Carly Rae Jepsen – I Really Like You
I have never before featured a song on the Weekly Playlist because I really really like the video. Until now. This video featuring Tom Hanks is all kinds of awesome. I don’t know what it is but whatever he’s got going here is delightful. The song is cool too, so it fits right in to our soundtrack for this week.
The J Geils Band – Centrefold
This was a Top 40 hit in 1982. I missed this one because I didn’t even know what music was then. So I discovered it today, thought it was awesome and it’s on the playlist!
Jed Nayef – Diamonds In The Dirt
New York city artist Jed Nayef offers up a powerhouse vocal with an evolving soundscape on this new release. It’s the first song I’ve heard by him and I really like it.
Enkore – FFT (0-100 Freeverse)
I think Ankur Johar aka Enkore is one of the most talented young artists in Indian hip-hop right now. I’ve heard him freestyle live and I really like his flow and lyrical ideas. This single is a lead up to his new EP which releases soon. Keep an eye out for that! (Oh, there is some strong language in this song so if you’re sensitive to that, don’t hit play.)
John Newman – Losing Sleep
I first heard John Newman on Calvin Harris’s hit song Blame. I really like his voice, and this song off his debut album.
