St. Vincent - "Smoking Section"
This is the last track on St. Vincent's brand new album Masseduction
(spoiler alert?) and it is so sad, but so good.
Beck - "Colors"
released his new album Colors
and it's all so upbeat and fun - especially the title track.
King Krule - "Dum Surfer"
King Krule just released his new album The Ooz
and it's his best yet. If you're not listening to it, you're not having fun.
St. Vincent - "Sugarboy"
St. Vincent is actually making us dance with "Sugarboy". It's dark, and slightly uncomfortable, but it's St. Vincent, so I love it. About halfway through the song, she clearly sneaks in the same guitar chords from "Los Ageless", which adds a pleasant surprise. "Sugarboy" is definitely being added to my workout playlist.
Jamila Woods - "Bubbles"
I adore Jamila Woods' voice so much. It's honest, it's raw, and it's super soulful. "Bubbles" grows from a mellow a capella tune to a beautifully layered R&B/pop track. If you haven't heard it already, I highly recommend listening to this uplifting song.
Morgan Saint - "You"
This song showed up on my Discover Weekly on Spotify this week and ironically enough, Morgan Saint is playing at our Bands + Brews event at 5 pm tomorrow! In "You", Morgan Saint's voice is gorgeously places among a light pop track. I can listen to this song over and over. Luckily I can hear it live tomorrow! RSVP here
for the free show.
Cold Cave - "Confetti"
Irresistibly danceable, utterly cathartic and tinged with a touch of melancholic introspection, I've probably done irreversible damage to my eardrums listening to this song on full volume. Can't say I regret it at all though.
Black Marble - "On My Head"
Don't get me wrong, Black Marble's It's Immaterial
is a terrific album, but their earlier EP Weight Against the Door
is just such a masterful blend of synth-wave and gloomy post-punk, and "On My Head" is perfect in every way.
Martha Wash - "I Don't Know Anybody Else"
So technically the song is by Black Box, as Martha Wash's name doesn't appear in the credits, but it's one-hundred-percent her song. Wash is without a doubt the most powerful singer I've ever heard, and this song is an essential dance/
