ICYMI: Under the Radar Hits

In Case You Missed It: Under the Radar Hits

by Maryssa Beale

To quote the great Chance the Rapper, “When the praises go up, the blessings come down.” Well, we must have praised the music Gods a lot due to all of the fantastic albums consistently falling in our laps.  Beyonce, Rihanna, and Kanye have all dropped some of their best albums this year. Even the elusive Frank Ocean decided to emerge from his hidden studio to release two albums last month. All of this to say, that there may have been some killer hits that you missed during all of the surprise album releases.

All That Junk’s In Case You Missed It’s mission is to inform you of the things that you might have failed to notice in music, movies, tv, and all things pop culture. Join us this week as we reveal tracks that haven’t gotten their fair shakes.

1. Best to You by Blood Orange

Blood Orange aka Dev Hynes has written for larger acts such as Solange Knowles, Florence and the Machine, and The Chemical Brothers which like other singer/songwriters could overshadow his solo career. But Hynes’ terrific album, Freetown Sound, looms over his prolific song writing career and will be on multiple Best Of  lists in December.

2. Higher by Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen will never have another hit bigger than Call Me Maybe. This is a fact. However, Jepsen has a strong and loyal fan base, albeit smaller than most pop idols, that keeps her from being a definite one hit wonder. Higher is one of the catchiest tracks from Emotion B Side. After listening to the B sides, make sure to revisit the original album.

3. Collect on My Love ft. Alex Newell by the Knocks

Listen to this song. It is joyous and wonderful and yet you probably haven’t heard of it. That is all.

4.  Parking Lot by Anderson.Paak

How many rappers do you know can jump on the drums halfway through performing? The answer is none and even if they did none can command the stage from behind their kit better than Anderson.Paak. You might’ve heard of him on Dr. Dre’s Compton but Paak’s latest album, Malibu is where he really shines. Our suggestion is to try to catch him live next time he’s in town.

5. Strive ft. Missy Elliott by A$AP Ferg

The latest album title from A$AP Ferg, Always Strive and Prosper, sounds like a catchy name for a self-help book, which is fitting since Strive featuring Missy Elliott is the most motivational song on this playlist.

6. Youth by Glass Animals

This band’s tracks have been described as a “tropical fantasyland” to just being down right wacky. Despite the noticeable shift in tone for their sophomore album, we hesitate to predict that they’ll be in a slump.

7. Real Love Baby by Father John Misty

I Love You, Honeybear was one of our favorite albums of 2015 and Real Love Baby plays like the track that got removed at the last minute. Father John Misty isn’t expected to release an album in the near future but this track will hold us over until then.

8. 33 God by Bon Iver

If the tracklisting is any indication, this is set to be one of Bon Iver’s weirdest albums but this song shows that it might be a good thing.

9. Fountain of Youth by Local Natives

I would enjoy this song even if the message wasn’t to listen to us kids. This song and other tracks from their upcoming third album display growth and a much needed change from the somber tracks of their sophomore outing.

10. Running with the Wolves by Aurora


In this case, we saved the youngest for last but we don’t say that to diminish the talent of this young artist hailing from Norway.

Keep An Eye Out For:

Warpaint, Heads Up
Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine
Phantogram, Three

#ICYMI Bonus: Summer may be coming to an end but it’s never to late to listen to the Sounds of Summer or join our End of Summer Party, a two-junk boat party with live music.
