Songs of the Week 159: April 15 – April 21

her#5. Her – Shuggie

I’d already featured a bunch of songs from Her’s debut album before it was released, but knowing how awesome they are it was a good bet to see at least one more track come out of it that had yet to be released as a single.


fabich#4. Fabich Feat. James Vickery – Overtime

It’s really be some time since I came across a smashing prog dance track. I don’t think this is it, but it’s close. It’s almost a tease of a dance track… makes you think it’s gonna just blow up at any second into a full on rager but instead settles down into something more controlled.


bravestation#3. Bravestation – Deeper Than Oceans

soundcloud.com/bravestation

Vibes that sound like they should be from the late 80s, but still would be right at home in some nice upscale piano bar in 2018.


georgie kieffer#2. Geordie Kieffer – Touch Me Tease Me

soundcloud.com/geordie-kieffer

Not sure how this track made it all the way up to #2, but here we are. It’s … something. The video is also a must watch. As odd as it is, I can’t get it out of my head. Plus… that dude bum man. So hot.


mad clown san e#1. Mad Clown & San E – Butterfly

www.facebook.com/sanethebigboy/ // www.facebook.com/officialmadc/

Yep – still obsessed with KPop. In fact, this song actually unseated the new Drake track last week. I was so torn about having two real strong releases in the same week that I instead shifted this one to this week. Again, a fun video can be found should you be so inclined. KPop is brilliant.

Songs of the Week 158: April 8 – April 14

whinnie williams#5. Whinnie Williams – Sorry Now

If this doesn’t stick in your head, you aren’t human. Painfully catchy chorus.


aquilo#4. Aquilo – Seagull

soundcloud.com/aquilo

Aquilo returns this week (or last week) with Seagull – another in their long line of standout pop tracks.


bravestation#3. Bravestation – Gemini

soundcloud.com/bravestation

Came across Bravestation this past week through a release of another song (which just mayyyyy be featured next week). Doing my “listen to every track by a new band ever” routine, Gemini stuck out as probably my favorite of all their tracks. Something real charming about this.


tom misch#2. Tom Misch Feat. Loyle Carner- Water Baby

soundcloud.com/tommisch

There’s something about Tom Misch’s voice and sound that is incredibly calming. While I do love the verse brought by Loyle Carner, I can’t but help to do a couch wiggle to the soft vocals of Tom.


drake#1. Drake – Nice For What

soundcloud.com/octobersveryown

Stupid catchy Drake. I swear to god I don’t know how he does it. He just has this knack for producing music that is irresistible. I will say that this track has worn on me a bit since the first listen (which literally had me thinking it was going to be top track of 2018 after 1 play). Just gotta learn the lyrics of this bad boy so I can sing along while I bust a move.
