Each week the content writers for KCPR.org are going to publish a playlist containing a new song recommendation from each of them.
WHEN I’M OLDER – ASHE
Recommended by: Eden Baker
If you are feeling sad or nostalgic, “When I’m Older” is perfect for you! Ashe’s song perfectly describes the feeling of missing a person and being able to forget the memories you have with them, even if you don’t want to. The message paired with her gentle voice and smooth melody makes the song strangely comforting.
Gone – Crumb
Recommended by: Evan Gattuso
“Ice Melt” is the newest album from Crumb, the fluid concoction of rock, jazz and hip-hop influences. “Gone,” a peak in the middle of the album, is if MGMT’s 2010 album “Congratulations,” a mischievous fantasy, deepened and distorted into a seductive dream.
Durag activity – Baby Keem (ft. Travis Scott)
Recommended by: Alina Jafri
A song featuring Travis Scott never misses. This one especially has incredibly strong verses from both Baby Keem and Scott and they flow perfectly with the track.
Rider – Mereba
Recommended by: Lilly Leif
This track, from Spillage Village member Mereba, features the groups most talented singer delivering soft and smooth vocals over a drum heavy instrumental. It’s very representative of the energy of summer and a good listen when you need something calming.
Choker – Twenty One Pilots
Recommended by: Emily Brower
This is the second single from Twenty One Pilots sixth studio album “Scaled and Icy.” The track starts off sorrowful, but the optimistic instrumentals and hopeful lyrics create the perfect contrast.
Love Race – Machine Gun Kelly, Kellin Quinn
Recommended by: Tessa Hughes
Machine Gun Kelly continues to stray away from his rap roots with this new single, as he goes even further into pop punk, inching even closer to the pop side. The song is catchy, drum heavy and Kelly’s voice pairs nicely with Kellin Quinns.
