is this?!?”.
