#5. Local Natives – Megaton Mile

soundcloud.com/local-natives

I’ve never really been on the Local Natives train. No good reason why – they’ve just never seemed to enter my musical world. That said I gave their newest album a listen, and it’s nice time.¬†Megaton Mile is far and away my favorite track.


Mercedes-Benz USA Official Awards Viewing Party at Four Seasons, Beverly Hills, CA#4. Taylor Beau & Lil Anne – Faded

Not too sure what the story is here. Taylor is some sort of celebrity turned pop artist? Or is dating someone famous? I don’t know, I’m too old for this shit. That said gotta admit when a song is catchy and this track has got it going.


khushi#3. Khushi – Freedom Falls

Another one of those tracks that is both super cool and super unique. Feels like it belongs in a movie with an iconic soundtrack like Garden State.


tobi#2. Tobi – 180 / Serenity

This is smoooooth. Crazy chill with the kind of beat that has you subconsciously bobbing your head along without realizing it. Not a huge fan of the backhalf track¬†Serenity, but hey… can’t win em all.


jeremy zucker#1. Jeremy Zucker Feat. Chelsea Cutler – Hello Old Friend

soundcloud.com/jeremyzucker

Bit of a 180 (see what I did there?!?!) from the Tobi track, we delve into emo pop and a song that rekindles that highschool feel of teen angst pop. Not a huge fan of the opening verse, but come 1:00 minute on the song really takes off.
