Maclean Carlson's Top 5 Tracks
1. Open Room by Tomo Nakayama
A beautiful track with so many dynamic layers and a bit of a Motown rhythm. This song has a broad emotional range that would be perfect for an intimate story.
2. Patchwork Friends by Hugo Hans
When I first heard this song, I felt haunted with positivity. The overwhelming sense of hope has such a deep impact.
3. Clouds by Hunter G K Thompson
I love how this song moves from curious tones to flat out upbeat awesomeness. Feel good songs like this are hard to find.
4. Hay, Hay, Make a Wish by Norman
The ultimate thinking song. It doesn't demand your attention, but it's powerful.
5. New York by Kevin Matley
I find myself often drawn to upbeat songs with quieter arrangements. This song can get your heart racing but leaves room to breath.
