Songs of the Week 152: February 11 – February 17

vodi#5. Vodi – Pressure

This song never quite lives up to the first 45 seconds. It’s a lovely tune no doubt (in fact their entire recent album is a glorious listen). But man, those first 30-45 seconds are soft rock bliss.

sophia bel#4. Sophia Bel – When The Sun Is Good

Catchy pop that would be perfectly at home in an upscale piano bar type environment. Swagger abounds here.

lcaw#3. L C A W Feat. Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Hummingbird

I want to like this so much more than I do. Seems to tease me with every listen with the “this is what I could have been” kinda sound. I’m a harsh critic, so that sounds like I’m not a fan which couldn’t be farther than the truth. Great track. Wanted it to be even greater.

the wombats#2. The Wombats – Cheetah Tongue

These guys should totally play a show with Two Door Cinema Club. What a dance rock party that would be. Haven’t actually had a chance to listen to the new album yet, but I had heard the single a few weeks back and absolutely adore it. Wanted to wait until the album release before sharing. So good.


#1. Loyals – Hold On

Another track I’ve been waiting to share until the album was released (and again, have yet to listen). Just been playing this guy on repeat for the past two weeks. Can’t put my finger on exactly what it is that has me coming back again and again.
