Songs of the Week 192: December 2 – December 8

kaytranada#5. Kaytranada Feat. Shay Lia – Chances

The man with infinite beats released another couple tracks that are both filthy. Everything Kaytranada touches these days is brilliant.


sam fender#4. Sam Fender – That Sound

soundcloud.com/samfendermusic-1

This guy gives me some major The Boxer Rebellion vibes (which reminds me… I should check up on what those boys are doing these days), which is the highest of compliments.


b00ty#3. B00ty – Good For It

I expect many more releases from these guys to grace the blog’s pages in the next year or two. Groovy, feel-good dance music is right up my alley.


lover#2. Lover – Best Side

Layered vocals is my new jam. Add some strings in and I’m completely hooked.


cold war kids#1. Cold War Kids – Goodnight Tennessee

I’m working through a major music-post backlog. I have enough tracks already queued up for the rest of the month. That said, I had to include Goodnight Tennessee in this week’s recap (despite only hearing it for the first time last week). It’s Cold War Kids at their finest. Despite being released way back in 2011, it got a re-release on the Kids’ album this past week and made me realize that I needed to go back and re-listen to their entire discography to make sure I haven’t missed out on any other great tracks.

Songs of the Week 191: November 25 – December 1

duendita#5. Duendita – Yikes!

Not my usual cup of tea, but I nonetheless find myself continually coming back to Duendtia’s Yikes!.


robert rodriguez#4. Jesse Markin – Treat (Roberto Rodriguez Remix)

Digging the spin Roberto Rodriguez placed on Treat. Been a hot minute since any prog house has caught my ear.


blv#3. BLV Feat. Jay Novus – Sexplanations

soundcloud.com/blvoff

Guilty pleasure track of the week. I expect it’s going to make some serious radio rotations.


final djs#2. Final DJs Feat. Martin Carr – Does It Feel Good

soundcloud.com/finaldjs

Love Final DJs. They are experts at making easy-listening dance music.


alex vargas#1. Alex Vargas – Now That I Think About It

soundcloud.com/alexvargas

It’s been ages since I’ve heard anything from Alex Vargas. Last I remember, he was blowing up the blog world with his version of smokey, blues pop. Thank you Spotfiy for popping his new track into my Discovery feed. It’s lovely.
