Songs of the Week 160: April 22 – April 29

cam gainley#5. Cameron Gainley – Miles And Miles

Something here seems to put me into a trance and just absorbs my attention. Kinda like when someone with a really quiet voice is telling a super interesting story and so you have to lean in to not miss anything. This song is that person telling a story.

kai straw#4. Kai Straw – Rolls

Kai Straw sneaky released Gun this past month and somehow I missed it until just a few days ago. Lots of quality there – Rolls is the one that stuck with me most.

seth xvi#3. Seth XVI – Your Taste

One of those tracks that works the minimalist thing real well and takes advantage of silence.

the paper kites#2. The Paper Kites – St. Clarity (Mahogany Sessions Version)

I’m usually not a huge fan of all these “sessions” type versions that seemingly every band does now. However, I can appreciate that some people love it and there are definitely times the sessions version will trump the studio. This is one of those times. Beautiful rendition of St. Clarity (which oddly enough wasn’t really one of my favorites off the album).

khalid#1. Khalid Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & 6lack – OTW

Khalid continues to dominate the airwaves, now partnering with Ty & 6lack on OTW. Super catchy, made for radio and just a nice time overall.
