#5. Navvi – Human Highlight Reel
There’s something very calming about the atmospheric Human Highlight Reel. That is, until the panic-inducing guitar chords start ripping near the end…
#4. Curren$y – 67 Turbo Jet
Curren$y is one of my all-time fav hip hop artists. While this track ain’t new, it recently got a re-release (along with a few other classics), giving me a good excuse to go back and re-visit the chilled-out weed rap king.
#3. Bob Moses – Back Down
New album by Bob Moses strikes me as very similar to their previous record. A catalog of tracks that are brilliant and perfect as background music to groove to. Nothing really sticks out and grabs my attention, but I find myself bobbing along to almost every single track.
#2. Khalid – Better
While I’m very (VERY) slowly getting sick of how much this dude gets played anywhere I go, I can’t help but acknowledge how damn good all his tracks are.
#1. Akine – Money In Your Mouth
By far the catchiest of the tracks shared this week. Self-described by Akine as anti-pop, I can totally see this tracking making it’s way into an H&M or Starbucks in the very near future.
#5. Parcels – Lightenup
Soft sunshine pop with a guity lick that will keep you hooked throughout. Signature Parcels.
#4. Tailor – After
This one was a slow burn, but I eventually came around. It has a charming sound and really comes into it’s own halfway through the track.
#3. Diice – Chemical
This week has been really hard to rank. Chemical in particular is one that I feel like I’ll regret not making #1 after all is said and done. It’s ridiculously catchy and has a great chorus.
#2. Midnight – Archon Reprise
I’ve been fascinated with the artist Midnight, going all the way back to when it was simply mdnt. Archon Reprise is another addition to a strong lineup of tracks that makes you really stop and listen.
#1. Emmit Fenn Feat. Drew Love – Without You
The winner, by a hair. Something about the edgy, faux-hip hop sound really hits me. Been digging a lot of what Emmit Fenn’s been involved in recently.
