Songs of the Week 133: October 1 – October 7

caswell#5. Caswell – Dance Sober

soundcloud.com/caswellofficial

I find this track irresistibly cute, which is an unusual way for me to feel about a song. Guess it helps that it’s also got a chorus which’ll be stuck in your head for days.


faux#4. Faux – Take Back Time

The 90s are mostly known for grimey punk rock, but there was also the Janet Jackson-poppy RnB that ruled the airwaves. This track by relatively unknown Faux makes me think of that with it’s danceable nostalgia.


allan rayman#3. Allan Rayman – Word of Mouth

Feels like it’s been quite a while since we’ve been graced with new Allan Rayman music. Word of Mouth is as Allan Rayman as it gets, with the dinstinct vocals and hints of western/oater notes in the flow. Really digging the guitar.


andrew bayer#2. Andrew Bayer Feat. Alison May – Signs of the Fall

I wouldn’t call prog house one of my favorites genres, but when I come across a track I like it dominates my playlist for the following few months. I find them the most addictive of all genres. Something about the, well, progression.. of the tracks just sucks you in and after the first listen, the predictability of the track works in it’s favor. Doesn’t hurt that a lot of prog house music comes with stunning, catchy vocals.


kill paris#1. Kill Paris Feat. Dotter – Red Lights

Gotta give this until the chorus to shine. Dance party central. And man, can anyone rack up soundcloud plays like Kill Paris? Only been out 18 days and the kid already has 288k+ plays on this bad boy. Impressive stuff.

Songs of the Week 86: November 6 – November 12

allan-rayman#5. Allan Rayman – Much Too Much

soundcloud.com/allanrayman

Allan Rayman has a very distinctive sound, which can be a blessing or a curse. While you can argue that a lot of Allan’s songs sound somewhat similar, the production and beats for a lot of his stand out tracks are gorgeous and catchy. This track no different, which a really cool, “tv drama set in NYC during the early 60s” feel to it.


taka-perry#4. Taka Perry Feat. Jimmy Davis – Fishy

soundcloud.com/taka-perry

This track’s first verse blows me away. It’s clever and catchy. I’m a bit let down after the first drop, but not enough to keep me from hitting repeat.


young-summer#3. Young Summer – Heart In Slo Mo

soundcloud.com/youngsummer

Young Summer is on quite the tear. Every new track she’s released this past year finds it’s way onto my playlist. Heart In Slo Mo is, in my humble opinion, not the strongest of her releases… but that says more about how goddamn amazing her past few tracks were.


warbly-jets#2. Warbly Jets – Alive

soundcloud.com/warblyjets

Catchy power-rock from Warbly Jets with their debut track, Alive. Straight goodness from start to finish here.


sigma#1. Sigma Feat. Birdy – Find Me

soundcloud.com/sigmahq

The song perhaps more famous for who stars in it’s music video (someone from the Netflix show Stranger Things… I don’t know, I haven’t watched it), Find Me is an awesome anthemic progressive house-feeling track from Sigma with lovely vocals from Birdy. I typically only post videos if I cannot find a Soundcloud link, but definitely go give this video a shot as it really gives the song another gear.
