Songs of the Week 159: April 15 – April 21

her#5. Her – Shuggie

I’d already featured a bunch of songs from Her’s debut album before it was released, but knowing how awesome they are it was a good bet to see at least one more track come out of it that had yet to be released as a single.

fabich#4. Fabich Feat. James Vickery – Overtime

It’s really be some time since I came across a smashing prog dance track. I don’t think this is it, but it’s close. It’s almost a tease of a dance track… makes you think it’s gonna just blow up at any second into a full on rager but instead settles down into something more controlled.

bravestation#3. Bravestation – Deeper Than Oceans

Vibes that sound like they should be from the late 80s, but still would be right at home in some nice upscale piano bar in 2018.

georgie kieffer#2. Geordie Kieffer – Touch Me Tease Me

Not sure how this track made it all the way up to #2, but here we are. It’s … something. The video is also a must watch. As odd as it is, I can’t get it out of my head. Plus… that dude bum man. So hot.

mad clown san e#1. Mad Clown & San E – Butterfly //

Yep – still obsessed with KPop. In fact, this song actually unseated the new Drake track last week. I was so torn about having two real strong releases in the same week that I instead shifted this one to this week. Again, a fun video can be found should you be so inclined. KPop is brilliant.

Songs of the Week 158: April 8 – April 14

whinnie williams#5. Whinnie Williams – Sorry Now

If this doesn’t stick in your head, you aren’t human. Painfully catchy chorus.

aquilo#4. Aquilo – Seagull

Aquilo returns this week (or last week) with Seagull – another in their long line of standout pop tracks.

bravestation#3. Bravestation – Gemini

Came across Bravestation this past week through a release of another song (which just mayyyyy be featured next week). Doing my “listen to every track by a new band ever” routine, Gemini stuck out as probably my favorite of all their tracks. Something real charming about this.

tom misch#2. Tom Misch Feat. Loyle Carner- Water Baby

There’s something about Tom Misch’s voice and sound that is incredibly calming. While I do love the verse brought by Loyle Carner, I can’t but help to do a couch wiggle to the soft vocals of Tom.

drake#1. Drake – Nice For What

Stupid catchy Drake. I swear to god I don’t know how he does it. He just has this knack for producing music that is irresistible. I will say that this track has worn on me a bit since the first listen (which literally had me thinking it was going to be top track of 2018 after 1 play). Just gotta learn the lyrics of this bad boy so I can sing along while I bust a move.
