Songs of the Week 213: April 28 – May 4

blackbear#5. Blackbear – Pink Rolex

soundcloud.com/user-32438116

Blackbear’s a divisive character amongst the RnB and hip-hop crowd. Seems you either hate him or love him. I’m firmly a fence sitter in the battle, but I did enjoy Pink Rolex from his recent album drop.


noah slee#4. Noah Slee Feat. Shiloh Dynasty – DGAF

soundcloud.com/noahslee

Yep. The wtr track last week had me re-visiting DGAF and made me realize I never did give the tack a proper shot. Been addicted ever since. I’m now down a Noah Slee wormhole and all the glory that exists in his musical catalogue.


teflon sega#3. Teflon Sega Feat. Ozzie – Damage

It’s legitimately a challenge to keep up with how much music Teflon Sega releases. While I’m finding a lot of his tracks are starting to sound the same, Damage has got some uniqueness to it. Just wish the dude would start uploading his tracks to Spotify again!!


johnny utah#2. Johnny Utah – Honeypie

Right from the opening few seconds you know that guitar lick will be stuck in your head for days. On repeat for daysssssss.


big data#1. Big Data – Put Me To Work

soundcloud.com/bigdatabigdata

The crew at Big Data have been on a roll lately. Hit after hit after hit. This one really shines in the chorus.

Songs of the Week 195: December 23 – December 29

the 1975#5. The 1975 – I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)

soundcloud.com/the1975

Still bumping the latest 1975 album. I Wanna Die (Sometimes) is one of the most nostalgic-sounding songs I’ve heard in a long time that transports me directly back into the cringey-emo years of high school. Good times.


ldru#4. L D R U Feat. Mammals – Can’t Drive

soundcloud.com/theldru

L D R U has shot up to the top of my “must see” list for shows in 2019 on this track alone. The distortion of that chorus would just melt the insides live.


cassius#3. Cassius Feat. Ryan Tedder – Hey You!

soundcloud.com/cassiusofficial

I’m cheating here. I had this song saved from when the album was released way back in the summer of 2016… but for whatever reason it never really caught on… that is, until it randomly showed up through my Spotfiy shuffle and had me checking on what track was playing. It’s now getting into the heavy rotation it so rightly deserves.


teflon sega#2. Teflon Sega – Oh Yeah

soundcloud.com/teflonsega

Teflon Sega is becoming a weekly feature here. Dude just makes some amazing music that really doesn’t sound like anything else out there.


jax jones#1. Jax Jones Feat. Years & Years – Play

soundcloud.com/jaxjones

Anything featuring Years & Years is good in my books. They catchy, layered vocals of the chorus make it even better.
