#5. Ben Bohmer Feat. Panama – Weightless

Really strong lineup this week, which is good because it’s been crickets the last few days and for the first time in the 305 or so weeks I’ve been doing this blog, I’m actually concerned about having enough songs to make a post next week. Let’s hope for a big week! That aside, really strong prog trance (?) track here. Feels like it’s made for Tomorrowland or some kinda huge festival, when the sun is setting and everyone who’s been buzzed all day dancing and partying is settling in for a night of chill tunes.
#4. Gallant – Relapse.

The first listen didn’t take for me, but when this track popped back up on one of my discovery rotations, I changed my tune. It’s a legit banger from Gallant. Not sure why I ever doubted it in the first place.
#3. Johnny Ashby – Getting Started

Usually when I’m prepping for the write up, I have in mind most of the songs that’ll make the list that week. That said, I always go back through any discoveries from the past 10-14 days to make sure I didn’t miss anything, and this is one of those tracks I just didn’t even realize I had on my saved list. I heard it, I saved it, but frankly I just haven’t really given it the plays it deserves since. It’s a catchy, gruffy, indie rock track.
#2. LVNDVN – Rainy Days

Usually I’m not too into short tracks (under 2 min). But this one is way too steamy, way to sultry and I actually think is made better by being short and leaving you wanting just a bit more.
#1. Ivy Rose – I’ve Been Watching You
WHAT A GODDAMN TRACK. Holy hell. I am not one who often gets excited but this ranks on the all time top 10 of tracks I’ve come across from an artist I’d never heard of (which is fair here – this is her debut track). I just … everything. Everything is good. This reminds me so much of when I came across Aces and her track Find Me Out, and just how excited I was about a track from this new comer that oozed potential with a totally unique sound. It’s that. All over again. I’m so here for it.
