In case you’re wondering what happened in music this week, I’m here to give you the 5 best songs released either as singles or as part of an album this week. Lets go.
1) The Killers– “Shot At the Night”
I know you might be thinking that the Killers haven’t made anything good since their breakout album, “Hot Fuss”, but this song is a return that album’s 80’s feel and epic synth balladry.
2) The Royal Concept – “Gimme Twice”
This song has been a favorite of mine for a while, but was released this week on their EP entitled, “Royal”. For fans of The Strokes and Phoenix, for sure.
3) Ben Khan – “Eden”
An amazing little piece of electronic pop. Very similar to Jai Paul’s recent work.
4) Aloe Blacc – “Love is the Answer”
A bit of funky soul to end the week on a high note. The production from Pharrell has a great bounce, but gives Aloe the spotlight.
5) Phantogram– “Selling Nothing”
Seeing Phantogram live was pretty incredible. It’s been a long time since their first album, but this second track off the new album shows they are just as on top of their game as before.
BONUS TRACK:This track is not from this past week, but from last month, but its too great not too share. Enjoy!
John Legend – “Open Your Eyes”
