Songs of the Week 275: July 12 – July 18

#5. Soko – Oh, To Be A Rainbow!

https://soundcloud.com/soko-music

The smokey vocals and blues-cafe sound get me. We have a strong week of tracks this week that are all wildy different, with no better song to start it off than Oh, To Be A Rainbow!.


#4. Narou Feat. Golow – Honest

https://soundcloud.com/naroumusic

Love me some Narou, but holy hell does Golow’s verse sound good. Definitely going to see what else this dude has done because he has a voice made for R&B.


#3. Limon Limon – Frozen Lemonade

https://soundcloud.com/limonlimonmusic

The perfect summer song about… wishing it wasn’t summer anymore?! Get ready to have this stuck in your head all week. I’m a sucker for a great guitar lick.


#2. No Suits – Sue

https://soundcloud.com/nosuits

Did I mention that I am a sucker for a good guitar lick? This may be the higher average quality week of tracks yet, 275 posts in. Love the swagger in this track.


#1. Dominik Fike – Chicken Tenders

https://soundcloud.com/dominicfike

When I started prepping and listening to tracks for this week, I knew I was gonna have Chicken Tenders in the 5. I just didn’t think it was going to be #1… but there is too much fun going on here that I can’t stop listening.

Songs of the Week 274: July 5 – July 11

#5. Will Hyde – Easy For U

https://soundcloud.com/iamwillhyde

Lots of artist debut’s this week, starting off with Will Hyde’s easy for you. Despite the title, it took me until today to realize it was “easy for you” and not “easy, fuck you”. Used to think it was a really aggressively angry song. Nah, I just dumb.


#4. Runoffbroke – Wish You Knew

https://soundcloud.com/runoffbroke

I don’t think I’ve given this track enough listens. It got caught up in a slew of tracks I stumbled upon in a 2 day span. Now that I’m really giving it a proper listen I am starting to think it’s a lot better than I originally realized. Gonna have to check out the rest of RUNOFFBROKE’s stuff.


#3. Charlie Puth – Girlfriend

https://soundcloud.com/charlieputh

I had a lot of trouble rating the top 3. All I think bring something to the table. Charlie Puth’s track is straight up bubblegum pop magic. Don’t even try to act like this won’t be stuck in your head for days. The music video is a gem as well.


#2. 6lack – ATL Freestyle

https://soundcloud.com/6lack

6lack’s got a distinct style, but even if you account for that there’s a lot to like here. The lyrics and wordplay are top notch. Now one of my fave tracks from 6lack’s impressive catalog.


#1. Seph Cove – Falling

NO SOUNDCLOUD UGH

The second of our debut tracks from new artists. I don’t find myself drawn to folksy music much, but when I do find something I like it sticks with me for weeks. This is one hell of a beautiful debut track from a dude who doesn’t even have a Soundcloud artist page yet!
