Songs of the Week 316: May 9 – May 15

#5. Baba Ali – Black Wagon

Baba Ali | Free Listening on SoundCloud

8/10 verses. 4/10 chorus. The opening few lines had me hooked, but the chorus just felt I dunno… too predictable? Despite that, still a quality tune.

#4. Pacific Avenue – Easy Love

Pacific Avenue | Free Listening on SoundCloud

A classic rock song harkening back to another time. A solid track for your summer cruising.

#3. Daddy Nat feat. Abhi The Nomad & Lonely Child – Elders

DADDY NAT | Free Listening on SoundCloud

I’ve had this stuck in my head since first listen. Just has a chorus with lyrics & flow that etch themselves into your brain.

#2. Folamour Feat. S.G. Lewis – Lost In Space

FOLAMOUR | Free Listening on SoundCloud

If there’s a track with S.G. Lewis involved, there’s a good chance it’s making the cut for this blog.

#1. Biyo – Fantasties

Biyo | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Song 2 on our Biyo tour. Just the right mount of quirk to captivate me. Overall just a super cool 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.
