Today's This Is Our Jam roundup features new acts, old favorites, and two pleasant collaborations. We start things off with a fuzzed-out anthem from Perfect Pussy and a new-old song by Kurt Vile. Then, it's an unheard team-up courtesy of Burial and Four Tet, Danny Brown's wild new video, and a danceable jam from Brooklyn's Motion Studies. Last, we chill out with a new track from D.C. duo GEMS.

Perfect Pussy
"I"
Subtlety is not Perfect Pussy's strength, and that's just fine with us. "I" comes straight out of the gate with ripping guitar, roaring lyrics, and enough fuzz to knit a sweater. Righteous.
Kurt Vile & Sore Eros
“Serum”
While we've still got Vile's Wakin on a Pretty Daze LP on heavy rotation, it's always nice to hear something new from the the man. "Serum" is a lilting collab with ex-Violator Robert Robinson from earlier in the artist's career. It's quite beautiful.
Burial & Four Tet
"Untitled"
Anything new from Burial gets treated like a big event in the electronic music world — and for good reason. "Untitled" is an unreleased collaboration between the producer and Four Tet that contains the darkness and depth that we've come to expect when the two work together.

Danny Brown
"Dope Song"
Danny Brown just dropped his new album, Old, and it is very good. Along with it, he's got some new visuals for "Dope Song" that have the rapper spitting through tripped-out psychedelic filters. It's all very Danny Brown in the best way possible.
Motion Studies
"Matter of Time"
Synth-pop artist Tyler McCauley just dropped two new tracks via Brooklyn label God Mode. "Matter of Time" is a danceable cut that gains steam as it moves along, with DFA-inspired production from Andrew Raposo of Midnight Magic.

GEMS
"Medusa"
D.C.-based duo GEMS make dreamy pop in the vein of The xx. "Medusa" is the latest cut from the band's upcoming record and sees Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts trading vocal takes over cavernous guitar.
