Take It or Leave It - Great Good Fine Ok

I love this beat. They are upbeat and dance yet they keep it under control in a way that you can still listen to this song to chill out. I actually love Jon Sandler's high pitch voice in the song. The beginning is nice as an almost drowned out version of the rest of the song and then seems to start out like a normal song but then goes into their own unique style that is highly mixed and refreshing.

F**ked Up - Young Rising Sons

F**ked Up keeps to Young Rising Son's tune but in a way seems to pick up a slight more boy band-ish mood. Maybe in the way the lyrics sound like he's taking care of someone seems to remind me of a Five Seconds of Summer single. I still love the voice jumps in the chorus which has a good feel that is usually put out by this band. The music video is just a usual mix of them being on tour but is still entertaining.

Molecules - Atlas Genius

I do not really think it is worth it to watch the music video for more than ten seconds but it should be pretty important to listen to the lyrics. There's a reason Keith Jeffery is so clear. Those lyrics are interesting and also passing out some words to live by, or at least to get tattooed on your body. The music sounds like Atlas Genius in almost every way. It takes on a new twist but mostly sticks to their style

Let's Make A Lot Of Money - Junior Prom

You can never expect what Junior Prom will do next. They make each song its own and they never blend together like a melting pot of one good band. Instead, each song stands out on its own and so does this song. The most consistent feature is Mark Solomich's voice. He sounds almost like he should be in a more classical rock band which seems to anchor their unique sounds. Their lyric video is unique and interesting. I can not wait for this band's new album coming out soon!

Driving Through A Dream - Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

This song is calming to me but i like how Andrew McMahon mentioned that it was about not being able to sleep at night because of the ideas one gets. This is just a relatable idea to any creative type especially if they produce their best work at night. It is just a soothing song and the piano is not entirely too strong throughout it but as it becomes stronger at the end, it is a fantastic detail.

Band of the Week - Grouplove

The Band of the Week this week is GrouploveGrouplove is an amazing band. Their lead singer does not have a particularly conventionally pleasant voice but he makes it work in a way that makes him awesome. They find a way to make beautiful music while at the same time making fun music for parties and just good times. Hannah Hooper's creates a nice balance for their songs as she straight up has a sweet voice which can be an advantage for them compared to bands that are composed of all guys. You probably have heard their songs Tongue TiedShark Attack and I'm With You (if not, go listen now). I suggest giving a listen to Beans On PizzaBitin' The Bullet and Schoolboy.

15 Dreams - New Politics

The beginning is chaotic to snatch your attention without question so that they can transition over into a fast paced yet dreamy and pleasant rap. This is just an amazing motivator. This as to be my favorite single of theirs that they have released. Their sound seems to change a bit for every album and this song makes me so excited for them to release Vikings. I actually feel like this song is a great motivator to follow your dreams, to chase after them but to also take a step back and remember what you are running after.
