Minden - "Sheila"
I recently stumbled across Minden and they're so good but there isn't much online about them. Supposedly, they're a group of 5 band members from Kansas City and they put out some seriously vibe-y dance pop music. "Sheila" is from their 2016 album Sweet, Simple Things and it reminds me of a dreamy 70s disco track. I love it.
Strand Of Oaks - "Rest Of It"
Oh, I am SO happy that Timothy Showater, a.k.a Strand Of Oaks, put out a new album. Hard Love is only nine tracks long but he totally brings energetic, psych/garage rock and "Rest Of It" gives off a little Rolling Stones vibe. You can also hear some Grateful Dead and Velvet Underground influences throughout the Hard Love. It's so good.
Tennis - "I'm Callin"
While I was making a playlist for a little road trip Im taking this weekend, Tennis immediately came to mind because almost every song is the best to drive to. Especially this song. It's has a little 80s Madonna feel to it and it's catchy as hell. It's a care-free pop-rocker song and it makes you feel so good.
Prince - "Let's Go Crazy"
Ever since the Grammys, Prince's music has been available all over streaming sites! Needless to say, I've been taking advantage of this news. Watching Bruno Mars perform this classic at the Grammys made me want to listen to the real thing on repeat. This song is everything Prince represented: sex appeal, eccentricity, and love.
DJ Khaled, Beyonce, and Jay-Z - "Shining"
Do I even have to explain why I've been listening to this track all week? The laid down track is very simple and early 2000's-esque. The song is meant to have Beyonce and Jay-Z's verses shine (pun intended), which it does successfully.
Maggie Rogers - "On + Off"
Okay so this is a song that I've been listening to for months. I thought I would play it enough times to the point that my ears would fall off and I would never be able to listen to Maggie Rogers ever again. The opposite has happened, and I am more obsessed with this track now than when I first started listening to it over a month ago. "On + Off" is a feel good track. It's the type of song to make you feel in love, even if you aren't actually in love at all.
Ryan Adams - "Do You Still Love Me"
Ryan Adams just released his new record, Prisoner, and it's clearly a break up album. I love break up albums. The production on this track is killer and sounds instantaneously classic.
Maggie Rogers - "Better"
I mean, this is one of the two songs we haven't talked about until her EP, Now That The Light is Fading, came out yesterday. Obviously we love it. Is Maggie a bit of a R&B star on this track?
Flume ft. Dave Glass Animals - "Fantastic"
Every Flume song has such a "Flume vibe" to it. I remember when I listened to 2012's self-titled and it took me into a different "Flume world." Even though this song is obviously new and different - a little bit darker - it still brings me back to that feeling.
