Songs of the Week 170: July 1 – July 7

dave matthews band#5. Dave Matthews Band – Virginia In The Rain

Dave Matthews Band is comfort music. It’s the stuff you can put on when you have people over and it’ll never go over badly, no matter their musical taste. Virginia In The Rain is my favorite track from the new release, Come Tomorrow.

hatchie#4. Hatchie – Sleep

Sleep is one of those tracks you know you’ll love or hate 5 seconds into the song. It’s kinda brash and in your face, but in the most poppy-way possible. I’m completely hooked.

dnce#3. DNCE – Man On Fire

Half reggae, half dance pop. Surprisingly, it works… there’s a “goddamn this is stuck in my head” feel to this one. Love the last 40 seconds of this bad boy.

hansaa & soso#2. Hansaa & Soso Feat. Emma Sameth – Nights //

I love me some haunting music. Nights might be at the top of my list for tracks that kinda creep me out. The chorus, and the way it kinda clashes with the vocals of Emma Sameth right before it, works beautifully. Not a HUGE fan of the trappy post-chorus stuff… but I can live with.

kole#1. Kole – Let It Burn

Not a lot to say here. Catchy indie-pop music with a singable hook+chorus that’ll be stuck in your head for days? Sign me up.
