#5. Lyves – Tell Me That You Feel It Too
New track from a much blogged about favorite of mine. Frankly, I’m surprised she’s not a bigger deal in the music world yet…
#4. Allan Rayman – Might Get Strange
Wasn’t really into Allan Rayman’s new album, but I do think Might Get Strange is worth some solid airtime. Latin flavors and just catchy enough to have been on repeat all week.
#3. Talladega – Voodoo Baby
With just 5 followers and 500ish plays on Soundcloud, Talladega are true newcomers to the music scene. Gotta say, they’ve got the catchy lyrics thing down. Kind of track that I can totally see making it onto radio.
#2. Suns Up – Stay
Bit of a throwback track to classic rock, Stay is the newest release from another Soundcloud newbie.
#1. Lais – Focus
If you’ve heard Lais before, this track will not surprise you. It’s classic Lais at his best.
#5. Blasko – Japanese Hotel
It’s mostly a bunch of newcomers to the blog this week, starting with Blasko and his new pseudo-dance track Japanese Hotel.
#4. Manila Killa Feat. Mansionair – Wake Up Call
Another one of those tracks that gives instills some panic – plus it features Mansionair, who are always the sign of a good time.
#3. Pomo Feat. Harrison Brome – Intoxicated
These two are definitely not newcomers to the blog. I love almost everything either Pomo or Harrison Brome touch, so it was only natural that this track would be making the cut.
#2. Sufjan Stevens – Lonely Man Of Winter
I will always have room for Sufjan Stevens in my life. He carried me through a lot of my late highschool and early university years. Michigan is one of my all-time favorite albums. While sometimes he’s a bit TOO eccentric for me, there’s always some calming charm in everyone one of his tracks. And yes this is a Christmas track – it’s never too early for Mr. Stevens.
#1. Airplane Man – Brain Damage
A super solid, nothing too fancy pop-rock track from Airplane Man. Find myself passively bobbing along each time time Brain Damage crosses my playlist.
