Songs of the Week 266: May 10 – May 16

kid froopy#5. Kid Froopy – The Santa Ana Public Parking Structure Closes at 12AM

This album is really cool. Kid Froopy is doing some dope stuff. I mean how does one even come up with an song title & concept like this? There’s probably an explanation already out there somewhere, but I’m not here to Google stuff for you.

ruben dawson#4. Ruben Dawson – SAYIMGOOD

If you need some energy in your life, Ruben Dawson is here to provide.

pete yorn#3. Pete Yorn – ECT

I went through a major Pete Yorn phase in the early 2000s. musicforthemorningafter was one of my favorite albums for a good long time. Glad to see he’s still making music true to his sound. Dude is really underrated

brandon#2. Brandon – Weep

Brandon’s gonna have some SEO & discovery troubles I believe. I appreciate the simplicity in the name, but man it was hard to find his Soundcloud page. Definitely one to keep an eye on though.

louie blue#1. Louie Blue – Hit It!

One of those tracks that I added to my playlist during the week and didn’t realize how good it was until I was going back thru my tracks for the blog this week. Some super smooth disco pop here.

Songs of the Week 265: May 3 – May 9

thefatrat#5. TheFatRat – Electrified

It’s been some time since I’ve featured any kind of electro/dubstep/trap style tracks. Digging everything about Electrified. Sounds made for some summer festivals (although I guess we’ll have to wait until 2021 for that…)

kid froopy#4. Kid Froopy – Skeleton Key

Couldn’t tell you a single word said during any of the verses, but it doesn’t even matter. A nice sounding song that’ll stick in your head for days.

yuto#3. Yuto. Feat. Julia Lostrom – Tell Me

I have a thing for songs that strip out sound and go with just vocals, then build the sound back in. Yea it’s specific, and yea it’s done well here.

pangeaux - nightfall#2. Pangeaux & Blake D – Nightfall

The other track from Soul Serum’s album drop featuring heavily one of my new faves, Pangeaux. Blake D’s verse is pretty sick too.

kraz#1. Kraz Feat. Eric Krasno – No Sleep

Those notes during the chorus.. are just SO GOOD. I don’t even care about the rest of the song. I literally just wait for that uplifting 6 notes. Major props to one of my favorite podcasts, 31 Thoughts, who featured the instrumental version of this track as their outro and it got me so hard that I went digging to find out if there was a lyrical version. Very happy that there was…
