10. Old School by Urban Cone
This week I’m giving you 10 songs that are amazing, but people haven’t heard of. I’m here to enlighten you. And if you know them all, well… sorry.
- Impossible Germany by Wilco
If you can’t study and listen to classical/music with no vocals, I suggest you check out this song. It’s a mellow and very “feel good” kind of track. The album is from 2007 so it was released 10 years ago!
2. Youth by Glass Animals
Glass Animals are an alternative band with hip-hop, indie, and synth pop influences. They released a new album in 2016 and youth is one of the most popular songs from it. They have an amazing sound and it’s worth your time to take a listen. Also while you’re on it listen to Gooey and Season 2 Episode 3.
3. Never Catch Me by Flying Lotus ft. Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick is my favourite rapper, and when people ask why I make them listen to this song.
4. Electric by Alina Baraz ft. Khalid
I only discovered this song because of my obsession with Khalid. It’s a really sweet, super mellow song.
5. Work Shoes by USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker)
Amazing song, the whole album is amazing to be honest with you, and the fact that they’re Canadian explains why.
6. Right Me Up by State Radio
7. You’re A Wolf by Sea Wolf
Very Mumford and Sons / Bombay Bicycle Club esque.
8. Om igjen igjen by Linni
Don’t know what the songs about but the beat is sick.
9. Eggplant by Train
I know you know Train, but do you know Eggplant off their 1998 album? It’s good.
10. So It Goes by RATKING
Now that 2016 has come to an end we’re counting down the top 10 songs of the year.
10. 7 years by Lukas Graham
Lyrics are deep. Brings tears to peoples eyes, but not mine obviously.
9. Hotline Bling by Drake
Some may argue it was overplayed, but it’s still in the top ten of 2016.
Seriously, when you think back to 2016 20 years from now you’ll think of this song. Or maybe a little Drake ain’t your thang.
8. Famous by Kanye West
Obviously everyones jam. However my personal fave is Fade.
7. Closer by The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey
It’s obvious as to why this is in the top ten. Played on every radio station and every aux cord. This is basically the anthem for 2016.
6. Dang! by Mac Miller ft. Anderson .Paak
My favourite on this list. It’s just so sooo good.
5. Formation by Beyoncé
Every dance crew ever has done it. and if you haven’t, are you really a crew?
4. Love Yourself by Justin Bieber
It’s a banger yo.
3. Starboy by The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk
Such a tune. However, imo y’all need to listen to Rockin’ if you haven’t already because it’s the best song off the album.
2. Bodmon by Ramriddlz
I would just put the whole album on this list but I had to pick one.
1. Panda by Desiigner
Worthy of #1 just because.
Jackson Phillips started out as a drummer, transitioned to song writing, and then slowly his music evolved into what it is today. He claims to be changing his music in a way that suits him and not to fit in with the current trends in the music world. His new releases are definitely proof that this has paid off and its clear that what he is doing is for himself and not for the industry which makes it way more appealing. The style is very guitar-based pop making it agreeable and very hard to dislike as long as that’s your thing.
The Headcase EP Was released on July 17th 2015 and features 5 tracks. Overall the EP has a really mellow and feel good sound. The music is kind of predictable but in a good way that makes it seem familiar and comforting. It’s definitely an easy listen and has this really cool urban indie feel that can put you in a trance.
We Try But We Don’t Fit In is track four on the EP and it’s definitely the most unique sounding track on there. It makes a good addition and adds sound variety.
Headcase is the last track on the EP and really ties everything together. It seems like the track that explains the entire theme for the release and is probably a good choice as an album title considering.
Hard To Read
Hard to Read was released on March 4th of this year. The sound is pretty much the definition of indie pop and while this is the case, it still manages to have a unique sound. The track order flows really well and the songs go together but still manage to stick out and offer something different. The sound is genuine and laid back. It’s a lot similar sounding to Headcase and I personally believe that the two could be put together to make one album.
These EP’s are a must listen and are great for when you need something to chill out to without too much intensity. You’ve definitely heard something from Day Wave somewhere so have a listen and see what’s up.
