Songs of the Week 204: February 24 – March 2

dua lipa#5 Dua Lipa – Swan Song

Seems everybody is making tracks for movies these days.

mo brandis#4. Mo Brandis – Smoke & Mirrors

Mo Brandis feels like one of those artists that just got lost in the numbers game. Great voice, catchy tracks, good production. There just seem to be so many artists playing in this hazy RnB/pop space right now.

seb torgus#3. Seb Torgus – Matter of Time

I don’t really know how to classify this one. It’s kinda like it was a song that was made for the 80s but then scrapped, updated and released officially in 2019. It feels stuck between both eras in a weird disco-dance-retro-pop kinda way.

garcons#2. Garcons – Morning

Not sure why, but this track just seems to put me in a good mood.

lo'99#1. Lo’99 Feat. Owl Eyes – Sometimes

Takes a bit to get going, but once the first chorus hits the song gets into it’s groove.

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.
