5 Songs We Loved This Week | 22nd September 2017

5 songs we loved this week

This is simple. We love these songs. You should listen and tell us what you think of them.

Let me also point out that this is not necessarily focused on new songs. Just what we’ve been listening to and loving this week.

1. Brunch – ‘The Goose’

My favourite thing for brunch is Egg’s Benedict. I guess failing that you could always have ‘The Goose’. I crack myself up. I really do. It’s no secret that I love the 90’s and believe it was the best decade for music. Ever. Which means that it should be no surprise that I’m a big Brunch fan with their verseCHORUSverse vibe, crunchy guitars, and slacker attitude. Mint.

2. Simen Mitlid – ‘Window’

I also enjoy a minimal acoustic track with delicate and understated vocals. And so here’s Simen Mitlid drawing a line between Sufjan Stevens and CSNY. Plus, it has hand claps and who does not love hand claps? His debut album Everything Is The Same came out on 1st September. You should check it out. Like, now.

3. The Gametes – ‘Stuck In A Turnstile’

Sometimes I also love music that sounds like it is the most apathetic thing that has ever been created. Enter The Gametes and their angular chord changes, spoken word esque vocals, and generally ‘can’t give a fuck’ attitude. IT’s all good. Lovely metaphor too. Stuck in a turnstile as a metaphor for life. That’ll work.

4. Peter Adams – ‘Glow’

It’s about time for the neo classical section right? Yep. Enter Peter Adams. This is a lush and ornate offering that delves into melancholia and some intricate arrangements that caress and lull the listener. There’s an understated grandeur here and I am mad for it. Especially when Peter’s vocals enter and then some minimal piano. It’s gorgeous.

5. Pink Milk – ‘Awakening of Laura’

May as well finish off with some very vintage sounding shoegaze in the form of Pink Milk. However, this is washed over with very catchy hooks. That deliberately fly in the face of traditional shoegaze. All the better for it. Who needs everything to be done a second time? We were all there the first time. Let’s get on with things.
