Vincent Nguyen

Midterms are nearly over for most Matadors, so in the mean time, chill out and cool down with another set of the Sundial’s Songs of the Week. Some notable artists are featured this week, including hip-hop legend Nas and indie-rock specialists Cold War Kids. Other tracks will hopefully keep you upbeat for the rest of the week, so check out the five-track list.

Nas – The Season

  • The legendary Nas. The master J-Dilla. That speaks for itself.

Cold War Kids – Hot Coals

  • The Kids are back with a new album and their featured track reflects their signature sound. Their release of their new album “Hold My Home” was released a few weeks ago and it’s definitely one to check out.

La Plage – Rendez Vous

  • Extremely upbeat and catchy, La Plage’s record is definitely a foot-tapper. It’s funky and the vocals are absolutely mesmerizing. The track will surely stay stuck in your head all day long.

Oceaán – Veritas

  • Off of his ‘The Grip’ EP out 17th November, Oceaán new track introduces a subtle beat, and as soon as his vocals come in, it’s a completely new vibe. Great track to listen and relax to. Plus, it’s an awesome teaser to his upcoming EP.

Sweater Beats – Cloud City

  • The Brooklyn-based artist’s track is reminiscent of the musician, Flume. Sweater Beats, who opened up for Chance the Rapper, just released his Cloud City EP last week, and this track is one of the highlights of the four-track EP. A stellar tune that everyone can dance to, so plug in the aux cable and jam out.

That’s it for another week of music, so stay tuned next week for another installation of the Sundial Songs of the Week!
