    KIRSTEN'S PICKS:

    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"

    Beck finally 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.

    INDIA'S PICKS:

    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.

    CHRIS' PICKS:

    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/house classic.
