This Is Our Jam: Lana Del Rey, Savages, & A New Kelis Track

jam-lana
This week, we have the return of one of our favorite R&B stars with some unlikely production courtesy of an indie-rock heavy weight. We've also got some great synth-pop, British post-punk, a new tune from U.K. production duo Disclosure, and what may be the most obvious person to ever soundtrack a Great Gatsby film (we're not complaining). Enjoy!

Disclosure — Settle
"You & Me (feat. Eliza Doolittle)"
Production duo Disclosure is prepping one of the most anticipated electronic releases of the year with the upcoming Settle. "You & Me" is the latest single from that record and features Guy and Howard Lawrence giving guest singer Eliza Doolittle a syncopated snare-based beat to sing over. The result is a fantastic piece dance-floor pop and another big win for the U.K. brothers.
Lana Del Rey — Great Gatsby OST
"Young & Beautiful"
If there was ever a movie that begged for a Lana Del Rey song on the soundtrack, Baz Luhrmann's go-for-broke reimagining of the Great Gatsby is certainly it. Aside from the fairly obvious parallels between Gatsby and the real-life Elizabeth Grant, Lana's favorite subject matter of rich and the tragic has never seemed more appropriate.
Savages — Silence Yourself
"Shut Up"
U.K. all-female punk quartet Savages continue to steamroll its way toward world domination. "Silence Yourself" is another great mixture of frenetic guitars, emotive vocals, and outraged lyrics.

SOHN
"Blood Flows"
Alt-R&B newcomer SOHN's "Blood Flows" is beautiful enough, but set to the video work of Italian artist Christian Pitschl the song truly comes to life. What starts slow and melancholy builds toward an epic finale with blissfully glitched-out production work from the London-via-Vienna artist. We can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
Kelis
"Jerk Ribs"
Be warned: If you were expecting another "Milkshake" or "Bossy," this is not it. However if you want a surprisingly sultry track produced by none other than TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, then here you go. Complete with horns and an old-school groove, the track marks brand-new territory for the R&B star, which we're totally okay with if it sounds like this.

Solar Year - Waverly
"Global Girlfriend"
Montreal duo Solar Year uses myriad synths and programmed beats to create moody, often arresting pop meditations. "Global Girlfriend" is a pitch-shifted gem from the band's upcoming vinyl version of its debut album, Waverly.
