Songs of the Week 171: July 8 – July 14

extremely bad man#5. Extremely Bad Man Feat. Alexis Moraites – Stay (Part 2)

The perfect song for that lazy Sunday idling in the park or on the couch for hours on end.

roosevelt#4. Roosevelt – Under the Sun

There’s something about all of Roosevelt’s tracks that manage to keep me interested, but don’t really get me totally hooked. I’m kinda on the precipice of being absolutely in love with every single Roosevelt track, but it just never goes over the edge.

chromeo#3. Chrome Feat. Amber Mark – Just Friends

I’ve probably said this before (as I know I’ve featured Chromeo previously), but I’m not really a huge Chrome fan. Yet, I believe this is the 2nd Chrome track in under a month. Go figure. Really digging Amber Mark’s lines. Super sassy. I also really dig it when artists have “conversations” in songs. The back and forth between Chrome & Amber Mark is great.

panic at the disco#2. Panic! At The Disco – The Overpass

Definitely didn’t see myself getting back into Panic! At the Disco, but yet here we are. Though I didn’t really enjoy the entire album, it did serve as a great nostalgic blast from the past and send me back to my teenage angst years. I did gravitate towards The Overpass – just can’t get enough of the catchy verses and background off-vocals. Not sure what the hell happens though 2:00 minutes in. Just get’s weird.

fullee love#1. Fullee Love – Deney Terrio

More artists need to do the pseudo-live sounds like Fullee Love does here at the start of Deney Terrio. Just sounds so damn cool and makes me feel like I’m at a live show. It’s not overpowering or anything – instead it compliments the full, groovy sounds.

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.
