Songs of the Week 200: January 27 – February 2

unlike pluto#5. Unlike Pluto – Villain Of My Own Story

Been following Unlike Pluto for a couple months now as he’s gone through his Pluto Tapes series, releasing new music weekly. He manages to scratch a real nostalgic emo itch I didn’t know I had.

crystal skies#4. We Are Fury & Crystal Skies Feat. Pauline Herr – Looking For You //

While less dated than my emo itch above, I was real into dubstep & trap a few years ago. Then again, so was half of the new-music world. While the genre has taken a bit of a hit away from mainstream recently, Looking For You is a nice time.

miknna#3. Miknna – Rush

Love Miknna’s sound. Their entire recent release – Escape – was excellent.

agoria#2. Agoria – You’re Not Alone

A track that has reallllly grown on me over the past few weeks. Another track that conveys a real sense of panic.

broods#1. Broods – Falling Apart

Prepare for Brood features for the next few weeks – they just released their latest album this past week and it is unbelievably good. I’m not an album guy (gimme a nice single anyway), but I’m actually shocked at how much I like pretty much every track on Don’t Feed The Pop Monster. On my way to buy tickets for their next show ASAP.

Songs of the Week 199: January 20 – January 26

james blake#5. James Blake – Don’t Miss It

James Blake doing his James Blake things – making unusual music and showing off his crazy range in vocals.

mansionair#4. Mansionair – Shadows

Lovely little pop track from the boys at Mansionair.

shipwrek#3. Ship Wrek Feat. Grace – Make It Last

I may just be hitting up the wrong spots, but it feels like it’s been a really slow past few months for poppin dance tracks. Make It Last temporarily fills that void.

charlie burg2#2. Charlie Burg Feat. Austenyo – Avalanche

Still blasting the new Charlie Burg album a couple weeks after it’s release. Avalanche is another stand out track, with Austenyo’s verse making for some sweet sweet grooves.

broods#1. Broods – Hospitalized

Love me some Broods. They put out quality track after quality track, usually highlighted by a quirky dance verse much like we have here. Good times.
