This week's jams are steamy, sexy, and distinctively dancey. We start things off with a standout cut from L.A.-based up-and-comer Kelela, an awesome new track from Arcade Fire (album of the year?), and a bubbly pop song from Malaysian-born songstress Yuna. Then it's M.I.A.'s eternal-recurrence-inversion of Drake's infamous motto, a mind-warping remix from Rustie, and a steamy new video from Flume that's just barely SFW. Take a look!

Kelela
"Go All Night"
L.A.-based experimental pop artist Kalela is one of this year's true breakout artist. "Go All Night" is a super-sexy cut from her recent Cut 4 Me mixtape with strong '90s R&B vibes.
Arcade Fire
"Afterlife"
Reflektor is shaping up to be the best Arcade Fire album since the band's debut. "Afterlife" is a New Wave-y track with just the right amount of melancholy under its pop veneer.
Yuna
"Colors"
Fans of Lykke Li should find sympathetic sounds with Yuna. "Colors" is a buoyant piece of pop from an artist we expect big things from in the future.

M.I.A.
"Y.A.L.A."
Taking the well-worn sentiment from Drake's "The Motto" and inverting it, M.I.A. has recast YOLO as "You always live again." It's a sentiment that should please both Buddhists and fans of spiky electro pop.
Pusha T feat. Tyler the Creator
"Trouble On My Mind (Rustie Remix)"
Rustie continues his reign as the current king of remixes. This time, it's a wobbly refix of Pusha T's "Trouble On My Mind" that may be even better than the original.

Disclosure
"You and Me (Flume Remix)"
Though Australian producer Flume dropped this remix of Disclosure earlier this summer, the excellent track is now accompanied by a steamy video of two young attractive people making out. Not a bad thing. It's a great track, so any chance to relisten is okay with us.
