Sounding like it could have appeared on an ’80s movie soundtrack, Elnuh’s “City of Oz” is daydream-inducing track propelled by lo-fi drums, reverberating keyboards and spacey vocal harmonies.

Chris Maddin “Stuck in Edit”

From his 2017 magnum opus Sterequiem, Chris Maddin’s “Stuck in Edit” is led by a steady piano progression embellished by echoing lead guitar chords. The result feels like being carried away on a cloud. Once those elements come together with Maddin’s warm tenor vocals, the song seems like it was made for a nap in the middle of a park.

Demitasse “There’s Still Beauty at the Base of the Mountain”

Channeling the Beatles circa Revolver, Demitasse’s “There’s Still Beauty at the Base of the Mountain” is cheerful and curious slab of song-craft benefitting from warm vocal melodies, piano arpeggios and a mid-to-uptempo beat.

Mr. Pidge “Josh Is in the Club (Osid)”

With its laid back hip-hop beat, Mr. Pidge’s “Josh is in the Club (Osid)” feels more like an interlude at first, but the lo-fi harmonies and impressive saxophone leads take the song to sophisticated heights.

Sunny and the Sunliners “I only have Eyes for You”

San Antonio legend and Chicano soul pioneer Sunny Ozuna's version of “I Only Have Eyes For You” is simply amazing. After the song opens with tremolo-heavy guitar chords, Ozuna’s smooth vocals take listeners on a '60s journey aided by warm electric piano and staccato trumpet bursts.
