Jam of the Day: Rachel Collier - "Paper Tiger"

Banging electro-pop track from Rachael Collier that has a very Santigold vibe to it.

As an added bonus, here is an in-studio live version she did for Abelton, where you can see her build all the loops.

This song has been described as being if James Blake was produced by Jamie xx, and I am completely fine with that. Gorgeous.

Jam of the Day: Zara Larrson - "Funeral"

Zara Larrson sings the hell out of this breakup song, which is about realizing a relationship is not working out and being adult about moving on.

Jam of the Day: Future Islands - "Black Rose"

Future Islands' new record The Far Field has a surfeit of riches. I really could post the entire record as a Jam of the Day, but for brevity's sake I will post the final track on the record, "Black Rose." It's simply a gorgeous mid-tempo track featuring muted synth swells and a driving bass line. And of course, Sam Herring's emotive vocals. Pure bliss. You can hear it here on Spotify.

Jam of the Day: Talos - "Contra"

New single from Eoin French, aka Talos, which is “about the idea of protecting something very fragile in the midst of a crisis, when the walls are falling down around you.” It's a delicate track with evocative lyrics, tender vocals, and cinematic electronics.
