[b]Song: "Oceans Niagara"
Artist: M83
Album: Fantasy[/b][/center]
I like the music, but the song as a whole is underwhelming. I expected a little more than it just paying the same chords over and over for most of the song.

[b]Song: "C'est Comme Γ‡a"
Artist: Paramore
Album: This Is Why[/b][/center]
Paramore once again. Last time, the song I checked out wasn't enough to get an add. But this song is definitely an improvement! A little repetitive, but I think I can work with it. It gets an add.

[b]Song: "Really Really Light"
Artist: The New Pornographers
Album: Continue as a Guest[/b][/center]
Nice and upbeat! πŸ˜„

[b]Song: "I Don't Know What You See In Me"
Artist: Belle and Sebastian
Album: Late Developers[/b][/center]
My first thoughts were that it was just okay, but once the beat kicked in, it really started hooking me. I'll add it!

[b]Song: "Lots of Nothing (feat. BENEE)"
Artist: Spacey Jane
Album: Lots of Nothing (feat. BENEE) - Single[/b][/center]
I like it! Good vibes and catchy.

[b]Song: "Gamma Rays"
Artist: Temples
Album: Exotico[/b][/center]
Not bad, but not doing enough for me. I'd check out another song from the album, but this is the only one available so far since it's yet to be released. Maybe I'll come back to these in the future when they another song or the album and they'll have one that grips me a little better. Until then...

[b]Song: "Let's Make a Mistake Tonight"
Artist: Tennis
Album: Pollen[/b][/center]
Ditto. Not bad at all, but it's just not hooking me enough. πŸ˜• However, while this album is unreleased too, it does have one other available. Let me give it a listen.

[center][media=https://youtu.be/ay-fG-pT_yc]
[b]Song: "One Night with the Valet"
Artist: Tennis
Album: Pollen[/b][/center]
Oof! 😣 It's about on the same level with the last one. I want to like it, but it's just not enough! We may revisit this album when it's released, but I'm thinking this band can put out a new song I'll enjoy better! We shall see.

What a bore. πŸ₯±

[b]Song: "Godzilla"
Artist: Nanna
Album: Godzilla - Single[/b][/center]
Damn! Based on the song title, I was hoping it was going to be cover of the Blue Γ–yster Cult song of the same name. πŸ˜‚ No matter, this song was pretty lovely anyway. Not sure why it's called what it is since the lyrics don't seem to have anything to do with Godzilla. πŸ€” Again, no matter. I like it!

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Carpenter"
Artist: Vagabon
Album: Carpenter - Single[/b][/center]
That's a funky beat! I'm willing to add it just for that, lol.

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Best Night of My Life"
Artist: American Authors
Album: Best Night of My Life[/b][/center]
Apparently this is a remake of this band's signature song "Best [b]Day[/b] of My Life". I'm familiar with the original and it's an okay song. This one is about the same. Not bad, but no add.

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]
[center][media=https://youtu.be/_2gxNGPC7iY]
[b]Song: "Hurricane Coming"
Artist: The Heavy
Album: Hurricane Coming - Single[/b][/center]
It's alright. It has catchy verses and riffs, but it's also a bit lacking in originality. It comes close, but no add.

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]
[center][media=https://youtu.be/3l1jW0vr4tM]
[b]Song: "Borderline"

Yawn...

[b]Song: "Pop Song 2"
Artist: Velvet Negroni
Album: Bulli[/b][/center]
This doesn't do much for me. But to be fair, it is a short song, so I'll check out another.

[center][media=https://youtu.be/OEbKho_rZvk]
[b]Song: "Never Said Peep"
Artist: Velvet Negroni
Album: Bulli[/b][/center]
That's better! I'm digging the reggae undertones. Very nice.

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Nothing Feels Good"
Artist: Rustbelt
Album: Nothing Feels Good[/b][/center]
Hell no! As soon as I heard that whiny auto-tuned voice, I knew I was going to hate this. Yuck!

[b]Song: "Sierra Echo X-Ray"
Artist: poptropicaslutz!
Album: Sierra Echo X-Ray[/b][/center]
Not as creative as their band name, lol. But it's okay. Only just, though.

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Under Tongues"

Those are some pleasant vibes!

[b]Song: "Whatever You Want"

it's just okay.

[b]Song: "Love From The Other Side"
Artist: Fall Out Boy
Album: So Much (For) Stardust[/b][/center]
Heavier than what I normally hear from this band. It has some hooks, but I'm not feeling it enough this time. Maybe when more song from this upcoming get released.

[b]Song: "Tropic Morning News"
Artist: The National
Album: First Two Pages of Frankenstein[/b][/center]
Not bad, but it's a bit underwhelming. Even when it picks up with the guitar bridge, it feels like it could be a bit more energetic than it is. For lack of a better way of describing it, lol. In any case...

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]
[center][media=https://youtu.be/yJFaEfwu6J8]
[b]Song: "$20"
Artist: boygenius
Album: the record[/b][/center]
Has a nice riff that doesn't get old. Not totally with the singing, but I suppose it's passable...

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]
[center][media=https://youtu.be/3zb9X_unuqo]
[b]Song: "Weightless"
Artist: Arlo Parks
Album: My Soft Machine[/b][/center]
Oh, I love this! As soon as she started singing, I knew I was going to. 😊 I believe this is the fourth year in a row I've added a song from Arlo Parks to my yearly playlist! I think it's safe to always have high expectations from her at this point. πŸ˜„

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Homebody"
Artist: Beach Weather
Album: Pineapple Sunrise[/b][/center]
These guys again. Last time, they had a song that caught me at first, but ended up losing me. This time, the song hooked me and kept hooked! It's very catchy! This is why it's important to revisit bands sometimes, they may put out a better song than I liked the first time around.

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Waste My life"

Too unoriginal. πŸ‘Ž

[b]Song: "You Say My Name"
Artist: The Heavy Hours
Album: The Heavy Hours[/b][/center]
That was a nice softer track.

[center][media=https://youtu.be/3enxeV7c2jw]
[b]Song: "Insomnia"
Artist: the moss
Album: Insomnia - EP[/b][/center]
It comes close to being acceptable, but there's just something about it that lost me, unfortunately...

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]
[center][media=https://youtu.be/yPwp9kLBA0o]
[b]Song: "checked out (feat. Public Library Commute)"

Lovely! I'm digging the vibes.

[b]Song: "The Art of Letting Go"

Nope. Does nothing for me.

[b]Song: "Big City Thing"
Artist: The Scarlet Opera
Album: Big City Thing - Single[/b][/center]
I was liking it until the chorus. Just didn't sit well with me. Cool band name, anyway!

[center][big][c=BF0000]REJECTED ❌[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "Operator Error"
Artist: We Are Scientists
Album: Lobes[/b][/center]
Not bad at all! I'll have to consider adding it. But for now, let's see if there's not a better one from this album.

[center][media=https://youtu.be/3JwDaB7NOrQ]
[b]Song: "Settled Accounts"
Artist: We Are Scientists
Album: Lobes[/b][/center]
This has a funkier dance feel to it! But just for the heck of it, let's try one more...

[center][media=https://youtu.be/8ZfSBrC-_Jo]
[b]Song: "Less From You"
Artist: We Are Scientists
Album: Lobes[/b][/center]
This is a tough one! I enjoy all three songs... But this one is speaking to me the most, so I'll give this an add. But I might have to give this whole album a listening to. It's rare for me find multiple potential adds for single album.

[center][big][c=359E00]ACCEPTED βœ…[/c][/big][/center]

[b]Song: "cherry cigarettes"

Alright, that's enough. And for out end tally, we have a whopping 20 adds and 20 rejects! A tie, but hot damn, 20 songs added!! 🀩 That's gonna be one tough number to beat, I'm thinking. We shall see!

If you heard any songs you enjoyed, please say so in the comments.

Thank you for joining me!
