Songs of the Week 283: September 6 – September 12

#5. Kayex – Snowing Gold

https://soundcloud.com/kayexlife

Came across this one a few posts ago but it never really stuck until this week. Now I’m totally diggin’ the Tron-like electronica vibes.


#4. Golden – Hate

Sometimes a pleasant sounding bedroom pop track is all one needs to feel good about things.


#3. Lanks Feat. Lucy Sugerman – I’d Do It All Again

https://soundcloud.com/lanksmusic

Been a while since I’d heard some new Lanks. He’s back with some gorgeous new tracks, this one going vocaless and instead bringing on some haunting vocals from Lucy Sugerman.


#2. Charlie Burg – Lancaster Nights

https://soundcloud.com/bluewaveboi

I’m convinced Charlie Burg is the most underrated artist in the game right now. He’s got a little bit of everything in all his tracks, with some heavy jazz/blues influences complimenting a sound that is that of a seasoned veteran. When I first came upon this track I was convinced it’d be a top track of the week. Something else took over my life this week, but goddamn this track is groovy.


#1. Michi – Escondida

https://soundcloud.com/michiiimichii

Yea. It’s the “doo wops” that got me but geezus how can you not be into that? It’s woven so well into the track, and instead of wearing on you by the end you continue to be excited by each time the next round comes by. Haven’t come across Michi before but I’ll def be watching now.

Songs of the Week 164: May 20 – May 26

arty#5. Arty – Rain

soundcloud.com/arty_music

Arty’s always been one of those acts I really wish I’ve seen. Rain isn’t anywhere near the top of my favorites list from him, but it’s an easy-listening anthem track regardless with a nice progression.


joshua worden#4. Joshua Worden – Tennessee

soundcloud.com/joshuaworden

This one is made for headphones. Probably mentioned it before, but one of my dream jobs is to be the person responsible for picking music in a movie. This track sounds perfect for some kind of reflective drive where the main character is reflecting on some life choices.


lanks#3. Lanks – Horoscopes

soundcloud.com/lanksmusic

Lanks’ music sounds like has a really unique way of sounding catchy. It’s not like a typical pop track you’d come across at Starbucks or on the radio. It’s clever catchy.


aquilo#2. Aquilo – The Road Less Wandered

soundcloud.com/aquilo

Brings me back to Aquilo of old. It’s got that signature sound, and the nostalgic feeling of sadness that came with a lot of Aquilo’s earlier stuff. Big fan of the little Western-sounding breakdown as well.


troye sivian#1. Troye Sivan – Bloom

soundcloud.com/troye-sivan

It’s an overall damn fine pop track. I don’t know much about Troye Sivan, but glad I gave it a random listen when I was perusing the new releases from Spotify a few weeks back. Frankly though, I am sold on the track by virtue of the brilliant verses. So smooth and so catchy.
