#5. Fuzzy Sun – Come Take A Bite
Got a major backlog to work through here… and it seems that with each passing week there’s more good stuff released than there is time to share it! Fuzzy Sun’s Come Take A Bite is like the eye of the storm – calm, but you can almost sense that before and after was absolute mayhem.
#4. Julian Bell – Red Love
Gettin some mad Gallant vibes here, and that’s a great thing because Gallant is nice times.
#3. Elohim – I Want You
With a chorus like this, I Want You must be a real banger live. I’ve been obsessed with this for the past few weeks (did I mention I had a backlog going…?!).
#2. Galamatias – South
Is this not the smoothest stuff you’ve heard all year?! Such a groovy track.
#1. Lais – Seeing Things
Another track I’d put into the “smooth as fuck” bin. Love me some Lais, and I can thank Spotify discover for alerting me to his latest, Seeing Things. I do think the latter half of the track really disappoints, but the first minutes and a half is amongst my favorite minute and a half in music.
#5. Brain Tan – Comfort Object
Half shoegaze, half surf pop. Brain tan’s entire recent EP is a chilled-out adventure and ridiculously good.
#4. Twin Shadow – When You’re Wrong
A veteran of the blog, Twin Shadow returns with another dramatic track. While he’s got a signature sound, each track still comes across sounding unique as hell.
#3. Jay Summer – Look The Part
Came across Jay Summer a few weeks ago and loved a bunch of tracks, but somehow they never seem to stick in my mind enough to crack the weekly top 5. Not that they aren’t great (cause they are), but for whatever reason it’s not sticky. It’s just solid soft rock pop.
#2. James Gillespie – Dead In The Water
Been a while since I featured James Gillespie. Loving the grumbling, husky new track Dead In The Water.
#1. Studio_Dad Feat. Fat Tony & Wade08 – Too Turnt
There was no way this wasn’t making top spot. Even if it’s going to grow tiresome fast, something about the name “Studio Dad” and the track titled “Too Turnt” requires some airtime. And honestly, it’s got some legit catch to it.
