Songs of the Week 228: August 11 – August 17

aunty social#5. Aunty Social – Trying

I’m hereby dubbing this week the “week of weirdness”. 3 out of the 5 tracks I’d classify as different from your normal programming. 1 of those 3 is this track from Aunty Social, which even kicks in some sweet ass retro synths halfway through.

narou#4. Narou – Money

I’m in love with the beats and production on this track. I really really hope some underground hip hop artist grabs some samples from this, as the track is just made for sampling. Heck, for all I know this is already sampling from somewhere else I’m just music illiterate. That piano man… mmmm.

garcons#3. Garcons – Froggin

The second of the three “different” tracks… and while it may not sound too unique, you gotta go check the music video out. It’s rad. The boys over at Garcons are putting out some pretty cool music right now.

oliver tree#2. Oliver Tree Feat. Whethan – Do You Feel Me?

The king of weirdness this week. What even is this (besides awesome, amazing and frustratingly catchy)?! This needs a music video, because that haircut needs to be live-action in all it’s glory. But seriously, this song is so so so cool.

cards#1. Cards Feat. TxTHEWAY – Left Behind The Gold

This song felt like cheating. Catchy guitar hooks are an easy win. Honestly though, this one was taking top spot the moment I heard that bit from 0:20 – 0:30. Melts me everytime.

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.
