Songs of the Week 261: April 5 – April 11

later#5. Later. – Highway 10

Another lyrically catchy vibe from Later.

childish gambino#4. Childish Gambino – Time

Much like Gambino’s previous relesae, I didn’t like this album nearly as much as I wanted to. Also similar is that there still was at least one track that I found crazy good. Oddly enough, I think the best part of this track are Ariana Grande’s lines.

shallou#3. Shallou Feat. Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Silhouettes

Shallou’s really nailed down the “magical world” soundscape thing. All of his tracks transport you to this different land that feels all mystical and fairy-tale like.

tender#2. Tender – Living

Tender continue to shoot up my list of favorite bands in the past few years. They are consistent, both in how often they release and the quality of all their tracks.

syrup#1. Syrup – Something To Wear

I haven’t been able to stop blasting this track since I stumbled upon it after hearing Syrup’s Line. I was hooked from there very opening line, which is always a good sign.

Songs of the Week 188: November 4 – November 10

070shake#5. 070 Shake – Mirros

There’s something almost hypnotizing about Mirrors, off 070 Shake’s 2018 release Glitter.

aiwake#4. Aiwake – Palm City

A common feel I get from music is a sense of panic. Palm City brings that big time.

kiiara#3. Kiiara – L*** Is A Bad Word

Horns! A rare sound in pop music, but one that works here quite nicely.

they#2. They. Feat. Gallant – Rockville Station

Bedroom jams from They. is nothing unusual. Bringing on Gallant for the ride only heats things up. Easily my favorite track of the 6-song album released last week.

tender#1. Tender – Fear of Falling Asleep

I’m in a bit of a music slump. This was a soft week, even by casual standards. That said, the softness is somewhat rescued by Tender (who have been on a tear recently with fantastic releases). This track is equal parts gorgeous and haunting.
