Songs of the Week 231: September 1 – September 7

tones and i#5. Tones And I – Dance Monkey

soundcloud.com/tonesandi

Fantastic video and fantastically catchy. Love the raspy, unique vocals.


yellow shoots#4. Yellow Shoots – Everything

soundcloud.com/yellowshoots

Back to back weeks of Yellow Shoots, who has been dominating my playlist with his offbeat, eccentric electro jams.


vandelux#3. Vandelux – Know Some

soundcloud.com/vandelux

Deep house club vibes, and a track that is just begging to be remixed to oblivion.


lover#2. Lover – Starving

soundcloud.com/loverwtf

Lover is very quickly becoming one of my favorite up and coming artists, with his unique sound and clever, saccharine sounds making for some perfect loungin-around-the-house music.


unlike pluto#1. Unlike Pluto – Everything About Nothing

soundcloud.com/unlikepluto

Unlike Pluto puts out too much music for me to keep up with (which really says something, as I listen to an absurd amount of music every day). Everything About Nothing has been at or near the top of my rotation for a few weeks now (yes, we are currently working through a backlog).

Songs of the Week 192: December 2 – December 8

kaytranada#5. Kaytranada Feat. Shay Lia – Chances

soundcloud.com/kaytranada

The man with infinite beats released another couple tracks that are both filthy. Everything Kaytranada touches these days is brilliant.


sam fender#4. Sam Fender – That Sound

soundcloud.com/samfendermusic-1

This guy gives me some major The Boxer Rebellion vibes (which reminds me… I should check up on what those boys are doing these days), which is the highest of compliments.


b00ty#3. B00ty – Good For It

soundcloud.com/b00tymusic

I expect many more releases from these guys to grace the blog’s pages in the next year or two. Groovy, feel-good dance music is right up my alley.


lover#2. Lover – Best Side

soundcloud.com/loverwtf

Layered vocals is my new jam. Add some strings in and I’m completely hooked.


cold war kids#1. Cold War Kids – Goodnight Tennessee

soundcloud.com/coldwarkids

I’m working through a major music-post backlog. I have enough tracks already queued up for the rest of the month. That said, I had to include¬†Goodnight Tennessee in this week’s recap (despite only hearing it for the first time last week). It’s Cold War Kids at their finest. Despite being released way back in 2011, it got a re-release on the Kids’ album this past week and made me realize that I needed to go back and re-listen to their entire discography to make sure I haven’t missed out on any other great tracks.
