Sofia Kourtesis • By Your Side

Long Tall Arsetee & the Shaker Intros (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 1 June 2021 11:33 (four months ago) link

Reggaeton star goes the 80’s disco pastiche route (ripping off a bit of Fergie in the process). Dropped a week ago and is climbing to the top of the charts in Spain and Latinamerica, seems like it will be an early summer anthem in there:

Rauw Alejandro - todo de ti

kali uchis "telepatía"

dyl, Wednesday, 2 June 2021 03:10 (four months ago) link

it’s a pretty big hit for her worldwide. the album it’s from is great too, if you haven’t heard it.

Long Tall Arsetee & the Shaker Intros (breastcrawl), Wednesday, 2 June 2021 05:51 (four months ago) link

Yeah song was huge in the first months of the year, it has 300M streams on spotify and it still is the #33 most listened song worldwide in there. I think its big moment as a single already passed though.

Ngaiire - Closer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXZm1MOlegE

(if for no reason other than it begins with "In the summer / meet you on a corner street...")

three weeks pass...

anybody working on a summer playlist they want to share?

(•̪●) (carne asada), Thursday, 24 June 2021 15:36 (four months ago) link

This is more of a rolling list of my very favourites from the year so far, but I'd say that almost everything counts as a summer jam in my book: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5LWzXc65oUzyUGQQIec5UK?si=fb3f5ab5ae6a48ba

wizkid ft tems - essence
capella grey - gyalis

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 17 August 2021 01:17 (two months ago) link

thanks for these. this is usually my favourite thread on ILM (apart from EOY poll) but Summer really feels like it never got started and now it's starting to draw to a close.

Here are a few I'm enjoying:

Dunnie - Overdose
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov6mUj8HjkI

Salute - Want U There
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9MdUfXtr18

shiv - Hold Me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x0MD6axjTY

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 17 August 2021 10:14 (two months ago) link

The chorus of Dunnie is ridiculously addictive, it's so simple with the guitar added to the maracas, and Oxlade adds another layer of seduction. The song is unassuming and yet probably my most-listened this year.

Nabozo, Wednesday, 18 August 2021 08:35 (two months ago) link

OTM. That's why I like it - super simple but beautifully executed.

Marina Sena - Cabelo

Saudando as cores do verão

Nabozo, Sunday, 29 August 2021 12:23 (one month ago) link

Also cool to hear her alone with her guitar and cactus: Cabelo. It's no Ibiza Lockdown but I wish artists were doing nothing but video clips like that, with minimal artifice and no fucking film scenario.

Nabozo, Sunday, 29 August 2021 12:41 (one month ago) link

Also time to rediscover Woza with a clip. The song has grown on me throughout the year. Break, feeling, bass, what more do I want.
