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

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!

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

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

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

Songs of the Week 193: December 9 – December 15

saens#5. Saens – Wind Turns Cold

soundcloud.com/saensmusic

Saens is one of those artists who should be more popular than he is when you have tracks like this.


the 1975#4. The 1975 – I Like America & America Likes Me

soundcloud.com/the1975

Loved The 1975’s album that dropped a few weeks ago. A slew of tracks I’d happily feature, but went with the one which has had the most plays from me since I gave the entire album a spin.


musa#3. Musa – Sabah

soundcloud.com/musa-co

This came out of nowhere, and I still don’t really know anything about him (them?) even after doing my best to dig around. What I do know is that he (they?) make some pretty damn chill hip hop.


b00ty#2. B00ty – Blowing Up My Phone

soundcloud.com/b00tymusic

Still can’t get enough of these guys. Every track is pure fun.


teflon sega#1. Teflon Sega – Satellite

Ahhh the mysterious Teflon Sega. Sometimes drops a release a week and I still adore every single release. Only thing that bothers me is the lack of urgency on the Spotify account.
