Songs of the Week 193: December 9 – December 15

saens#5. Saens – Wind Turns Cold

soundcloud.com/saensmusic

Saens is one of those artists who should be more popular than he is when you have tracks like this.


the 1975#4. The 1975 – I Like America & America Likes Me

soundcloud.com/the1975

Loved The 1975’s album that dropped a few weeks ago. A slew of tracks I’d happily feature, but went with the one which has had the most plays from me since I gave the entire album a spin.


musa#3. Musa – Sabah

soundcloud.com/musa-co

This came out of nowhere, and I still don’t really know anything about him (them?) even after doing my best to dig around. What I do know is that he (they?) make some pretty damn chill hip hop.


b00ty#2. B00ty – Blowing Up My Phone

soundcloud.com/b00tymusic

Still can’t get enough of these guys. Every track is pure fun.


teflon sega#1. Teflon Sega – Satellite

soundcloud.com/teflonsega

Ahhh the mysterious Teflon Sega. Sometimes drops a release a week and I still adore every single release. Only thing that bothers me is the lack of urgency on the Spotify account.

Songs of the Week 192: December 2 – December 8

kaytranada#5. Kaytranada Feat. Shay Lia – Chances

soundcloud.com/kaytranada

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

soundcloud.com/b00tymusic

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

soundcloud.com/loverwtf

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


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

soundcloud.com/coldwarkids

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.
