Songs of the Week 236: October 6 – October 12

tove lo#5. Tove Lo – Mateo

soundcloud.com/tovelo

Everyone’s favorite pop rebel hit us with a new album a couple weeks ago. You should probably listen to it.


jeneaux#4. Jenaux Feat. Harlee – So Alive

soundcloud.com/jenaux

Jenaux continues his crusade to bring disco late 80s disco back (albeit infused with a bit of a 2000s feel). Every track this dude puts out is groovy as hell.


elijah dax#3. Elijah Dax – Tangible

soundcloud.com/delijahx

Hadn’t come across Elijah Dax before during my music blogosophere travels. He’s got an adorable sound, making some pop real feel-good pop music.


farr#2. Farr – Paranoid

soundcloud.com/farr_music

This one lives for the chorus. Super suave.


breathe#1. Breathe. – Haze

soundcloud.com/breathe-team

Nothing this week comes close to the masterpiece that is Haze. The guys at Breathe. keep one-upping themselves and continually blow my mind. I adore every single thing about this track. Sooooo good.

Songs of the Week 235: September 29 – October 5

jonathan bree#5. Jonathan Bree – Waiting On A Moment

soundcloud.com/jonathan-bree

If you like chamber pop, welcome to the world of Jonathan Bree. Every song gives me Stepford Wives vibes and I love it all.


refs#4. Refs – Bones

soundcloud.com/refsmusic

Bones is off Refs recent four-track release and has all those dark, panic-feeling moments in music that I’ve come to really like.


roy woods#3. Roy Woods – Bubbly

soundcloud.com/roywoodsofficial

For whatever reason I just can’t get into the chorus on this one. Otherwise, it’d easily be one of my fave songs of the year, as those verses are hottttt. Roy Woods is one of the few artists in hip hop keeping that genre alive for me in the dark times of mumble rap.


lauv#2. Lauv – Feelings

soundcloud.com/lauvsongs

That hook just slays me. While I’m not always digging the cringey-nice boy love pop songs from Lauv, there are some tracks that I straight up cannot turn off.


catchtwentytwo#1. CatchTwentyTwo – All Because Of Her

soundcloud.com/catchmerighthere

This shit right here is goddamn brilliant. It not only manages to take an iconic riff line and create something standalone with it, but the vocal play is so smooth… especially the first half of the track. If only it was a bit longer 😦
