#5. Your Neighbors – Beta
No idea if that’s the right Soundcloud link. Getting lazy in my old age. Regardless, Beta has got some catchy nice grooves to it.
#4. Loud Forest – Costa Rica
I often dig the unusual, and this song is kinda trippy.
#3. Roy Woods – 2 Me
Roy Woods still sounding legit. Far and away my favorite track from Dem Times.
#2. Freaky Pat Feat. Cam Evans – The Time Being
This song is so fucking good, especially the first minute. The flow is genius. BUT WHYYYY. What’s with that transition 2:00 minutes in :(. Just as we’re getting into it, it 180s.
#1. Dornik – God Knows
For some reason Dornik’s music all re-appeared at the time of my streaming list on Soundcloud (despite his new album not having yet dropped, and not to give it away or anything but you best be prepared to see a lot of Dornik coming up because it’s FANTASTIC). I’m so glad it did, as I somehow missed out on God Knows the first pass. Dornik is so criminally underrated. Dude is straight up a disco dance magician.
#5. Jonathan Bree – Waiting On A Moment
If you like chamber pop, welcome to the world of Jonathan Bree. Every song gives me Stepford Wives vibes and I love it all.
#4. Refs – Bones
Bones is off Refs recent four-track release and has all those dark, panic-feeling moments in music that I’ve come to really like.
#3. Roy Woods – Bubbly
For whatever reason I just can’t get into the chorus on this one. Otherwise, it’d easily be one of my fave songs of the year, as those verses are hottttt. Roy Woods is one of the few artists in hip hop keeping that genre alive for me in the dark times of mumble rap.
#2. Lauv – Feelings
That hook just slays me. While I’m not always digging the cringey-nice boy love pop songs from Lauv, there are some tracks that I straight up cannot turn off.
#1. CatchTwentyTwo – All Because Of Her
This shit right here is goddamn brilliant. It not only manages to take an iconic riff line and create something standalone with it, but the vocal play is so smooth… especially the first half of the track. If only it was a bit longer 😦
