Jam of the Day: LO ft. Elouiz - "Last Call"

Sometimes the DJ is so fucking good you just want to keep dancing, hooking up can wait. This song would keep me on the dance floor too.

Jam of the Day: Sandra Kolstad - "Dance On"

This song from Norwegian pop star Sandra Kolstad revels in taking its time. The first two minutes are a gorgeous, organ-led ambient prologue, moving then to the mid section that is a slow burning meditation, then onto a beat-focus coda. All of this is overseen by Sandra's beautiful voice and poetic lyrics. A true find.

Jam of the Day: The Shins - "Heartworms (Flipped)"

I will admit that I was a little underwhelmed by The Shins' last album Heartworms, which came out early in 2017. It was a decent record, but just felt like James Mercer was spinning his wheels. So imagine my surprise when he announced that he would be releasing a "flipped" version of the album called The Worm's Heart, with slow songs turned into fast songs, and vice versa. Here, the title track went from a loping, country rock like track into this bouncy, synth driven sing-a-long. Here's hoping the flip version of the album is as inventive, off-the-cuff, and quite frankly, fun as this track.

This profanely filthy NSFW song is also the catchiest damn rap you will hear all year, and you will be busting a gut from cupcakKe's hysterical one-liners.
