Songs of the Week 167: June 10 – June 16

zanski#5. Zanski – Oceans

soundcloud.com/zanski

Another day, another bedroom banger from Zanski.


opia#4. Opia – Four Winds

soundcloud.com/opia-official

Four Winds almost sounds like it was artificially sped up. The pace is pretty intense – everything about this track gives me a slight sense of panic.


mesita#3. Mesita – No Reply

I honestly could probably fill two weeks worth of posts just on Mesita alone. Love this dude.


snow patrol#2. Snow Patrol – Life On Earth

soundcloud.com/snowpatrol

When I saw the new Snow Patrol album pop up, I had a “what year is it?!?!” kind of moment. Had no idea they were still making music… and honestly, the album aint half bad. For almost anyone born in the 80s, Snow Patrol was a major force in the teen years.


tyga#1. Tyga Feat. Offset – Taste

Doing a complete 180 here. The flow and beat on Tyga’s Taste is too catchy to not have at #1 this week. I can’t stop playing it…

Songs of the Week 166: June 3 – June 9

jungle#5. Jungle – House In LA

soundcloud.com/jungle-8

Hazy summer vibes carry us into season with Jungle’s (relatively) recent release, House In LA.


chromeo#4. Chromeo – Bad Decision

soundcloud.com/chromeo

This song would be so much higher on my list, but I just can’t seem to get into the chorus. Those verses tho… ultimate Chromeo catchiness. The chorus though just feels too “radio”.


ty dolla sign#3. Ty Dolla $ign Feat. A$AP Rocky – Dawsin’s Breek (Remix)

soundcloud.com/tydollasign

For whatever reason, I’ve been obsessed with this song in for the past few weeks. It’s by no means new, and I definitely had a few rounds at it when it was first released. It didn’t do much for me at first… but now. Now it’s just stuck in my head forever.


pnau#2. Pnau – Changa

soundcloud.com/pnau

Another “old” track that has captured my attention. Changa feels different than most dance tracks you hear – perhaps it’s the tribal influence. Perhaps it’s just cause it’s Pnau – where every song is kinda weird but still so, so danceable.


mesita#1. Mesita – Yr Eyes

soundcloud.com/mesitamusic

Mesita is quickly becoming my favorite musician. I was super into him a few years ago when he released the Small Table EP, but sorta stopped following him. Luckily, Yr Eyes went pretty big and it surfaced in my daily music search, re-introducing me to Mesita and all his glory. There are so many good tracks in every one of his releases – if you at all dig the sound here, I’d highly recommend giving his catalogue a go. Bit of a Radiohead thing going on.
