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.
Top Tier Love - Lonely Benson
I was looking for a really good, "I've had a bad day, and just want to chill" song today, and "Top Tier Love" from Nashville artist Lonely Benson fits that bill incredibly well...in the strangest, lounge-y way possible.
Check the track out below:
What struck me right away when listening to "Top Tier Love" is that it feels like a song that you would hear in a little cafe somewhere where you are sitting with your friends discussing Wes Anderson movies (or, that is playing in the background in a Wes Anderson movie). There's such a retro-chill vibe to this track that is super rare in indie alternative, and somehow, Lonely Benson has managed to create a song that feels timeless, but modern.
And I have to admit: I did feel a little better having listened to "Top Tier Love"...and also really wanted a scone...and maybe a pair of seafoam pants and a Hawaiian shirt....
I honestly don't know how to describe the song better than that.
If you are looking for more fun, lounge-alt, be sure to check out other (really good) Lonely Benson tracks like Strawberry Afternoons (again, scone), or if you're looking for a bit darker tone, Losing It.
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list).
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
