Title track from These New Puritans' fantastic new fourth album. Their music is almost undefinable; but my best approximation is it sounds like what Talk Talk would have sounded like had they gone down a more electronic/techno side of things after Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock.

American Football return with their third record which features a lot of great collaborations. I really love their use of Slowdive's Rachel Goswell's breathy vocals on the sparkling track "I Can't Feel You."

Flume just released his mixtape Hi This is Flume, and it is a killer mix of new tracks. "MUD" shows off more of his textural side with industrial strength drums and more melted, twisted synths.

Blaqk Audio, the synthpop side project of Davey Havok and Jade Puget of AFI, have released their fourth album Only Things We Love. "Dark Arcades" is a darkly epic track with a killer chorus that recalls the best of 80s goth pop.

From Karen O/Danger Mouse's beguiling collaboration album Lux Prima, "Redeemer" combines swirling strings, pounding drums, and spaghetti-western style guitars, all brought to a perfect mix through Karen O's commanding voice.

Tamaryn began her career as a dark, droning shoegaze act but now has moved full force into sparkling synthpop. "Angels of Sweat" is the latest track from her upcoming album Dreaming the Dark, which sounds like if Kate Bush fronted Erasure. It's pretty mesmerizing.

The Innocence Mission has been around for over 30 years and they never disappoint. This latest song is probably one of their most beautiful. Prepare to be transfixed.

SASAMI, the former keyboardist for Cherry Glazerr, has released a lovely collection of shoegazey pop. One of my favorite songs is this beautiful ode to a relationship that didn't work out but the feelings remain and they want to save the friendship. I love these lyrics, that sums up at lot of personal things for myself:
"One of these nights I'm
Gonna hear your song again, friend
One of these nights I'm
Gonna be your friend again
It's not the time or place for us
But you said that you would save some space for us."

From Aussie singer Julia Jacklin's stunning new record Crushing, "Don't Know How to Keep Loving You" is a stark ballad about a relationship at an impasse.

Four Tet, under the alias KH, takes a sample from Nelly Furtado's track "Afraid" and turns out one of the best dance floor bangers I have heard in a long time.
