Throughout the week, The FADER highlights the songs we can't get enough of. Every Monday, we round them up in one post with excerpts of their write-ups. Here they are, in no particular order.
"Ojitos Lindos" – Bad Bunny feat Bomba Estéreo
Un Verano Sin Ti proves why Bad Bunny is one of the most crucial forces in pop music working today. "Ojitos Lindos" aches with gratitude for a deep and restorative love without sacrificing any of the addictive hookiness Benito does so well.
"Understand" – Mall Grab feat. Turnstile's Brendan Yates
"'Understand' is, if anything, dreamy and serene, with Yates' vocals floating delicately throughout. A two-step beat knocks the speakers throughout while a wistful cascade of synths is draped over the top of the sighed refrains. Only an occasional yelped line would hint at his status as one of hardcore's most vital frontmen. – DR
"Mistakes" – Sharon Van Etten
The glam-rock tint of this song, taken from Van Etten's new album We've Been Going About This All Wrong, will replace the heart in your chest with a disco ball. It pretty much entirely makes up for recording a "Starman" cover for an Elon Musk documentary.
