#5. Channo & Luchii – Vertebrae
Catchy downtempo track to get lost in with a beat that’ll stick with you well after listening.
#4. Tchami – Ain’t That Kind Of Friend
Not sure if that’s a MJ sample or a warp of some vocals or just a natural voice that sounds strikingly similar to a warped MJ hook, but regardless I’m very here for it.
#3. Earl Elliot – Freeway (2006)
A tender, rough around the edges track that has the appeal of a backyard private show from your friend’s band. Feels very intimate.
#2. Harloe – Crush On You
Pure, catchy power pop that’ll bring you back to the Madonna-era 80s.
#1. Chiiild – Eventually
First – I realize this is becoming “Because It’s Monday”… I’ve been late recently. Shit’s been cray. Regardless, I have zero words for this stunner. Just listen and revel in all it’s glory. As mentioned a week or two ago… we’re on a streak here of potential tracks of the year each week.
