Recent Listens: Chrome Sparks, Owl City, Prince Royce & More

Recent listens from Chrome Sparks, Owl City, Prince Royce and Shamir...

The Meaning of Love, Goddess (Chrome Sparks) - Synth music at its absolute best, ain't no doubt about it!

Blame It on Me (George Ezra) - Has a Vance Joy's Riptide-like folk touch somewhere, still pretty enjoyable.

All Good Things (Come to an End) (Nelly Furtado) - Slow and hypnotic, this melodious ballad is the ultimate eargasm.

My Everything (Owl City) - Contemporary Christian pop done right and Adam Young's voice is a major plus despite that Superheroes (The Script) vibe in the tune.

Back It Up ft. Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull (Prince Royce) - A low shelf life techno dance number that's marginally engaging while it lasts.

Demon (Shamir) - With a unique androgynous countertenor voice, singer Shamir does wonders in this catchy single.

Black and Yellow (Wiz Khalifa) - Been a while since I listened to this hip-hop song from Wiz Khalifa; still sounds legit, much like T.I.'s Live Your Life.

Letting Go (Dutty Love) (Sean Kingston ft. Nicki Minaj) - Very similar to Rihanna's Latin'esque Te Amo, yet very reggae and very catchy, especially Nicki Minaj's sick rap!

American Oxygen (Rihanna) - Rihanna shows a different side of hers in this mellow electro-tinged patriotic song.

The Juddering, Carousel (East India Youth) - My synthpop and electronic music explorations have lead me to William Doyle, whose music is best characterised by lush electronic noise alternating between ambient and distorted.
