Songs of the Week 212: April 21 – April 27

claudia bouvette#5. Claudia Bouvette – Cool It

Different-sounding songs – I dig em. Newcomer Claudia Bouvette delivers in spades.

wtr#4. wtr – I Think I Love It

Such a great use of a now-famous sample (taken from Noah Slee +  Shiloh Dynasty in DGAF… now if they sampled it from somewhere then that’s too far down the sample train for me to ride).

ofenbach#3. Ofenbach Feat. Portugal. The Man – We Can Hide Out

I love Ofenbach. I love Portgual. The Man. Together… well it’s nice times indeed.

martin garrix#2. Martin Garrix Feat. Macklemore & Patrick Stump – Summer Days

I knew the second I saw this lineup that we’d already have our anthem for summer. It’s almost too easy that I don’t want to like it… but goddamn is it ever catchy. Also who doesn’t get at least a little nostalgic anytime Patrick Stump starts belting one out.

kyan#1. Kyan – Like Summer (Colors Version)

I’ve featured this before… but it wasn’t until last week that I discovered the Colors version and it’s well worth a repost. This track is both brilliant and gorgeous. It’s easily moved it’s way into my top 10 songs of the past couple years.

Songs of the Week 211: April 14 – April 20

oscar key sung#5. Oscar Key Sung – Club Mate

Surprised that I haven’t featured an Oscar Key Sung track before. Feels like he’s been in and around my playlist forever now, but maybe just never had that track that really blew me away.

hailey orion#4. Hailey Orion Feat. Malik – Oh Well

A genre-bending track that hits the best of RnB, hip hop and indie pop.

shalom dubas#3. Shalom Dubas – Something Like This

She’s got fantastic flow, and I’m loving the background sax.

joseph lawrence and the garden#2. Joseph Lawrence & The Garden – Eclipse

If you like emotive, impassioned bluesy-soul, this one is for you.

jax jones#1. Europa Feat. Madison Beer – All Day And Night //

Jax Jones & Martin Solveig have become one, forming Europa. Debut single sounds like it came straight out of Eurovision, so the band name is apt. Banger track.
