Felten Faves - May 2017

Felten Faves - May 2017

May 2017 may not have featured the expected arrival of summer in Portland, but it did include a ton of highlights for Sonically Awkward. I was able to snag an in-person interview with Tim Noyes, lead of Handsome Ghost after his show at the Doug Fir. At the end of May, SA was approved for not one, but 2 media passes to cover Sasquatch 2017. The site is starting to pick up big time followers and return visitors. Connections are being made, and things are busy as hell.

This month's Felten Faves playlist features a ton of summer-themed tracks, some sentimental tracks, and some that applied way too literally to my own personal life in this past month. POWERS, Wrabel, Ella Vos and Troye Sivan all pumped out summer tracks that feature slick production on top of heavenly vocals. Muse brings in the loud rock and roll, and Sente's 'Toothless' features the most experimental pop sound of the playlist. There are a couple hip hop tracks that are going to be on repeat all summer from Big Boi, Killer Mike, and Buddy. WATERS makes their return to the Felten Faves playlist with 'Hypocritical', and Leven Kali's 'Smile' is the jazzy track you didn't know you were missing in your life. 

June has already featured it's shares of ups and downs. My family is coming to visit in a week. I'm still working through the last 5+ interviews from Sasquatch, and working on securing more festival coverage for the site. Things are looking up for Sonically Awkward - thanks for continuously checking in. As always - let me know your favorites in the comments, and enjoy this playlist!

A lot has happened this past month for Sonically Awkward, but more importantly, my best friend and brother Conrad decided on his Graduate School Program - and will be the newest Bulldog at Minnesota Duluth - home of Bob Dylan. Congrats to you, Conrad!
