Songs of the Week 207: March 17 – March 23

eyes on the shore 2#5. Eyes On The Shore – Labyrinth

More easy-listening pop rock from Eyes On The Shore.

the drums#4. The Drums – 626 Bedford Avenue

Impossible not to have this stuck in your head after listening to even just the first 30 seconds.

blue detiger#3. Blu DeTiger – Mad Love

Sometimes it’s the chorus. Sometimes it’s the opening line. Mad Love has got me with the hook.

pages#2. Dwilly Feat. Emilia Ali – ADD (Pages Remix)

If I could find any links to credit Pages for this killer remix, I would. But alas, it’s impossible to track her (him? them?) down. Even their Spotify page is barren. Brilliance on this ADD spin though…

foals#1. Foals – Sunday

Already featured Exits, and now it’s time for Sunday, another fantastic cut from Foal’s recently released album.

Songs of the Week 201: February 3 – February 9

garcons2#5. Garcons – Pink Dress

The music gods have bestowed upon us 5 weeks worth of tracks, meaning that I’ll be playing catch-up for a good while here. Garcons are one of the acts I’ve been intro’d to in the past month and make some pretty sweet rnb-inspired pop.

foals#4. Foals – Exits

Exits has the type of sound that will remain stuck in your head for weeks after listening.

broods#3. Broods – Dust

Part of the “blame” for my music backlog lands squarely on the shoulders of Broods. Don’t think I’ve been into an album this much since At The Drive In’s Relationship of Command (yeah… it’s been a while).

narou#2. Narou Feat. Hannah Jenkins – Prophecy

With each passing day I find myself loving Prophecy more and more. Something about the hazy vocals of Hannah Jenkins have me.

aldous harding#1. Aldous Harding – Blend

UGH. Blend is a track (from an artist I did not know at the time) that made its way into my ears last year sometime. However, it wasn’t on Soundcloud so I had only saved it in Spotify. Problem here is that I am only a very recent adopter of Spotify as my main source of music. I completely forgot about the track until it came up on my Spotify shuffle playlist a few weeks ago. I’m so thankful it did (my shuffle playlist is now around 1,200 tracks.. so the chances of it popping up randomly wasn’t too high). It’s brilliant. I really have a thing for artists who have the ear and ability to sing a-typical patterns and get themselves out of the standard schemes that 99% of songs use. Another early contender for (my) song of the year in 2019.
