Songs of the Week 176: August 12 – August 18

Litany#5. Litany – Call On Me

soundcloud.com/litanymusic

Litany make really endearing music. Call On Me is  just another painfully cute track from a duo that’s really rising in my books for go to pop songs.


drake-elevator#4. Drake – In My Feelings

soundcloud.com/octobersveryown

Does anything really need to be written about this track? I’m a little late to the party, especially with the Kiki crazy, but I gotta give props where they are due – this track is just too catchy to not make the cut.


evalyn#3. Evalyn – Angels

soundcloud.com/thisisevalyn

Newcomer (at least to me) Evalyn with a pretty solid indie pop track. Some great lyrics make this both singable and catchy.


inner state 81#2. Inner State 81 – Yung Love

soundcloud.com/innerstate81

Such a fantastic sample. There’s enough variation in the track to keep the listener engaged as well.


colordrive#1. Colordrive – Ultraviolet

soundcloud.com/colordrive

Reminds me a bit of Empire of the State, but without Australian pop diva feel. Seems to be the week of pop, and this has all the pieces to have you humming along after the first or second listen.

Songs of the Week 158: April 8 – April 14

whinnie williams#5. Whinnie Williams – Sorry Now

soundcloud.com/whinniewilliams

If this doesn’t stick in your head, you aren’t human. Painfully catchy chorus.


aquilo#4. Aquilo – Seagull

soundcloud.com/aquilo

Aquilo returns this week (or last week) with Seagull – another in their long line of standout pop tracks.


bravestation#3. Bravestation – Gemini

soundcloud.com/bravestation

Came across Bravestation this past week through a release of another song (which just mayyyyy be featured next week). Doing my “listen to every track by a new band ever” routine, Gemini stuck out as probably my favorite of all their tracks. Something real charming about this.


tom misch#2. Tom Misch Feat. Loyle Carner- Water Baby

soundcloud.com/tommisch

There’s something about Tom Misch’s voice and sound that is incredibly calming. While I do love the verse brought by Loyle Carner, I can’t but help to do a couch wiggle to the soft vocals of Tom.


drake#1. Drake – Nice For What

soundcloud.com/octobersveryown

Stupid catchy Drake. I swear to god I don’t know how he does it. He just has this knack for producing music that is irresistible. I will say that this track has worn on me a bit since the first listen (which literally had me thinking it was going to be top track of 2018 after 1 play). Just gotta learn the lyrics of this bad boy so I can sing along while I bust a move.
