Atmosphere – Camera Thief

So much new music! This is the first track off Atmosphere’s new album, Southsiders. A lot of my favorite Atmosphere songs have one hook or one sample that I find mesmerizing. In this case, it’s that muffled guitar/synth sound. I don’t know what makes it, but I can’t get enough. Advertisements

Lykke Li – Gunshot Lykke Li’s much anticipate new album, I Never Learn, came out yesterday. It is super dramatic, dreamy, and beautiful. On first listen, this song is the star. It has a distinct ’80’s Madonna feel, maybe even with a little influence from The The. Really really great.

Jessica Lea Mayfield – Oblivious

And finally, “Oblivious” off of Jessica Lea Mayfield’s incredible new album, Make My Head Sing. I love every song on this album, but this one especially. It’s the first song and it just knocks you on your ass from the start.

The Peach Kings – Hold On

Next, deep bass driven rock from the Peach Kings. Intense and echoing, kind of like Cat Power. Just beautiful.

Little Dragon – Let It Go

I’ve been in a (new music) rut recently, for whatever reason, but in the last day I’ve realized that three of my favorite artists have recently put out music. I’ve been hitting repeat a lot. First, new from Little Dragon. Dreamy electro-pop topped with the beautiful, almost 90’s R&B voice of Yukimi Nagano.

Atmosphere – Bob Seger

Atmosphere – Bob Seger Atmosphere is so dramatic and dark. But/and I really like their sound and have yet to grow tired of it. This one’s newish to the world, new to me.

Hermitude – All Of You

A song to wake your week up. Bits of soul, hip-hop, and funk, all twisted together.
