Jam of the Day: Kehlani - "Undercover"

I pretty much could put her whole album SweetSexySavage down and it would be fine with me. Really fun, sultry R&B. She's one to watch.

Jam of the Day: ANOHNI - "Paradise"

With the childish cheeto in office there has never been a greater time to resist and protest his policies. ANOHNI is leading the charge with this intense electronic call to arms against ecocide.

Jam of the Day: Real Estate - "Darling"

When the world feels like it is about to spin off its axis, it sometimes helps to sit back and listen to some beautiful music. Real Estate are back with this shimmering and warm single from their upcoming record In Mind. That analog synthesizer feels like a warm bath.

Jam of the Day: The xx - "I Dare You"

The xx's new album I See You opens their sound up without sacrificing what makes them unique. I keep coming back to this stunning track that moves along a simple, steady beat, adding and subtracting instruments at will, with Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sims' voices intertwining in pop perfection.

Jam of the Day: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone - "City of Stars"

The bittersweet heart of the fantastic movie La La Land, "City of Stars" is charming in its simplicity. Gosling and Stone don't have the greatest voices, but what they lack in range and depth, they make up for with emotion and heart.

Jam of the Day: Jacob Bellens - "Untouchable"

Delicate ballad from Danish singer/songwriter Jacob Bellens details a crumbling relationship; Bellen's aching voice standing out over a haunting mix of pianos and strings.

Jam of the Day: The xx - "Say Something Loving"

Gorgeous new track from The xx's upcoming record I See You. There has been a lovely warmth to all the tracks that have been previewed so far, and makes me most eager to hear the rest of the album.
