Songs of the Week 217: May 26 – June 1

marina city#5. Marina City – Strawberry

One of the most Prince-sounding songs you’ll ever here (that ain’t Prince).

husky loops#4. Husky Loops – Everyone Is Having Fun But Me

We move from a Prince soundalike to some boys that give me major Arctic Monkeys vibes.

pelicandy#3. Pelicandy – Animals

More retro grooves from the best-named band this week.

nasaya#2. Nasaya Feat. Sara Diamond – Patterns

Sneaky good track from Nasaya with some sneaky good vocals courtesy of Sara Diamond.

waives#1. Waives Feat. Iiola & Butterjack – Threads

Can’t find any info on Waives anywhere. I always have room in my library for more sultry R&B though.

Songs of the Week 216: May 19 – May 25

sachi#5. Sachi – Lips

I’m a sucker for a good falsetto. Sachi delivers impressively in his debut track. Goddamn kids and their talent these days.

emotional oranges#4. Emotional Oranges – Motion

Retro grooves from the oddly-named emotional oranges. Pretty late to the party on this one, but better late than never.

reyna#3. Reyna – Heartbeat

Some good ol’ fashioned power dance pop music.

yoke lore#2. Yoke Lore – Safe & Sound

Loving the slow piano build that drives the chorus.

The "2017 Billboard Music Awards" and ELLE Present Women In Music at YouTube Space LA#1. Jhene Aiko – Triggered (Freestyle)

Not gonna lie – I may have a huge crush on Jhene Aiko. Pretty raw track where you can almost hear the argument happening flowing through the song.
