Friday Favorites (8/21)

As a continuation of my biweekly series, Friday Favorites, I’m updating everyone on the best songs I’ve discovered recently. This week I’ve gone genreless and picked songs that truly appealed to me on first listen. Check them out and let me know if you like them!

Obsessed – Wevlth 

Moody electronic to the likes of Crystal Castles with an EDM influence gives this new release interest and appeal – I’m “Obsessed” with it, especially around the three minute mark when the beat starts slowing down. 

Don’t Look At Me – POORSTACY 

Neo-emo rap is not a genre I’ve explored much, but the introduction to it I got by POORSTACY’s energetic beats and melancholic lyricism have led me toward interest in his work and the genre in general. 

Fingerbib – Aphex Twin

Engaging electronic brings this late-90’s track to life. I love the variety in the Aphex Twin discography and can’t stop listening to this happy little song. 

Berlin – Blood Orange

A beautiful creation which mixes the vocals of Blood Orange, Porches, and Ian Isiah. “Angel’s Pulse” is one of my favorite recent albums and Berlin is probably my favorite track on it. 

Sea Sick – binki

An anti-pop love song to get you moving on these slow days. 

As always, you can listen to these songs and more on my Friday Favorites Spotify playlist

Thanks for reading.
