Jam of the Day: Holly Herndon - "Interference"


Avant garde techno from musician Holly Herndon, who manipulates her voice and samples it back into intriguing patterns and forms. "Interference," off her excellent record Platform, is actually a fairly easy entry into her aesthetic.

Jam of the Day: Eves the Behavior - "Electrical"


If there is any justice in this world, Eves the Behavior should be huge. After skyscraping pop tracks like "Zen" and "TV," she just keeps getting better, as with her latest track "Electrical," an arena ready ballad that builds and builds to a massive chorus.

I am loving this head rush of a track from Brighton quartet Tall Ships.

Jam of the Day: Best Coast - "California Nights"


I absolutely adore this swirly, shoegazey title track from Best Coast's latest record. It's been said it sounds like Sheryl Crow fronting Ride and I can see that. It's wonderful.

Happy 30th Anniversary: New Order - Low Life


Happy 30th Anniversary to probably my overall favorite New Order album.

Jam of the Day: Ciara ft. Joe Jonas - "I Bet"


Gorgeous ballad from my girl Ciara. I actually like this version with Joe Jonas better than the single version. Their voices really compliment one another. This song is featured on the Deluxe Version of Ciara's upcoming record Jackie.

Jam of the Day: Stonefox - "This City"


Beautiful pop track from Melbourne, Australia three-piece Stonefox which sounds like a springier track from The xx.

You will need a very strong stomach to watch this disgusting clip from HEALTH.
