Artist: Yung Gravy & Dillon Francis

Song: “Hot Tub” feat. T-Pain

Album/EP: Cake and Cognac

That keyboard hook is just too good to pass up – it grabs you from the beginning and takes you on the jubilant, catchy, silly, and maybe even a little steamy ride that is “Hot Tub” by Yung Gravy & Dillon Francis. It might currently be the dead of winter but this is a bonafide summer jam, complete with dance-mandatory beats and auto-tuned bars from T-Pain.

Artist: Sitting On Stacy

Song: “This Summer’s Day”

Album/EP: Single

It shouldn’t be any surprise based on its title that “This Summer’s Day” is a shimmering, bright-and-sunny-day kind of song from SoCal’s Sitting On Stacy. Crystalline lead guitar with charmingly warbling rhythmic accompaniment, splashing drums and tambourine, and a tight vocal refrain that embeds straight in your brain make for an irresistibly warm and catchy little rock ‘n roll ditty.

Artist: Lofi Legs

Song: “Thinking of You”

Album/EP: Leg Day

The Fab Four’s influence is clear on Lofi Legs’ “Thinking of You” – simple and bright harmonies, sitar-like melodic guitar tones, and a charming embrace of poppy old-school rock make themselves known throughout. Some no-frills production and tight songwriting also help bring this wonderful little bop to life.

Artist: The Royal Foundry

Song: “Hello Dreamer Baby”

Album/EP: Single

Swelling and building pop that consistently adds layers of exuberant and expressive instrumentals and effects, “Hello Dreamer Baby” certainly nails the dreamy aspect. Triumphant vocals that burst through a layer of entrancing chorals are supported by an eclectic collection of soaring guitars, drums, and synths in a sensitive and beautiful package. If you’re in need of a motivational soundtrack, look no further.

Artist: dEVOLVE

Song: “So Far”

Album/EP: Single

Mesmerizing house that takes the listener on a bit of a spaced-out energetic journey, “So Far” is a prime offering from producer dEVOLVE. Convergent piano chords and shifting affected vocals take centre stage in this club-ready single.

Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
