SOTW #22

Now, we’re going to go back to an oldie song. Well, not that old, somewhere in the 2010’s. I remember one summer I was really into two songs of  Foster The People’s songs in their album Supermodel.

I loved playing this song on the ukulele.

Goats in Trees

Another great one of theirs is:

Best Friend

Just hearing these songs reminds me of old memories and a time where music really helped me out,

Now I have two others songs to mention. This one is a new artist favorite in mind:

Really Something by Hector Gachan

And this next one is a favorite in general. I love The Garden twins.

Soaring by Puzzle, twin Fletcher’s project aside from The Garden

****And bonus shout out song to his new album that was released this year.****

I hope you enjoy these selections!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

SOTW #15

GOOOOOOD Afternoon!

For this weeks SOTW here is a little taste of the artist CUCO. Who is an 18 year old Chicano artist. I may have mention about on of his songs a long time ago. The one I a currently listening to is

Lover Is A Day

There is other songs but this one is always on my mind.

Last night my boyfriend told me that CUCO is coming to Austin, Texas in October. And of course…I want to go!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe week, my prayers are out to my fellow Texans during Hurricane Harvey.

If you have any music recommendations PLEASE let me know!

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

SOTW #12

Hey it has been a while since I have done one of these but I have been really into this this song lately and I can’t stop listening to it.

Lately I’ve been into Tyler The Creator and he has recently released some new songs and singles. These are ones that I have enjoyed

Mr.Lonely/ 911

and also

Boredom

I really enjoy his music, its something different. It is actually something that I’ve been looking for, to listen too. It’s just the right amount of rap and music together.

Enjoy

Give it a listen, Give music a chance.

Day Wave Album Review: The Days We Had

Lately it has been tricky for me to listen to anything else other than Mac Demarco’s lasted album This Old Dog. I know I do mention it a lot in these past few blog posts but honestly I really enjoy the music he makes and has became one of my most favorite artists. But I knew I had to broaden my horizons, and this month a few artists have release a great amount of new albums and music which I am looking forward to listen to this summer. On the same day as Mac Demarco the band Day Wave released their new album The Days We Had. I get bored during the summer and especially when I lounge in my room with nothing to do. Sometimes I decided to do work outs and I discovered that it is a great opportunity to listen to a new albums, plus it helps with boredom when I workout. Now, Day Wave has certainly out done himself with this new release. With one listen I felt completely immersed with nostalgia and calming quiet drives around town. The tracks on this album certainly convey momentum while calming with the lyrics.

For those of you who don’t know who Day Wave is, it is a Ameircan Indie rock band formed from Okland, California. The band consists with main instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Jackson Philips who formed this production in 2015. So it’s been not so long ago that Day Wave has come to the public.

In this albums, I would say that this is the type of album that is “safe and comfortable” meaning that this can appeal to any kind of modern music lover, indie or rock fan. I can play these songs while going to run errands, in the car, running, cleaning- it is a variety like this albums. Going to the beach? Kick back and play this album on your way there. The synthesized melodies correlated so well to the wispy vocals of Philips. The guitar riffs and patterns are rhythmic and catch, along with the subtle bass in the back ground. The chorus in song drops comfortable with endurance.

Songs that I enjoy ( in no particular order):

  • Something Here
  • Bring You Down
  • Wasting Time
  • Promises
  • On Your Side

I believe that artist Jackson Philips has come out of his shell to show his true artistry. He is not afraid to make the music and style he believes in. Another song that I enjoy is not from this album but a single he released called Drag in 2015. One thing I would say about this album and this style if music is that the songs do sound similar to one another. I can’t really pin point exactly what song I enjoyed because when I look for it the songs sound like one another. Production and time is good in this album, and I believe it deserves a 7.5 or an 8 out of 10. It is an enjoyable collection of songs and is nice to listen to while chilling or relaxing.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
