Instead of turning down submissions that don’t fit in any of our other playlists, we’ve decided to make a new one. It’s called Extra Earworms. It is a weekend playlist for the best new tracks/videos by new artists.
Yourszlf – Feel It (Submission)
Have you ever had your heartbroken? Well, guarding your feelings is the natural defence mechanism. Is it fair to the new people you meet? The answer is debatable. However, it is a human experience, as frequent as riding the subway in New York City with a mentally deranged individual. Luckily, the Brooklyn-based recording artist made a song for these moments. Stream the audio below.
Jeigo – Everywhere I Go (Submission)
As the loop comes back to its beginning state, Jeigo’s dance track builds. Honestly, the dramatic break that I anticipated never comes, but it does continuously increase in impact. It’s longer than most records out today. Hear the latest release from the South Londoner now. Then, check out his new EP entitled, ‘SHDW004’.
Amtrac – Old Times featuring Anabel Englund (Submission)
As I listened to “Old Times” for the first time, I envisioned myself eating thin crust pizza downtown in the West Village. Again, Deep House/House music will probably always get a nod from me.
Mines Falls – Easy Now (Submission)
Mines Falls’ vocals paired with its production have a haunting/eerie quality, to me, that is attractive. Based on what I’ve read about the track, it is a song written after a tough breakup. As weird as this may sound, I feel like that’s when I’ve written my best material. The agony made me look for pensive words to distinctly illustrate what I went through—emotionally. I can feel a similar energy from “Easy Now”.
Tree Thomas – That’s Love (Submission)
Most boys/men might say Bay Area recording artist and guitarist Tree Thomas is a hater, but I don’t see any lies here. Whether he mirrors what he sings and raps about, there’s plenty of truth in his lyrics. Watch the new video as the gold-toothed artist spells out the many ways to show and experience love.
JahleelFaReaL – Buzzin (Submission)
We’ll be in Austin, Texas soon for the city’s premier music week, so “Buzzin” comes at a special time. The young rapper from the city releases the bouncy dance track that boasts about his accomplishments and warns people who plan to double cross him. Stream the fun song below.
The Funk Hunters – Party Rockin’ (Submission)
Canadian musical duo, The Funk Hunters, recently released the infectious dance record, “Party Rockin'”. If you’re reading this before pressing play, it is reminiscent of what Daft Punk is best known for— their signature sound. Nonetheless, this record in particular finds inspiration in breakdancing.
Shallou – Find featuring Kasbo and Cody Lovaas (Submission)
How mesmerizing is Shallou’s voice on “Find”? Is he a trained singer? I’m unsure, but his voice commands attention as soon as you hear it. Check out the second track from the singer’s forthcoming EP, Souls.
L8Loomer – Good For That featuring Anne Dereaux (Submission)
Tampa’s own L8Loomer shares a new song about love, relationships, and being right for someone. Next, you’re introduced to the lucious angelic vocals sung by Anne Dereaux, a Los Angeles-bred singer and architect. “Good For That” is a slick track made for cutting rug with your loved one in your arms. Try it.
Coke – Da Da (Submission)
Rummaging through the carnal passages of my eardrums, Coke slams all expectations about Punk Rock being dead. It’s very much alive and well. It never resuscitated. It’s just we, humans, lose interest in all things and cast them away. Getting back to the band who just played Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco, can you hear the damn instruments?! Please, do a show in New York City, so I can get topless and dance with you.
Stage Republic – Rise and Fall (Submission) (Bonus)
“Rise and Fall” has the oddest vocal work I’ve listened to in a good while. However, the Dutch Electro-Pop singers-songwriters have a uniqueness to them. Perhaps, my taste may be a little too quaint… After all, I do call the shots here.
