Songs of the Week 159: April 15 – April 21

her#5. Her – Shuggie

I’d already featured a bunch of songs from Her’s debut album before it was released, but knowing how awesome they are it was a good bet to see at least one more track come out of it that had yet to be released as a single.

fabich#4. Fabich Feat. James Vickery – Overtime

It’s really be some time since I came across a smashing prog dance track. I don’t think this is it, but it’s close. It’s almost a tease of a dance track… makes you think it’s gonna just blow up at any second into a full on rager but instead settles down into something more controlled.

bravestation#3. Bravestation – Deeper Than Oceans

Vibes that sound like they should be from the late 80s, but still would be right at home in some nice upscale piano bar in 2018.

georgie kieffer#2. Geordie Kieffer – Touch Me Tease Me

Not sure how this track made it all the way up to #2, but here we are. It’s … something. The video is also a must watch. As odd as it is, I can’t get it out of my head. Plus… that dude bum man. So hot.

mad clown san e#1. Mad Clown & San E – Butterfly //

Yep – still obsessed with KPop. In fact, this song actually unseated the new Drake track last week. I was so torn about having two real strong releases in the same week that I instead shifted this one to this week. Again, a fun video can be found should you be so inclined. KPop is brilliant.

Songs of the Week 154: February 25 – March 3

madge#5. Madge – Fight Or Flight Club

Reminds me of a less intense, less “in your face” Crystal Castles.

odie#4. Odie – Trance Dance

Anytime I come across hip-hop that sounds different than the mainstream I get excited. I’m just so sick of everything burning up the airwaves these days – every new hip hop release sounds identical. That said, I’d say this is a stretch to classify Trance Dance as hip hop, but that’s the label Odie gave his track on soundcloud so I’m not gonna challenge it.

mliky chance#3. Milky Chance – Firebird

Catchy folk-rock from the boys.

tycho#2. Portugal. The Man – Live In The Moment (Tycho Sunrise Remix) //

I’m a sucker for anything Portugal. The Man. Live In The Moment however, wasn’t one of my favorite tracks from their recent album. I am loving the spin Tycho put on it for his Sunrise version (in case you are so inclined, there’s another version dubbed the Sunset remix).


#1. Her – Neighborhood

Her are just so damn cool. Their songs are full of swagger, sound unique and totally singable I’m beyond excited for their upcoming debut album. For now, the teaser release of Neighborhood will have to suffice. It’s crazy good.
