Jam of the Day: Sleigh Bells - "Loyal For"

Four albums in and Sleigh Bells still find ways to tinker with their sound. While Jessica Rabbit is not their most consistent record, it has lots of killer moments on it, including this stunning track.

Jam of the Day: The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk - "I Feel It Coming"

On paper, it just doesn't seem like The Weeknd and Daft Punk would make for a good collaboration, however, the two songs I have heard so far are surprisingly great. I especially like this relatively low-key track, that has a sweet melody. You can hear it on Spotify.

Jam of the Day: Sylvan Esso - "Kick Jump Twist"

New music from one of my new favs, Sylvan Esso. I am really excited for their new album to come out, whenever that will be. "Kick Jump Twist" is another twitchy, infectious synth pop track that plays to their strengths.

Jam of the Day: The xx - "On Hold"

First single from The xx's upcoming third album I See You. You can definitely tell that Jamie xx is now pretty much calling the shots musically. I love use of a sample from “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)," from Hall & Oates.

I really like this mournful track from Danish brother-sister duo Saint Cava. I know it is from 2014, but I only recently discovered them. Check out their amazing EP Bliss. I am eagerly awaiting more material from them.

Jam of the Day: Tinashe - "Ghetto Boy"

Gorgeous closing ballad to Tinashe's new mixtape Nightride. She is definitely taking over the throne left empty by Aaliyah.

This slamming track from JAILO² has me dancing all around my office. Of course, I have glass walls, and everyone thinks I am nuts.
