Air Zaïre - All For You: Summer will never die with the bouncing pop omg steel drum!
Balmorhea - Days: I have a love for this organic instrumental electronica stuff, ala the early days of Tortoise. From the album Stranger.
Budo + Hollis - Open (Rhye cover): Create take on the original which is one of those songs where you probably should never try at karaoke.
Fatso - Clocks Inside ft Chris Martin: A puzzle-piece of a song, just begging to be hooked in to an electropop set.
Hydraulix - From The Bottom (Salva Remix): From the bottom of the "From The Bottom" EP
Joey Bada$$ - Hillary $wank: $wank is something we can all get behind.
Kastle - Stay Forever VIP: If someone asks you to Stay Forever, chances are they are ghost and therefore awesome. Hug that ghost.
Lonnie Holley - Looking for All (All Rendered Truth): THIS IS THE SINGLE OF THE YEAR, HOLY SHIT EVERYONE STOP MAKING ART NOW AND SPEND TIME WITH THIS.
Marian Hill - Whisky: Starts off with some classic soulclapping, but the chopped vox push it up to a next level direction.
Shlohmo - Don't Say No ft How To Dress Well: Yesss let's get this kid on all the sexy hot beats thank you.
Talk Normal - Lone General
Talk Normal - XO: Sunshine is a sleeper album hit from 2012 and OMG how much do I love this band? They are the perfect synthesis of Kim Gordon-fronted Sonic Youth with Laurie Anderson meditativeness. Highly recommended.
Team Wild - Eugene: Blistering charge of amazing rock from the album Taekwondo.
The Walkmen - Weight On My Shoulders: My highlight from the Lisbon b-sides album.
Tokimonsta - Go With It (CRNKN Remix): Super smooth pop bass goodness.
Tuesday Born - Wake ft Dnae: More new soulful smoothness.
Tycho - Adrift: Channelling their best BOC synths, from 2011's Dive.
Zomes - Loveful Heights: No idea what is going on here, but this piece from Time Was is jaw-dropping.
