Songs of the Week 103: March 5 – March 11

miami horror#5. Miami Horror – Leila

Miami Horror are pure fun. All their songs are light, breezy and full of danceable rhythms. Their latest, Leila, is no different.


Adam-Jensen#4. Adam Jensen – Tombstone

Another rocking folk song from Adam Jensen. Another guy in my list of artists who only know how to create awesome singles. I’ve been really impressed so far with pretty much everything he’s put out.


tracy irve#3. Tracy Irve – Keep Me Close

Gosh it seems like just yeterday I stumlbed upon Tracy Irve’s single Naked (which at the time was actually titled See You Naked). Welp, that was actually almost two years ago. Everything that made me love Naked is back in their newest single Keep Me Close… from the subtly catchy beat to the vocals that have a way of making the song feel complete.


daniel feels#2. Daniel Feels – Vultures

All the songs so far this week feel somewhat similar – brooding themes and catchy vocals. Daniel Feels’ Vultures was the best of that bunch, and a song that I’ve come to like the more I play it.


elephante#1. Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You (Elephante Remix)

soundcloud.com/edsheeran // soundcloud.com/iamtheelephante

I know I know I know. ANOTHER goddamn Shape Of You remix. The song has only been out a few months know and it may be the most remixed song since Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know. That said, give this one a chance. Elephante adds some nice bounce and creates an almost anthemic dance song out of Ed Sheeran’s unfairly catchy lyrics.

Songs of the Week 9: May 10 – May 16

Poema

#5. Poema – Go Away

soundcloud.com/poemamusic

Are you ready for your catchy song of summer? Cause this very well may be it. Airy, breezy vocals compliment a slow, gentle rhythm. I always associate songs to events or actions, and this one has garden party written all over it.


of verona

#4. Of Verona – In The Places Between

soundcloud.com/ofverona

I adored Of Verona’s Dark In My Imagination. Now they have released a much darker sounding In The Places Between… which kind of sounds like it’s always building to something that just never happens. And you know what, I love it for just that. It leaves me wanting, but wanting in a good way.


Flofilz

#3. D’Angelo – Left & Right (FloFilz Remix)

soundcloud.com/dangelomusicofficial // soundcloud.com/flofills

If I was blessed enough with a musical touch, this is exactly the sound I would strive to create. Everything from the beat to the vocals is exactly what I love. Touch of soul, touch of hip-hop chilled out goodness. If we were in the 90s right now and someone asked me to define the slang use of the word “cool”, I’d send em this.


tracy irve

#2. Tracy Irve – See You Naked

soundcloud.com/tracy-irve

Another song where the chorus steals the show. It’s almost creepy. Just one of the two songs released by Tracy Irve so far, and their batting at a pretty good clip right now. With this sound, they strike me as a group who’d put on an absolutely killer live show.


RALPH

#1. RALPH – Trouble

soundcloud.com/songsbyralph

The crutch of enjoying new music and new bands so much is that they often have very little material. I NEED MORE, RALPH. One song just isn’t enough. Especially when it’s this good. I mean, it took me a good 45 minutes to write that little blurb because every time I play this song I start full on grooving… and as we all know it’s very hard to type and groove simultaneously.
