life validating statements.
The reason Canadians are so nice is easily explained. Once a year, on the sixth full moon all Canadians gather beneath the stars and perform a ritual that sucks all their meanness and cruelty and places it in Canadian Geese.
that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again
dashkeepingtabs said: hey gurl, what are some of your favourite tracks this year so far?
hey!! man, I haven’t actually thought about this deeply, but here’s what I can come up with right now
Milk - f(x) - the whole album is solid, but this is definitely the stand-out
Baby I Miss You - 2NE1 - perfect throwback R&B jam. Only song I like on that album
Johnny - Yemi Alade - great dance track from an up-and-coming Nigerian artist. I love her energy
Don’t - Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran is a great songwriter, but I only ever really like one track from his albums. This is the one I’d pick from X.
Fxxk Boys Get Money - FEMM - just all of the yes
Domino Game - Kiss&Cry - Most promising rookie group in a while. Hope they make it big
Every Little Word - MNEK - I’ve been following this dude for a few years now, since he got big on MySpace (when MySpace was still a thing). Cannot wait for his debut album to drop later this year - it’s about time
Pretty Girls - Little Dragon - was hard to pick a favorite from the Nabuma Rubberband album, as it’s become one of my favorite Little Dragon albums ever, but I keep coming back to this song. The instrumental, more than the lyrics, are strangely comforting. I also love the “you magnify the universe” line.
That’s pretty much it? I haven’t done a good job of keeping up with new music this year, but I’m trying to follow a few more music blogs and some Soundclouds and stuff.
