Pretty good round. "Shadowboxin'" remains my favorite rap song. If RZA is producing a track, you know it's gonna be fire. As a QT fanboy, of course I'm going to love a song that constantly alludes to his filmography. I think I've listened to Brandy Clark before, but must've chosen the wrong tracks. "Girl Next Door" is highly enjoyable; spunky, catchy, nice hook, amusing lyrics. I came close to nominating a Wet Leg song in the last tourney. I like their dry, quirky sense of humor. @ynwtf channeling his inner @resopamenic with "Yoka Yoka Dance," which might've fared a bit better if the song didn't end halfway through the video. I just dusted off my Deep Purple Greatest Hits CD a few days ago; the middle section of "Hard Lovin' Man" is what keeps me from loving it. Impressive live vocal from Miley. I think Courtney Barnett is a clever lyricist, but I just don't care much for her sound. It's fitting that we get a song called "Elevator Operator" 'cuz it felt like we stepped into an elevator during the middle of the round, and unfortunately stepped back into that elevator to end the round. "Venus" and "Gold Day" aren't bad songs, just a little too low energy. "cantbreathe" was perhaps the most interesting song, and one that would likely grow on me with repeated listens.
