Songs of the Week 284: September 13 – September 19

#5. Grand Pax – PWR

Having a hard time describing what I love so much about this track. It’s just got that sound. The chorus is so good too.


#4. Curtis Waters Feat. Harm Franklin – Stunnin’

https://soundcloud.com/imcurtiswaters

This song is so much bigger than I realized… soundcloud plays over 1.86m, youtube views over 16m, spotify over 105m plays… I’m actually shocked I didn’t stumble upon this sooner. With some super clever, repeatable lyrics and damn clever wordplay, it’ll be stuck in your head for days.


#3. Edward Knocks – My Energy

This one is kinda cheating, as while the song is great I really love it because of the oddly-sassy video, which I can no longer detach from the track itself.


#2. Kuma Overdose Feat. Tukki – Silhouette

https://soundcloud.com/kumaoverdose

There’s a definitely loop here with not a super deep level of lyrics, but it’s intoxicating nonetheless. There are many mini moments in this song I love, but it’s really just too much effort to get into them all so just listen and enjoy.


#1. Cobra Man – Heatwave

A no contest top track this week. If you hear some Foster The People in this, you have some astute ears, as Innis Innis is involved. Just an incredibly catchy, topic track to wind your summer down.

#5. Kayex – Snowing Gold

Came across this one a few posts ago but it never really stuck until this week. Now I’m totally diggin’ the Tron-like electronica vibes.


#4. Golden – Hate

Sometimes a pleasant sounding bedroom pop track is all one needs to feel good about things.


#3. Lanks Feat. Lucy Sugerman – I’d Do It All Again

https://soundcloud.com/lanksmusic

Been a while since I’d heard some new Lanks. He’s back with some gorgeous new tracks, this one going vocaless and instead bringing on some haunting vocals from Lucy Sugerman.


#2. Charlie Burg – Lancaster Nights

https://soundcloud.com/bluewaveboi

I’m convinced Charlie Burg is the most underrated artist in the game right now. He’s got a little bit of everything in all his tracks, with some heavy jazz/blues influences complimenting a sound that is that of a seasoned veteran. When I first came upon this track I was convinced it’d be a top track of the week. Something else took over my life this week, but goddamn this track is groovy.


#1. Michi – Escondida

https://soundcloud.com/michiiimichii

Yea. It’s the “doo wops” that got me but geezus how can you not be into that? It’s woven so well into the track, and instead of wearing on you by the end you continue to be excited by each time the next round comes by. Haven’t come across Michi before but I’ll def be watching now.
