Would You Ever - Skrillex & Poo Bear
I've never been a big Skrillex fan...always seemed a little too hardcore for me, but this fresh new one's got a great, thumping, happy groove. Check it out...
Medusa - Grace Savage
I love a great chill tune, you know, the kind of song that you can be playing that makes great background music that's doesn't get in the way of good conversation yet keeps everyone grooving in their head. Yeah, that's this one...
Learn to Let Go - Ke$ha
Oh, Ms. Ke$ha's got a brand new sound. With all of the tribulations she's gone through over the past couple of years, she's come out of it and is now proving what a prolific and talented songwriter she truly is. Gone are the days of brushing teeth with a bottle of Jack and here we are treated to a more mature and thoughtful singer/songwriter...and it works! Check out Learn to Let Go...
Fashion - Randa
Here's one of those songs I just can't seem to find anywhere on the Internet, but it is definitely worth a mention here. The tune's got a hot groove and the vocals are rapalicious! Check it out on Spotify.
F*ck They - Sofi Tucker
Here's a mindless and hypnotic, bassy dance tune by dance duo Sofi Tucker. Check it out...warning, explicit lyrics ahead...
There you have it, five of the freshest new tracks from this past week. As I said, though, where last week's selections were slim pickins', there are even more new and noteworthy tunes from this week. Here are the honorable mentions...
Don't Wanna Wake Up - Capital Kings - A nice, dancey tune.
No Fear - DeJ Loaf - R&B groovealicious!
Hide & Seek - Felon - I almost chose to highlight this thumping dance track, but here it is anyway.
New Romantics - Taylor Swift - I am not now, nor have ever been a Taylor Swift fan, but this is one tune that's surely pleasing to the ears.
Make It Up to You - Julia Michaels - This one reminds me a little of early Kelis, with a thumping beat, deep, sexy vocals and finger-snapping beats to boot.
Well that's it for now. Hopefully this coming Friday's list of new songs won't be so extensive. For now, though, I'm going to be enjoying some of this hot new stuff. I hope you will be too!
