This week, we bring you the best in experimental R&B, indie pop, psych-rock, and more. We kick things off with a new track from Saint Pepsi, then it's the latest from Austin's Pure X, a collaboration between Shlohmo and Jeremih, and a remix of Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" featuring a particularly, um, virile-sounding Kanye West. Then it's off to a new release from Frankie Cosmos and a fantastic cut from GODMODE's excellent Valentine's Day mixtape (hey, it's never too late for love!). Grab your headphones and check them out.
Saint Pepsi
"Baby"
We've mentioned Saint Pepsi as one of our favorite up-and-coming producers before, and he continues to impress with each new release. "Baby," the latest taste off his debut album, Gin City, takes a track by K-Pop act 4Men and warps it into an introspective piece of left-field pop.
Pure X
"Starlight"
Austin psych band Pure X is readying its new album, Angel, and "Starlight" is the first single. Featuring spaced-out guitars and bummed-out vocals, it's a gorgeous stoner jam by one of our favorite Texas exports.
Shlohmo & Jeremih
"No More"
R&B singer Jeremih and experimental producer Shlohmo may seem like an unlikely match, but "No More" proves it's also a prescient one. Shlohmo's off-kilter producer buoys Jeremih's buttery croon for one of the year's best R&B releases so far.
Beyoncé
"Drunk In Love (Remix) (feat. Jay Z and Kanye West)"
With Valentine's Day being last week, there's been a predictable cavalcade of "Drunk In Love" remixes. Though there's a few decent ones, our favorite has to be this official re-edit featuring Kanye West. It's as pornographic as it is romantic. Awww...swoon!
Frankie Cosmos
"Birthday Song"
Frankie Cosmos (a.k.a. Greta Kline) makes indie pop that should easily please fans of '80s twee, The Moldy Peaches, and Calvin Johnson. "Birthday Song" is a sweet little ditty that's over before you know it, which means you'll just have to play it again.
Shamir
"If It Wasn't True"
Last week, Brooklyn's GODMODE dropped a fantastic anti-Valentines Day mixtape titled Common Interests Were Not Enough To Keep Us Together. Featuring sounds ranging from noise rock to experimental pop, the comp included new tracks from bands like Yvette, The Flag, Mr. Dream, Soft Lit, and more. One particular standout (among many) was Shamir's "If It Wasn't True" — a low-key dance track that becomes surprisingly addictive. Take a listen.
