Songs of the Week 135: October 15 – October 21

tiber#5. Tiber Feat. Fantastic Fantastic – All I Need

Chill, lounge-esque music from Tiber & Fantastic Fantastic.

#4. Mikky Ekko – Blood On The Surface

Mikky been releasing so much music recently that I can’t even keep up with my weekly schedule. I’ve always been a bit hit and miss with his stuff, but this one is definitely a hit.

#3. Biyo – Fantasies

I always get Baio (of Vampire Weekend fame) and Biyo mixed up. Not musically or stylistically… just straight up having similar monikers does it for me.

#2. Louis Mattrs – Don’t Like Dancing

Another track that on any normal week would easily be #1, but alas it ran into a new juggernaut. That said, Louis Mattrs’ latest album is brilliant, and Don’t Like Dancing is my personal fav. Got a bit of JT in his prime feel to it. Louis really knows how to write some catchy hooks.

Miles From Kinshasa – Ivry

It’s tough to keep track of all the music in the world. Case in point, Miles From Kinshasa has been around for a good few years and I only just came across his stuff due to his recently released nine-track album. He has officially blown my mind. His style and sound is super cool. Ivry is my top track, and it’s actually one of his oldest. So pumped for any future Miles From Kinshasa releases… as he’s easily one of my favorite new artists. P.S. Miles From Kinshasa is such a great name for a band/musician.

Songs of the Week 37: November 22 – November 28

kilian and jo#5. Kilian & Jo Feat. Conrad Sewell – Little Love

Owners of the coolest header image I think I’ve used for any blog post, Kilian & Jo’s debut single is a uplifting indie pop song with some catchy warped vocals that will remain stuck with you well after you first listen.

prep#4. Snakeships Feat. Tinashe & Chance the Rapper – All My Friends (PREP Remix) //

Seems to be me that Snakeships is remixed more than most artists. This one, by PREP, takes an already summer-ready track and adds some more summer. I’m not the biggest fan of Chance, but Tinashe sounds fantastic as usual.

louis mattrs#3. Louis Mattrs Feat. LK Faith – Messed Up

Wouldn’t be a weekly top 5 list without a good ol’ bedroom jam. Loving LK Faith’s sultry vocals and the line “So I… stay up late” is perpetually stuck in my head.

sunbathers#2. Sunbathers – Intimacy

Totally cheating this week. I actually considered this song for last week’s list, but decided it just couldn’t make the cut and beat out anyone else. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Intimacy and the nostalgic feeling it gives me of 1990s angsty teen rock. Sometimes songs just need a little marinating.

hoodie allen#1. Hoodie Allen Feat. Blackbear and KYLE – Champagne and Pools

As with every Hoodie Allen song I have posted, I feel dirty. They all feel like guilty pleasure songs. I cannot, however, pretend that this chorus hasn’t been stuck in my head all week. Or that I haven’t been walking to work singing this for the entire way (it’s only a 5 minute walk). I am a huge fan of KYLE, and while I don’t know much about Blackbear I believe this is the second or third time he’s been featured in a song in one of my top 5 lists.
