POZ Stream: Somos, Runaway Brother
Somos and Runaway Brother have kicked off their POZ sponsored tour, and we highly suggest you check it out if it comes by you. We’re very excited to put both bands together for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist feature. Check out the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!
“Goodbye” by Best Coast
For me “Goodbye” perfectly encapsulates the angsty, raw vibe of Best Coast along with their undeniable pop sensibility. This is a really simple yet unique record that I’ll always love.
“From Time” by Drake, ft. Jhene Aiko
At 5 and a half minutes long I don’t even get slightly bored when listening. The simplicity of the beat and piano, Jhene Aiko’s unique and drawn-out vocals, Drake’s intensely personal lyrics and smooth flow. They could have cut the track 3 minutes in but instead slightly added to a simple beat that by the end becomes really next level; for me a lesson in the power of subtlety.
“Giving Up” by Allison Weiss
This new Allison Weiss track is actually the first song of hers that really reeled me in. Just a great pop song that is extremely catchy. I love the simple rhythmic pattern and tone of the rhythm guitars that is continuous throughout the song event though they build off it in the choruses. Such chorus. Much hooks. So good. - Phil
"Every Time the Sun Comes Up" by Sharon Van Etten
I recently discovered Sharon Van Etten, and I’ve been completely floored by her voice and songwriting.
"My Very Own You" by Little Big League.
It’s from an album called “These Are Good People” that came out about a year ago. I’ve been listening to it a ton lately. The guitars interact with the vocals in such a cool and unique way- the songs are just so lush and full.
"Too Much By" by Drake
"Too Much" is my favorite song from his latest record. I honestly love Drake. He combines great pop sensibilities with production that is always interesting and futuristic feeling, and his voice manages to convey a ton of charisma. - Michael
"Cocoa Butter Kisses" by Chance The Rapper
"Acid Rap" has this amazing vibe and happened to coordinate itself with my life this year in a really solidifying way, making it one of my favorite records of 2014 (but I guess I’m late to the draw cause it really came out 2013). That being said this song is simply an insane jam that will leave you walking away smiling every time.
"Telegraph Ave" by Childish Gambino
A lot of people hate on this dude but there’s definitely something there with this record. This song is kind of a Drake spoof-thing I think but if that’s the case it’s a pretty good one with some serious hooks of it’s own. Also all the production on this record is super lush and enjoyable but it’s also really all over the place and keeps you on your toes, definitely a pretty unique listen.
"It’s Thunder and It’s Lightning" by We Were Promised Jetpacks
The release in this song is huge, seriously just bump it on nice speakers, gives me chills every time. These guys are great at taking one small idea and getting the most out of it and really allowing everything to be linear and have a narrative that plays out throughout a song. Also just great guitarists with mondo tone. - Justin
"Stay Together" by Robbers
This band’s singer gave the best, most charismatic musical performance I’ve ever seen. I used to fall asleep to this song every night, and I still do sometimes. Perfect band. Perfect song.
"Civilian" by Wye Oak
I discovered this band and song when Dangers posted an acoustic video of it on their blog a few years ago. I instantly fell in love and now I’m a huge fan. Her voice and melodies are amazing.
"The Dreamer" by Amigo The Devil
This is a beautiful love song written from the perspective of a serial killer. ‘Nuff said - Evan
Jaco Pastorius - “Come On Come Over”
That bass line. We go CRAZY when we hear THIS ONE!
Steely Dan - “My Old School”
Steely Dan are the most deliberate band, everything they do is for a reason and it’s wonderful
Randy Newman - “Sigmund Freud’s Impersonation of Albert Einstein in America”
Randy Newman’s satire is awesome
Weatherbox - “Two Satchels of Light”
Weatherbox is the only band that can make repetitive lyrics awesome
We made a cool playlist along with our tour mates Somos
