Jam of the Day: Spoon - "Can I Sit Next to You?"

I am loving this new, funkier sound that Spoon is going for on their latest singles. This new one hits a minimal groove early, but the song quietly morphs into something more complex. This makes me super excited for their upcoming record.

Jam of the Day: Clock Opera - "When We Disappear"

Haunting song from Clock Opera's new record Venn. It's a stunning rumination on death and whether we leave a mark on this world. You can listen to it here on Spotify.

"Oh tell me will there be no witness
No ripples on the surface
When we disappear

Oh are we obsolete and beaten
Is history repeating
that ringing in your ears."

Jam of the Day: Fractures - "Swallow"

There is a haunting, Radiohead-like quality to this track from Fractures, with the song steadily building from its hush-toned piano opening.

Jam of the Day: Sampha - "Under"

Totally addicted to this record. I am trying not to post every song on here, but it is almost impossible. The different textures of this track are so enticing, I had to post it on here. Again, Process is an album you must own this year. "Under" can be heard here on Spotify.

Jam of the Day: Future Islands - "Ran"

I just can't with this country anymore. I sure wish I could run, but I will stay and resist. I'll let Future Islands' new single be my runner for the moment. It's a killer track.

Jam of the Day: Sampha - "Blood on Me"

If you aren't listening to Sampha's debut album Process, you are truly missing out on one of the best records so far this year. "Blood on Me" is a harrowing track, showcasing Sampha's vocal range.

Jam of the Day: Porcelain Raft - "Rising"

Two weeks into this already horrific Trump presidency, I find myself retreating more and more into music as a way to see the beauty in the world. "Rising," a meditative track off Porcelain Raft's new record Microclimate, soothes with its haunting piano, strings, guitar drones, and the aching vocals of Mauro Remiddi.
