The 9 Best Songs In The World

1. Nick Leng – Playing With Fire

Hey Nick, it’s been a while. The classically trained L.A. artist returns with “Playing With Fire,” a somber but stunning pop soundscape with enough of a beat to get you moving.

2. Charlotte Day Wilson – Work

With a voice like that, there’s no way you won’t be into the latest from Charlotte Day Wilson. Stripped down soul-pop from what’s sure to be another Toronto stand-out.

3. johan – stard(us)t

Every time we’re about to swear off alt-R&B, somebody like johan comes by and convinces us otherwise. The Boston upstart’s latest is “stardust.” Check it.

4. Yoke Lore – Hold Me Down

A favorite that we featured on ATG just yesterday. Cerebral danceable indie-pop from one half of Yellerkin for fans of Local Natives.

5. Jesiah – Babylon

Premiered by the good people at FTW earlier this week, “Babylon” is our first exposure to Jesiah. This L.A. artist seems to be onto something good with his Local Natives meets Youth Lagoon meets Sufjan Stevens sound.

6. Naomi Pilgrim – Sink Like A Stone

We’ve already gushed about one of Sweden’s finest pop talents. This is just a reminder for you all to get on board. Now.

7. ∆ugust – Sword

Slick cinematic pop from this new London duo produced by none other than Charlie Hugall (Florence + The Machine, Halsey). Its probably safe to place your bets on these two.

8. The Invisible – So Well (Ft. Jessie Ware)

A proven collaboration gets another go as The Invisible and Jessie Ware reunite for the first time since the latter’s Devotion LP.

9. BADBADNOTGOOD – Speaking Gently

What better way to end the week than on a jazzy psychedelic exodus courtesy of Toronto’s native sons BADBADNOTGOOD.
