Jam of the Day: NAVA - "Flesh"

Italian quartet NAVA unleashes strange electronics on the mesmerizing track "Flesh." The music sounds akin to early Skinny Puppy, full of harsh, scraping sounds, but with a mix of beautiful elements. The push and pull between the two are fascinating.

Jam of the Day: Tove Lo - "Shifted"

Sunshine Kitty is one of Tove Lo's best records and one of the best pop records of the year. "Shifted" is a sleek, minimalist electro-pop track with a killer melody.

Jam of the Day: KAZU - "Undo"

Kazu Makino, the former lead singer for Blonde Redhead, has just realized her debut solo album, entitled Adult Baby. It's an enigmatic record, full of strange sounds, and lots of intriguing uses of her voice. "Undo" is both gorgeous and offsetting; using odd backing noises (clicks, whistles, and drones) to keep you off-center. Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier adds cavernous drums to the mix, anchoring the song to the earth.

Jam of the Day: Saint Jude - "Deaf Ears, Blind Years"

I am really drawn to this song from London singer-musician Saint Jude. His almost deadpan vocals seem to be hiding all emotion, until the end, where the emotion almost pours out uncontrollably. He is definitely an artist to watch out for. You can listen to the single here on Spotify.

Percussion-heavy remix of the Björk song "Features Creatures" by The Knife that reimagines the track as lead by a demented marching band.

Jam of the Day: Tove Lo and Kylie Minogue - "Really Don't Like U"

With a collaboration this good, why the hell did Tove Lo and Kylie not do this sooner? From Tove's upcoming album Sunshine Kitty. This song is ripe for killer dance remixes.

Jam of the Day: 808 State - "Marconi"

In advance of their upcoming full-length Transmission Suite, Manchester legends 808 State have released a teaser EP called Subsequent Granada Report. I am really digging the squelchy, acid-house thrills of "Marconi."

Jam of the Day: Apparat - "OUTLIER (Solomun Remix)"

Solomun takes the pastoral electronica of the original version of Apparat's "OUTLIER" and creates a chilled out, deep house version. The spoken word portion at the end is haunting.

Jam of the Day: Tool - "Invincible"

From Tool's epic new record Fear Inoculum, "Invincible" is one of the more atmospheric tracks that steadily builds into a complex, guitar-driven close.
