Songs of the Week 294: November 22 – November 28

#5. New West – Balenciaga

New West | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Easy listening pop-rock jams. The easiest of listening really.

#4. Roman Rogue – Playing With Fire

Roman Rouge | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Been a hot second since we had a new Weeknd-esque RnB banger. Glad to see we continue to see artists enter that kinda sound, as old Weeknd sound is the best sound.

#3. The Palms – Hollywood High

The Palms | Free Listening on SoundCloud

The Palm’s Charlie is a great record. If you dig this track, definitely check out that entire package.

#2. Jacknife Lee Feat. Bibi Bourelly & Barny Fletcher

Bibi Bourelly | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Seems Jacknife Lee doesn’t believe in Soundcloud. Nevertheless, I do think it’s Bibi’s vocals that steal the show. While the song has started to wear on me a bit, it’s all I played for a good week and I can’t help but admire how catchy Bibi’s verses are.

#1. The Paper Kites Feat. Julia Stone – Without Your Love

The Paper Kites | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Love the Paper Kites, and boy it’s been a while since I heard Julia Stone’s vocals but I was very into Angus & Julia Stone back in highschool. There’s something subtle about the way that The Paper Kites write music that I’m quite drawn to. It might be the slow growth of sounds as the track goes… or maybe the calming sense you get listening. Whatever it is, it’s a nice time.

Songs of the Week 293: November 15 – November 21

#5. Jay Lewn – 6 Figure Flow

Jay Lewn | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Ugh WordPress doing things again and now it’s beyond me how to get a Soundcloud link embed in here (I think it’s actually not that hard but I’m stubborn and hate change so I prefer to just rant instead)… so Spotify it is! Smooth stuff from Jay Lewn.

#4. Felivand – Gone

FELIVAND | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Came across this track a few weeks ago but it wasn’t until it came up randomly on my shuffle did I kinda stop and think “whoa, what song is this?”. Definitely a different appreciation level on the second time around.

#3. Ludic – Terrified

Ludic | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Track makes the cut purely because it has segments which I find myself humming well after a listen, even if I admittedly am not crazy into the track. But when it’s got that kind of stickiness, they be doing something right.

#2. Vlush – Mello

vlush | Free Listening on SoundCloud

My fave discovery of last year (and maybe one of my fave discoveries ever) finally released some new music since Who 250. Same catchy, baseman hip hop pop sound.

#1. Kevyn Colt – Benz | I Know (Gashi Remix)

KELVYN COLT | Free Listening on SoundCloud // GASHI | GASHi | Free Listening on SoundCloud

It really feels a lot longer than 15 days, but that’s apparently when I first came across both the remix and the original of Benz | I know. I’m down the original… it’s legit. But Gashi’s verse on the remix version is so sick.
