Jam of the Day: Drab Majesty - "Oxytocin"

Pulling their sound from acts like The Cure and Clan of Xymox, goth-inspired LA duo Drab Majesty transcend their influences on their new album Modern Mirror. "Oxytocin" is all swoony synths and chiming guitars, and is quite sublime.

Jam of the Day: Husky Loops - "Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me"

Italian born, but London based trio, Husky Loops throws down this sleek, drum heavy track from their upcoming debut album I CAN'T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH. The video is a nod to The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony." I am looking forward to more from them.

UK youngsters black midi have a wild assortment of influences, none of which they are afraid to throw together in the mix. "953" from their debut record Schlagenheim is an everything but the kitchen sink concoction that throws in prog, punk, math rock, Fall-like vocals, and undeniable energy. They are a band to watch for sure. You can listen to "953" here on Spotify.
