Songs of the Week 214: May 5 – May 11

local natives

#5. Local Natives – Megaton Mile

I’ve never really been on the Local Natives train. No good reason why – they’ve just never seemed to enter my musical world. That said I gave their newest album a listen, and it’s nice time. Megaton Mile is far and away my favorite track.

Mercedes-Benz USA Official Awards Viewing Party at Four Seasons, Beverly Hills, CA#4. Taylor Beau & Lil Anne – Faded

Not too sure what the story is here. Taylor is some sort of celebrity turned pop artist? Or is dating someone famous? I don’t know, I’m too old for this shit. That said gotta admit when a song is catchy and this track has got it going.

khushi#3. Khushi – Freedom Falls

Another one of those tracks that is both super cool and super unique. Feels like it belongs in a movie with an iconic soundtrack like Garden State.

tobi#2. Tobi – 180 / Serenity

This is smoooooth. Crazy chill with the kind of beat that has you subconsciously bobbing your head along without realizing it. Not a huge fan of the backhalf track Serenity, but hey… can’t win em all.

jeremy zucker#1. Jeremy Zucker Feat. Chelsea Cutler – Hello Old Friend

Bit of a 180 (see what I did there?!?!) from the Tobi track, we delve into emo pop and a song that rekindles that highschool feel of teen angst pop. Not a huge fan of the opening verse, but come 1:00 minute on the song really takes off.

Songs of the Week 213: April 28 – May 4

blackbear#5. Blackbear – Pink Rolex

Blackbear’s a divisive character amongst the RnB and hip-hop crowd. Seems you either hate him or love him. I’m firmly a fence sitter in the battle, but I did enjoy Pink Rolex from his recent album drop.

noah slee#4. Noah Slee Feat. Shiloh Dynasty – DGAF

Yep. The wtr track last week had me re-visiting DGAF and made me realize I never did give the tack a proper shot. Been addicted ever since. I’m now down a Noah Slee wormhole and all the glory that exists in his musical catalogue.

teflon sega#3. Teflon Sega Feat. Ozzie – Damage

It’s legitimately a challenge to keep up with how much music Teflon Sega releases. While I’m finding a lot of his tracks are starting to sound the same, Damage has got some uniqueness to it. Just wish the dude would start uploading his tracks to Spotify again!!

johnny utah#2. Johnny Utah – Honeypie

Right from the opening few seconds you know that guitar lick will be stuck in your head for days. On repeat for daysssssss.

big data#1. Big Data – Put Me To Work

The crew at Big Data have been on a roll lately. Hit after hit after hit. This one really shines in the chorus.
