Jam of the Day: Foals - "Exits"

Foals are back with this funky, lurching track that leans heavily on a lean bass line and anthemic keyboards. A welcome return.

Jam of the Day: Toro y Moi - "Laws of the Universe"

So what? I can post as many songs from Outer Peace that I want. If this song doesn't make your booty shake involuntarily, I don't have any need to be your friend.

Jam of the Day: HÆLOS - "Kyoto"

HÆLOS returns with their sophomore record Any Random Kindness. "Kyoto" is our second taste from the album, with the single "Buried in the Sand" coming out last year. "Kyoto" shows the band still drawing from the trip-hop well, but adding more intricate grooves and lusher sound.

Milk & Bone, the Canadian electro-pop duo consisting of Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin, dive into darker, FKA Twigs territory on the sinister and sleek track "Trust."

Jam of the Day: The Twilight Sad - "VTr"

On their breathtakingly good new album It Won/t Be Like This All The Time, The Twilight Sad expertly marry their shoegaze beginnings with the thunderous rush of their goth fore bearers The Cure. Honestly, I could put all the songs here as there is not a weak song on the album. Right now though "VTr" keeps popping up in my head. Its propulsive drums, roaring guitars, and synth flourishes are intoxicating.

Jam of the Day: Blaqk Audio - "The Viles"

AFI musicians Davey Havok and Jade Puget are set to release their fourth record Only Things We Love under their Blaqk Audio project name. If you like retro industrial synthpop like Nitzer Ebb and Front 242 you will pretty much love this. "The Viles" is the first single off the record and it is a banger.

Jam of the Day: Vasser - "Nearby"

If you are enamored of the work of James Blake, you will immediately fall for the songs of twenty year old singer/songwriter/producer Vasser. He creates lush worlds with his music, and his malleable voice has a wide range. "Nearby" is a striking track from his self-titled EP. You can listen to it here.

Jam of the Day: Tirzah - "Do You Know"

Tirzah's album Devotion slipped through the cracks last year for me. If I had heard it last year it would have been a fave. Better late than never, I suppose. I really love this trip-hop flavored track.

Jam of the Day: LissA - "Circus"

German singer LissA teams up with producer 89516 on this dreamy, chill future R&B track. Just give in to its languid charms.

Jam of the Day: Kilo Kish - "Like Honey"

Kilo Kish harnesses the menace and dread of Mezzanine-era Massive Attack on this track from her EP mothe.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Jam of the Day: DUVV - "Was You"

Trinidadian-American singer/producer DUVV drops her latest single "Was You" from her EP Acid. The self-produced song is about going to the club to dance and escaping your problems, but only being reminded of them in every corner. It's like a darker version of Robyn's "Dancing On My Own."

Jam of the Day: Suicideyear - "Lousser"

James Richard Prudhomme, who works under the moniker Suicideyear, releases his latest single "Lousser," which starts softly with trap beats and twinkling synths before taking a darker turn with a sinister bassline.

Jam of the Day: Zayn - "Flight of the Stars"

The former One Direction member has just released his second solo album, the 27 track opus Icarus Falls. It's a pretty brilliant pop record, showing more maturity and willingness to try new genres and sounds. "Flight of the Stars" is a haunting ballad that focuses on his lush voice and minimal production.
