Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
T.M.V. - Gonzalla
It's rare that a pop song worms its' way into my head, but "T.M.V." by Los Angeles based artist Gonzalla has done just that (which is obviously why I'm sharing it with y'all, that way you can have it in your heads too...it's a vicious cycle).
Check the track out below:
This is pure indie pop: the sort of nonchalant vocals reinforced by summery synths that we all know (and those of us who are fans, love), but "T.M.V." is just so spotlessly produced and balanced that it really does stand out for me from a lot of the other indie pop. I like the way Gonzalla plays within mid-tempo, edging towards a more laid-back sound, but never lapsing into a slower pace (even when the music drops completely, the energy stays the same).
I think I would be weirded out if you, gentle reader/listeners were not singing along with with "T.M.V." by the end; like the best indie pop, it gets its hooks into you and does not let go...I had some errands today, and caught myself just singing "runnin' through my veins" to myself on more than one occasion, so don't be surprised if it happens to you as well.
Here's the June 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (as is tradition)! This months list was actually one of the harder ones for me to put together into something that feels (at least sort of) cohesive...I'm not sure why, but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end!
Well. I've heard you, and here it is: theguysfrom playlists are now available on Spotify! You can find us by looking for theguysfrom on Spotify, click on this link for the June '17 Spotify List OR, here's the whole playlist for June right here:
If you're looking for me to add these lists somewhere beyond Apple Music and Spotify (or you want some of the old lists on Spotify), you're going to have to convince me (hard) by chatting with me here, or on Twitter (linked below)
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
