December isn't known as a time for new music. Writers are wrapping up their year-end lists and musicians, like the rest of us, tend to take it easy in light of the holidays. So, it comes as a pleasant surprise that this week has so many new, quality tunes. We've got tracks from St. Vincent, a debut single from EMA's sophomore record, and an odd (but awesome) HAIM remix. There's also a new collaboration with Chance the Rapper and Justin Bieber that's actually...quite good. And, Burial's latest EP, Rival Dealer, just got dropped out of nowhere and is blowing our minds.
Back in 2011, EMA released the fantastic Past Life Martyred Saints. "Satellites" is the first taste off her new record, The Future’s Void, set to drop early next year. Featuring compressed guitars and an industrial thump, the track is as intense and awesome as an ardent admirer could hope for.
"Forever (Giorgio Moroder Remix)"
One of the more unusual remixes of the year comes to us via the L.A. pop group, HAIM, and the legendary producer, Giorgio Moroder. True to form, Moroder employs synth arpeggiators and roboticized vocals for a driving disco track.
