Here at SwanoDown, we listen to a ton of music on a DAILY basis. And during these days, of course, there are standout tracks. Below you'll find the 10 compositions we feel you should check out tonight, (or soon). We find these artists to be the most cutting-edge. And oh yeah, this is in no particular order... You decide!
Compositionally elevated songs by artists like Lincoln, Dope TAF, and Austin Hull, are all featured today.

K-T3– Friend or Foe

People play you closely, but often don’t have good intentions, K-T3 questions a certain someone's motives and is not willing to have the hood over his head. Peep the electric track, Friend or Foe.

Fine$$e Gawd– Gangway Freestyle

Delivery is key and Fine$$e Gawd does not pull any punches on his annunciation or flow. With a steady pace and head bobbing production, "Gangway Freestyle" is perfect for a late night car ride in a tinted whip.

Chaz Berry– Green Light

With eerie production and a mesmerizing loop, "Green Light" brings us to a foreign place, and Chaz Berry is our tour guide.

Dope TAF– Anger Management

Presented with a high energy, in your face style, Dope TAF has a wicked flow and knack for making allusions. When it gets crazy, best believe he gets gone like Barry Allen.

DoloBlues– Back

The cadence on a track is propulsion for that sing-a-long effect. DoloBlues speaks to us in his most humble voice, providing his with a short guide of how to win. Listen in and you can win too.

L. Teez– Waves

One of the milder tracks on this list, "Waves" speaks to the mistakes we have to make in order to learn. We as humans always want more, but it's often a detriment.

Elijah Blond– Immortal

More of a melodic track, "Immortal" has an ethereal feel that would match that of a dramatic entrance to a rock concert. Elijah Blonde really pours his emotions into this track, so I recommend it as something to get lost to.

Lincoln– Yours Truly

I was lying in bed when I first heard this record, but its introduction woke me right up. I would not deny this being one of my current favorite songs due to the cinematic potential it has. Couldn’t you see "Yours Truly" and a sweeping shot of Venice, Italy to start your new favorite movie?

Austin Hull– Clutch

Love is hard, especially when times in the relationship are uncertain. Austin Hull speaks on the multitude of emotions experienced when that connection is slightly severing.

Otis Fonde– Red Eye

With a guitar riff meant for a mystical beach, Otis Fonde guides us through the story of his perspective of social media and self confidence. As opposed to many “flexers”, Fonde talks about his struggle and how he never tried to fake his lifestyle.
