Songs of the Week 291: November 1 – November 7

#5. Mouth Culture – Ihatesadsongs

Some emo-tinged rock starts this week, courtesy of Mouth Culture, who apparently hate sad songs.

#4. Kid Froopy – Middle Sea (Ambien Mix)

Despite dropping his album Silver Silver just six months ago (which was heavily featured in a few weeks of top fives here), Kid Froopy wasn’t done and released ANOTHER album just a week or two ago, of which gives us this gorgeous track.

#3. Du0 – Cinematic Love

Loves of familiar faces this week. Du0 we chatted on last week, but it was actually Cinematic Love that was my first taste of Du0.

#2. Tobi – Conquest

Might have said this in a previous post about Tobi, but he really feels like the type of artist who is about to explode and become huge. Such a cool sound.

#1. Baird – Bite

Super catchy stuff from Baird, dropping a track that feels so at home in a little hipster/indie coffee shop in some really cool, culture-heavy part of town that all your friends in-the-know always tell you about but you’ve yet to visit because it’s too far away for just a simple cup of coffee.

Songs of the Week 290: October 25 – October 31

#5. St. Francis Hotel – You’d Gotta Be Alive

Kinda a weird week this one. Maybe it’s the spooky factor. There isn’t really a standout track, but all are above average quality for a weekly set I’d say. We start off with another track from the lads over at St. Francis Hotel.

#4. Lana Del Rey – Let Me Love You Like A Woman

Another Lana song that has me thinking “boy, this is the most Lana Del Rey track ever”. Signature sound. Signature topic. And if you watch the music video… signature music video.

#3. Washed Out – Too Late

Used to love me some Washed Out way back in the day. Gave his recent release a listen and been digging Too Late… specifically the breakdown into the chorus. Beautiful and oddly haunting. Song kinda gives me creepy chills.

#2. Aiwake Feat. Saen. – Faded Patterns

Aiwake is starting to really develop a sound that I’m totally here for. This really sad, brooding sound that kinda gives off the sense of hopelessness. So sick.

#1. Du0 – It’s Ok

I’m a little late on this one, which came out over a year ago. Better late than never though! Killer chorus.
