Songs of the Week 197: January 6 – January 12

jerry folk#5. Jerry Folk – Joey

Some super slick beats & production for Jerry Folk, giving a twist to Joey Bada$$’s Land of the Free.


dd walker#4. DD Walker – Psychic Twin

DD Walker channeling his inner Phil Collins here on Psychic Twin.



the dream#3. The-Dream – Runaway Sex

soundcloud.com/the-dream

Another one of my guilty pleasures. The-Dream released a mammoth triple-mix tape recently. Most of it was “meh” for me, but Runaway Sex caught my attention.


savi minds#2. Savi Minds – Lazy

soundcloud.com/saviminds

This track’s opening minute is straight up amazing. Everything down to the subtle laughing in the background is perfect.


young & sick#1. Young & Sick – Bitter End

soundcloud.com/youngandsick

Young & Sick is back with another trippy dance pop track. And once again, it’s delicious.

Songs of the Week 179: September 2 – September 8

Processed with VSCO with q5 preset#5. Thenwhen – Love Me Later

soundcloud.com/thenwhenofficial

This has got some major promise. Love the sound, and for a debut track there’s some good pieces. Excited to see what’s coming up from this new duo.


gallant#4. Gallant – Haha No One Can Hear You!

soundcloud.com/gallant

Feel like it’s been ages since Gallant has graced these pages. It hasn’t been because lack of content – Gallant’s been releasing regularly over the past year or so – just there hasn’t been anything that’s really caught my ear until Haha No One Can Hear You!.


no rome#3. No Rome Feat. The 1975 – Narcissist

soundcloud.com/norome

Sugar pop. Then again, when The 1975 is featured on a track should we really expect anything else? Love the production and bouncing background vocal sample.


dom ford#2. Dom Ford Feat. Lexi Shanley – Whatever I Want

soundcloud.com/wearedomford

This has been stuck in my head for the past week or two. Lexi Shanley’s vocals are stupid catchy. It’s a pretty gentle track and has that “made for radio” feel.


jerry folk#1. Jerry Folk – Charlotte

soundcloud.com/jerryfolkmusic

Goddman man. I don’t know what it is about Jerry Folk’s music, but it just hits me. It’s weird, yet catchy. It makes me want to dance, despite not really being “dancy”. That first vocal loop is gorgeous.
