I feel so bad. I haven’t been as active as I should have on here. I’ve been very slack with posting recently and was desperately trying to think of more music to post about when I remembered back in August when I was gathering music from my friends and family, there was another set of music favourites I had yet to share with you all. So to make up for my shocking absence, here is another Courtesy Of, brought to you by my cousin!

Gonna be real, only ever heard a few of these before reading her list.
Gonna be ever more real, I definitely have an essay to begin that’s due to tonight but here I am writing for you all. You’re welcome.

Head Home – Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird: First of all, what a name. Second of all. This is a beautiful song. I’m listening right now for the second time as I write this and it’s one of my favourites from this list. The guitar in this song is beautiful if you’re into that.

City of Stars – La La Land: Hopefully I’ve made by love for this song clear, and if not; I love this song. A lot. I was very glad to see this on her list when she texted it to me.


When You Love Someone – James TW: Gotta love me some good James TW, and I’m glad to see my cousin is enjoying one of his songs just as much. This song is probably one of my favourites, it’s a beautiful song lyrically and I always love James’ voice.

Autumn – Palo Nutuni: Couldn’t find this song on Spotify and I don’t recall hearing it before but it sounds so familiar. So, so familiar. It’s a beautiful song either way.

Saved – Khalid: Everyone’s loving themselves some Khalid hopefully, and I’m so here for it. His whole American Teen album is magical and this is a magical, real-shit song.

<> at SiriusXM Studios on March 10, 2017 in New York City.

Falafel – Tom Misch: Tom Misch is definitely one of my favourite musicians ever. If you enjoyed one of my first posts about Zak Abel (linked), you’ll definitely vibe with Tom. This song features a bunch of smooth synths and a funky as heck guitar, as well as a bit of vocal percussion from Tom.

Loyalty – Kendrick Lamar ft Rihanna: I remember mentioning that DNA was probably my favourite song from the DAMN album, but I retract that. All I’ve been listening to recently is this song, it’s on my 365 playlist (linked) which I pump on my way to university so fair to say it’s a sick song. Glad to see my cousin enjoying this song just as much.


Free Smoke – Drake: I only listen to the Drake I can hear on the radio cos I’m not obsessed with the dude, but this song is ridiculous. The solo at the beginning is so amazing, probably my favourite part of the song.

Get It Together – Drake, Black Coffee, Jorja Smith: Again, haven’t heard this song. When I saw Jorja Smith my jaw dropped. Big love for that girl. This song is a funky song based on the beat, but her voice is so smooth is changes the feel so much. Definitely added to a couple of playlists too. Round of applause for my cousin on this one. It’s a good one.

Darling Street – Spit Syndicate ft Thelma Plum: I’ve heard of Spit Syndicate, but I’ve never looked into them too much. This is a cool song. A good summer song. Would recommend. I never got into Australian rap too much, but I really enjoyed this song.



Once again, apologies for the slack on my posts. Once I get these essays out of the way I’ll have all the time in the world to write and write and write for you all, share some more tunes. Until then, hopefully you enjoyed these songs, I know I found some new songs to add to some new playlists. Let me know what you think!
