This week we have a battle between love and ownership with tracks by Soren Bryce and Esme Patterson, and one between dark and light with a track from The Airborne Toxic Event.
Some jam band vibes and British rock are mixed in for balance. However, as usual, the light always wins. This victory is especially pronounced with my most-listened to track of the week by Deacon Blue.
Pool Cosby, Soren Bryce — Back
Genre: Sample-Based | Vibe: Sweet and Sour
Tangy production by Pool Cosby complements Soren Bryce waxing nostalgic about a love addiction.
Deacon Blue — Intervals
Genre: Sophisti Pop | Vibe: Twinkly
For those who yearn for Christ-like love and want something more original and subtle than traditional Christian pop rock.
Grouplove — Youth
Genre: Electropop | Vibe: Sensual
Inspires me to swap the question “How old are you?” with “How young are you?” since youth is eternal, true, and, of course, sexy.
Esmé Patterson — Momentito
Genre: Future Folk | Vibe: Fun Loving
Speaks to the little desire in all of us to make the people we love our own and love the people we think we don’t want to love.
Mosses — T.V. Sun
Genre: Jam | Vibe: Optimistic Trip
Sounds like a jam band session that would take place in a cafe basement of Arabia, the location of a secret night life.
The Airborne Toxic Event — Come On Out
Genre: Alternative | Vibe: Encouraging
If you like The Killers and a bit of 70s rock you’ll enjoy this.
Cornershop — Slingshot
Genre: British Rock | Vibe: Muffled Sunshine
I have no idea what’s being said, which somehow makes it even better.
