The Chromatics — Kill for Love
"Back From the Grave" [MP3]
It was hard to pick one track from The Chromatics' new record — it's pretty much the best thing we've heard all year. Buy this album.
Beck — I Only Have Eyes For You
"I Only Have Eyes for You (Cover)" [MP3]
This surprisingly faithful rendition of The Flamingos' doo-wop classic (one of the greatest songs ever recorded) finds Beck in full-on crooner mode.
Here We Go Magic — A Different Ship
"Over the Ocean" [MP3]
Sometimes it's good to keep things simple. This track from Here We Go Magic's latest is just a loping and ethereal groover with excellent vocals. Buy this album.
Nicolas Jaar — Wouh
Moody, slo-mo techno from a Brown comp-lit major. Could go either way on paper, but in practice, it's gorgeous and inspiring. Buy this album.
Nite Jewel — One Second of Love
"One Second of Love" [MP3]
Nite Jewel has traded in murky lo-fi dance music for sharp '80s-style synth-pop on her newest album. We didn't see it coming but she has successfully made the transition from weird outsider to legitimate pop force. Buy this album.
Tanlines — Mixed Emotions
This is the single on Tanlines' excellent debut full-length record, full of inspirational dance jams that impress us more and more with each listen. Buy this album.
Chairlift — Something
"Met Before" [MP3]
We have to admit that we sort of slept on Chairlift when we first heard about them a few years ago, but we absolutely love how aggressive and brutal they sound on this single. Buy this album.
