#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.
#4. Ruben Dawson – SAYIMGOOD
If you need some energy in your life, Ruben Dawson is here to provide.
#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
#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.
#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.
#5. Justin Faust & Violet Sands – What Do You Feel (Jean Tonique Remix)
soundcloud.com/justinfaustmusic // soundcloud.com/violetsands // soundcloud.com/jeantonique
Been a while since I’ve had a nu-disco type track make it’s way into my playlist. It was all I listened to 5-6 years ago, so the kick of nostalgia from Jean Tonique on this remix is more than welcome.
#4. Krrum – Phase
Turn your speakers/headphones up to max for this bad boy, and get ready to feel your entire body shake. There’s something a bit uneasy/unsettling about this track… makes me really uncomfortable (and yet I cannot stop listening).
#3. Poloshirt – Pinned Upon
Brilliant surf-pop/psych-pop debut from Poloshirt. Love the art style that they have going on as well.
#2. Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – Iguana Bird
Love me some Pete Yorn, and have really enjoyed all the collab work he’s done with Scarlett Johansson. Pete Yorn, much like Boy & Bear, is one of those artists who I can just pick any album from and have it playing in the background… and yet still enjoy every minute of it.
#1. Lauv – Comfortable
While I wasn’t totally into Lauv’s recent album, I have been slightly obsessed with Comfortable. Nice pop times for all.
