Eric’s Top Ten of the Week

#10 Cold Showers – Shine

With guitars that sound like pre-Joshua Tree U2 and vocals that imitate the goth styles of the 80’s Cold Showers soar to new heights on this outstanding track

#9 Tacocat – New World

Chunky, perky power chords bubble throughout this power-pop cum pop-punk jam that will leave the most jaded punks compelled to hop on the spot

#8 Whitney – Giving Up

Whitney returns from their well deserved break with another summer-ready cut that sounds like it comes transmitted from a forgotten 70’s soft rock AM station

#7 Hatchie – Her Own Heart

KRJF highlighted artist Hatchie has finally released her full length debut just in time for the summer and this standout from the album is the perfect soundtrack to long days spent on the river

#6 Anna of the North – Thank Me Later

AOTN continues to keep her listeners on their feet by genre hopping between various styles of synth-driven pop while always maintaining an excruciating level of cool, calm and collected

#5 NO WIN – Being Teen

Maybe we are biased since Danny of NO WIN came by the KRJF offices this week, but make no mistake: NO WIN’s new album downey is already a contender of album of the year and this track makes a solid case for this argument

#4 Tony Molina – Not the Way To Be

San Mateo County’s reining king of rock continues to show his flair for introducing big ideas in small spaces by putting together a power-pop masterpiece that’s barely over a minute long

#3 Faye Webster – Right Side of My Neck

Faye Webster is having a hell of a year and tracks like Right Side of My Neck show off why we have a lot to look forward for this rising artist that draws equally from 70’s RnB and 90’s indie pop

#2 Patience – The Girls are Chewing Gum

Inspired by 80’s Italo disco, Patience delivers one deliciously catchy heartbreaker of a song that will refuse to leave once it gets inside your head

#1 Drab Majesty – Oxytocin

What can be said? The king of goth delivers another earth shattering masterpiece that has enough dark synth energy to make this summer feel like winter has returned
