9 to Know – Music

I feel like its been a really great summer for music so far. Below are a few songs that you need to add to you playlist ASAP.

1. Lorde – Royals

Great voice, great beat and immensely catchy. You’ll find yourself nodding your head to this song asap.

2. Saint Motel – My Type

It sounds like it should be one of those new Heineken commercials. Will immediately wake you up from whatever doldrum you are in.

3. Lolo – Heard it from a Friend

Starts Fiona Apple, goes into Adele-like range, sprinkled with classic Alanis anger.

4. FRIENDS – The Way

If you like Prince and if you like Janet, this will sound familiar. This is a good thing. It’s the electric guitar that kills it and makes it sound so classic.

5. Panama Wedding – All of the People

This year’s version of Foster the People with a little more 80s flair. It sounds like it should be part of the musical montage in an Andrew McCarthy or John Cusack movie from 1986.

6. Touch Sensitive – Pizza Guy

Sounds like it should have been on the “Drive” soundtrack.

7. Kanye West – Bound 2

My favorite track on the “Yeezus” album. Kanye really is the best at soulful sample.

8. Wale ft. Sam Dew – LoveHate Thing

Just so damn good. DC representin’.

9. John Newman — Love Me Again

A great story-telling video that I didn’t expect.
