#5. Kid Froopy – New You
In Kid Froopy tradition, with (what at least sounds like) altered vocals and saccharine pop, New You is everything you come to know and love.
#4. Henry Green – Stay Here
Henry Green is batting out of his mind right now at something like a .800 clip for songs that I’m absolutely floored by. Almost every single track he has released has graced my playlist, and usually at or near top spot rotation.
#3. Future Jr. – Suburbia Blue
A sleepy verse goes into full “stuck in your head for days” mode when it hits the chorus.
#2. Ric Rufio – Water To Wine
This week is all about pop. Ric Rufio’s Water To Wine sounds like it’s straight out of the 80s. So good.
#1. Future Jr. – Sentimental Trick
These guys again!? You betcha. Catchy as hell again? Of course.
#5. Henry Green – Loose
Henry Green is one of my favorite up and coming musicians right now. His latest EP, Real EP, is a must have. Each song is spectacular, and Loose is the last release from that very EP.
#4. Ruby Empress – Deluca
I remember hearing Deluca months ago and not thinking much of it. Was a pleasant little tune, but it didn’t make my rotation. Fast forward to this past week when I heard the release of their newest track (which may just be coming up further down the list for this week’s best songs), and I’m kind of angry at myself for not giving this one more of a chance. That chorus is disgustingly sweet.
#3. Seth XVI – Hurt You Back
Had a major moment of “is this Boy Hits Car ?!” when first pressing play on Seth XVI’s Hurt You Back. Now, the bands and tracks are nothing alike, but something about the voices in each track give me major nostalgic moments. I’m probably just weird. Oh, also… saxophone alert!!! Sexy sexy sax.
#2. Warhola – Jewels
Was a great week of music, which usually means a track that deserves top spot won’t get it. Such is the case this for Wahola. Almost any other week this is #1. So good.
#1. Ruby Empress – Escapism Deluxe
As I alluded to above, it’s a rare week where we have 2 tracks from the same artist in the top 5. Escapsim Deluxe is the perfect blend of catchy and weird, and a track that I’ve found myself listening to more and more as the week’s passed by. As a cherry on top, I found out that they actually released a few more tracks Friday with the release of their EP Empressionism. Nice times.
