This week, we're coming at you with a boatload of synths and some fantastic beats. Along with new tracks from Poliça, FKA twigs, and Clams Casino, Sky Ferreira's new single shows her in full-on pop-star mode, and a remix by Sleigh Bells renders a Phoenix track nearly unrecognizable (but in a good way). Get your fog machines warmed up.

Poliça
"Smug"
Minnesota's best synth-pop export, Poliça is about to release its new album, Shulamith, and we couldn't be more excited. "Smug" is a one of the darker cuts from the album, with Channy Leaneagh's powerful vocals playing the starring role.
FKA twigs
"Ultraviolet"
Another week, another FKA twigs track. But, if it seems like we've posted her entire new EP2 on here, it's because it's just that good.
Sky Ferreira
"You're Not The One"
Tabloid fodder aside, Sky Ferreira is finally growing into the pop star she's always been meant to be. "You're Not The One" takes a page from Cyndi Lauper in the best way possible, with a huge chorus and a slick '80s-inspired video.

Phoenix
"Chloroform (Sleigh Bells remix)"
The term "remix" can be used a lot of ways. For Sleigh Bells' take on Phoenix's "Chloroform," it means a rework of the song complete with the addition of Alexis Krauss' elfin vocals and adding a new array of jacked-up beats to the track. "Reimagining" is probably more apt a term.
Clams Casino
"Crystals"
The Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack just keeps on giving. Last week we posted about a brand-new Twin Shadow track, and now we have this woozy instrumental piece of hip-hop from Clams Casino. It's just a shame that A$AP Rocky isn't rapping over it.
