Richest Tracks of the Week – June 25th

Another week where we have more quantity than quality. Here are my favorite tracks from the previous week.

“Typical Story”- Hobo Johnson

– One of the best up-and-coming rappers, Hobo Johnson proves that he can drop a banger that goes with some sentimental storytelling. This track is 100 percent fun, lively, and gets the top spot as my favorite song of the week.

“Salted Caramel Ice Cream”- Metronomy

– The English group drops a groovy and futuristic electronic bop. Love the mixing and the vocals from Olugbenga Adelekan. If you are an indie pop fan or an EDM fan, this is definitely a track that you will take to a liking.

“True Blue”- Mark Ronson ft. Angel Olsen

– Holy smokes, I like a mainstream pop song. From the guitar riffs to Olsen’s vocals to a very catchy hook, Ronson nails this track in every way possible. Love, love, love the crap out of this track.

“That’s Life”- 88 Keys ft. Mac Miller & Sia

– The more post-mortem Mac Miller features that get released, the more that I miss him and I am sure other fans feel that way. The potential was there for him and I believed he was growing into a mature artist who would fuse soul and R&B into the rap genre, but unfortunately, he left us too soon.

Crown”- Stormzy

– A beautiful track from the UK rapper. I am a sucker for rap/sung tracks and this fits into the songs that I enjoy so much. You may find it tedious if you find tracks like this to be boring, lifeless and too sweet, but for me, this track works.

“Complainer”- Cold War Kids

– It has been a couple of years since I have heard from Cold War Kids. I loved their big hit, “First” but the band has flown under my radar since then. “Complainer” works as a funk track that came out of the 1970s. Even though there is a forgettable hook, the verses are amazing and provide a colorful transition for the group over the alternative side.
