Nirvana - "Heart-Shaped Box"
I go through Kurt Cobain phases every once in awhile. Since Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck was released, I'll have nights where I watch the documentary and then end up getting nostalgic and listening to Nirvana for the whole week. So that's what I did and this song is one of my favorites.
Bishop Briggs - "Wild Horses (Acoustic)"
There's something about this acoustic version of "Wild Horses" - damn. It's stripped down and raw and Bishop Briggs' voice is on powerful display. I'm diggin' the xylophone in the chorus too.
TOKiMONSTA, Anderson .Paak & KRNE - "Put It Down (Tensei Remix)"
This remix is smooth, funky and the intro of this song makes me think of Snoop Dogg playing Huggy Bear in Starky & Hutch. It totally has a 70s vibe with the heavy bass chords, fluttery keys and triumphant horns. TOKiMONSTA and Anderson .Paak need to collaborate more often.
Spiritualized - "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space"
I recently was turned on to this track by a friend. Spiritualized is an English Space Rock band from the 1990's and this song is absolute bliss. "Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating In Space" is essentially a modern reimagination of Johann Pachelbel's famous "Canon in D." It's a total baroque banger.
Dan Layus - "Driveway"
This song has been on repeat for a while because he's on his way to New York and I can't wait. Dan Layus is known best for being the lead singer of heartland rock group Augustana, who had the uber-hit-song "Boston" in 2006. His solo career is taking off because songs like "Driveway" call back to alt-country ballads of the 1970's in the best way possible.
Yung Lean ft. Bladee - "Hennesey and Sailor Moon"
Yung lean dropped his most recent album Frost God in mid-December and it seems the Swedish internet rap sensation is still sad as ever. "Hennessy and Sailor Moon" features his signature warm synth sound and lyrics like "when I go to sleep all I ever see is you / I can be your savior, everything that we've been through." The music video is also a must watch as Leandoer looks out over an empty disco ballroom.
Great Good Fine OK - "Everything To Me"
Great Good Fine OK just dropped their new EP today, III and every single song is such an uplifting experience. The percussive, synth-y instrumentation and production are killer. I love this track in particular because I mean, who doesn't love being in love?
David Bowie - "It's No Game (Part 2)"
This is one of my favorite Bowie songs of all time, off of Scary Monsters. I listen to it at least once a month, but this week I've been turning it on the daily. The guitars, the chorus, the change in the bridge... it's one of those songs that just makes my heart clench up with frustration because I love it so much. To be insulted by these fascists is so degrading! Well said, Bowie.
The xx - "Say Something Loving"
Another song I haven't stopped listening to since it came out. Romy and Oliver's voices are getting better and better.
