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 169: June 24 – June 30

jean tonique#5. Justin Faust & Violet Sands – What Do You Feel (Jean Tonique Remix) // //

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.

krrum#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).

poloshirt#3. Poloshirt – Pinned Upon

Brilliant surf-pop/psych-pop debut from Poloshirt. Love the art style that they have going on as well.

pete yorn#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.

lauv#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.
