rock nyc Top Songs 7-15-21 – 7-21-16

No Sleep – Gucci Mane  – From his recorded in three days eagerly anticipated new album, this is a modern snapshot of the drug addicted, brutally violent ex-con, and one of the best rappers around. Here he is as frustrated as possible by a system that, whether Gucci was guilty or not, set him up big time. This is a dramatic return to glory.

We Gon Ride (Feat Gucci Mane) – Dreezy – The best song off a terrific new album, this features a great Gucci rap, and Dreezy sounds somewhere between Nicki and Rihanna, hard but distracted… son of a gun: “Dreezy and Gucci, Dreezy pass me the Uzi”!

Mesmerized – Walker And The Brotherhood Of The Grape – This is Americana classic rock hybrid with a tune so catchy it works as the sort of earworm you want to thank. Plus, Walker’s vocal is first rate, the bridge terrific and the hook the chorus.

The House Always Wins – William Bell – The soul giant doesn’t have the greatest voice in the  genre, but his songwriting are unparalleled and his use of horns as accents is a lesson.

Shaking Sad – Black Market Karma – Works like alt rock dreamscape, loud and melodic but laid back and druggy, part psychedelia. And the song is a catchy stroke, best on the album and the album is good.

Black Boys On Mopeds – Jack Palmer, Amanda Palmer – I didn’t like the album, but this Sinead O’Connor cover, with Amanda’s dusky vocal not up to Sinead’s but even still nearly perfectly paced and completely concentrated agitprop.
