AWOPBAMBOOM Volume 73 – Select Songs For Fellow Travelers

***

From the cool to the cruel, here’s what’s orbiting our musical universe this week.

*** 

Wiley, “Can’t Go Wrong”

Tinie Tempah? Nah, Richard Kylea “Wiley” Cowie, an MC with some dense flows from, you guessed it, England.

***

Tove Lo, “Cool Girl”

At one point in “Cool Girl” you can hear the drop from “Talking Body” creeping in. The video, well, it helps creep ya out. That being said, it’s still worth a watch.

***

Phantogram, “Cruel World”

American duo, Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, helm from Greenwich Village, NY. Never been? It’s extremely hipster and so is Phantogram.

*** 

 

Giggs, “Whippin’ Excursion”

If you entered an Uber at 2:30 am and heard Giggs’ voice, would you stay in the cab?

***

Justice, “Randy”

Woaaaah. This is fun. We’ll call this an upbeat, dancing version of the music you’d hear at your favorite shopping mall.

***

The 1975, “Somebody Else”

Enjoy the oddly appealing, grim video or skip to the 3 minute mark the tunes.
