Songs of the Week 308: March 14 – March 20

#5. Savi Minds – How I’m Alive

SAVI MINDS | Free Listening on SoundCloud

You know how sometimes, by the sound and style of someone’s music, you can almost guess or tell what they look like? Ok just me? Well, I definitely nailed down Savi Minds look based on how sound. Got that kinda “brilliant, eccentric, with just a touch of hippie” look AND sound going on.

#4. Berhana – California

berhana | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Catchy, easy-listening, head-bopping R&B.

#3. Beharie – What We Started

BEHARIE | BEHARIE | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Been really digging Beharie’s stuff lately, as evidenced by the 2nd track in as many weeks getting a feature. Has this cool, introspective sound to all his music. Like it’s made for those late night walks where it’s just you and the music.

#2. Loudan Feat. Fare – Falling

Breaking up all the slower, deep-thinking tracks this week is Loudan’s dance anthem Falling.

#1. Allday – Void

Allday | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Allday’s one of those polarizing artists where either you are into his voice or you aren’t. Loving his latest drop, which is a bit of a departure from his slightly hip-hop sounds to a straight up radio-pop track.

Songs of the Week 105: March 19 – March 25

brooke bentham#5. Brooke Bentham – Heavy And Ephemeral

A song that really sounds like it’s from a veteran musician rather than what looks like the third track released on a newcomer’s portfolio. Looks like there could be big things coming for Brooke.

baba ali#4. Baba Ali – Otherside

Another track from a (seemingly) newbie in the music scene. Otherside is a grim and catchy blend of RnB and soul-ish pop. Really digging the Eastern European flavour to this one.

william bolton#3. William Bolton – One Way

This guy is a music making machine. If you like quantity, he’s definitely got you covered. I wouldn’t say every track is a smash hit, but there is some real quality in there. One Way is a pre-summer track that sets the mood for what is hopefully a warm and sunny season coming our way.

maximillian#2. Maximillian – Hey Now/ Pink + White (Cover/Mash Up)

Two of my favorite songs by two of my favorite artists. Did I think it’d work when I saw the title? Nope. Does it work. Beautifully. It helps having a captivating voice, but honestly the minimalistic, almost eerie silence that accompanies the vocals is equally powerful.

allday#1. Allday Feat. Japanese Wallpaper – In Motion

This one grew on me big time. At first listen, wasn’t too sure I was digging Allday’s switch from his usual hip hop to emo-esque pop. That said, something has drawn me in and now I find myself playing this one on repeat.
