#5. Blu DeTiger – Mad Love (The Knocks Remix)

Already a revisit of Mad Love, courtesy of The Knocks. I actually don’t even really like this cut that much EXCEPT the hook before chorus. Ugh. It’s addictive.
#4. LPX – Falling To Fall
LPX is one of those artists who puts out quality track after quality track. I also just learned she’s half of MS MR, so that’s a fun learn (knew her voice sounded familiar from somewhere…)
#3. Gena Rose Bruce – The Way You Make Love
Always refreshing to hear a new artist with a style that’s different. The smokey vocals of Gena Bruce to start of the track had me hooked immediately.
#2. Harrison Brome – No More Love Songs
Don’t be misled by the title – this is a total bedroom jam.
#1. Grimes – Pretty Dark (Demo)
Grimes is one of those artists that is definitely not for everyone. I didn’t get it (and frankly I still don’t really understand what’s going on), but there’s something in Pretty Dark that has taken over my soul. I actually believe that’s her intention. Mind control through music.
#5. Madison Paris Feat. Bobii Lewis – Triple
With each passing year I can feel my age in the new sounds that are making waves in the music world. Songs that speak to the university age, like Madison Paris’ Triple. Even the idea of a triple makes me worried for how I’ll feel the next day. Ah, the wonders of aging. Oh yea, killer track tho.
#4. Flor – Slow Motion
Flor are another one of my favs that are incredibly consistent with quality releases. Going to keep my eyes peeled for the next time they’re in town, as I can imagine their shows are a blast.
#3. Two Door Cinema Club – Talk
TDCC are like the mature version of Flor. Been around longer, had some time to become a bit more established, but play the same sort of up tempo, fun, dance-party type rock. I’ve been lucky enough to catch TDCC once live and it still ranks amongst the best shows I’ve ever been to. Can’t wait for their new album (at least I assume they have a new album coming seeing as Talk is a fresh single).
#2. Logic – Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Had my spin with Logic a couple years ago during his Young Sinatra days. Caught this out of nowhere and so glad I did. Such a smart, catchy and skilled hip hop track.
#1. Jungle – Casio
I’m still on a high from the Jungle show I went to three or four weeks ago now. It was easily in the top 3 shows I’ve ever been to… and definitely has moments where I think it was the best. I was always a huge fan, but seeing them live had me “re-discovering” so many tracks that I then fell in love with all over again. Casio is one that I really should have featured already. With each month I feel like the Jungle crew are gaining steam and recognition. Wouldn’t be shocked to see them completely blow up in the next year. For Ever is a masterpiece of an album.
