Bibio - À tout à l'heure: The hazy psych feel here is the perfect Bibio evolution. Couldn't ask for more.
Bonobo - Cirrus (Dont You Want Me) (Cocolino Edit): Let's just take that Bonobo smoothness and roll it out in to an eternal groove oh yes.
Eleanor Friedberger - Stare At The Sun (Epitonic Saki Session): The Fiery Furnaces troubadour returns with a great live take.
Elephant - Skyscraper: Mininig a touch of surf sentimentality, this is some gloriously satisfying pop.
Fol Chen - A Tourist Town: Fabulous new track from the new album The False Alarms.
Homeboy Sandman - Brown: Hot new ish on Stones Throw mines the Tom Waits percussion for some perfectly muted joints.
Icona Pop vs C2C - Happy To Love It (Fissunix mashup): Ridiculous in concept but oh so precious now that it's here. WHO KNEW WE NEEDED THIS?
NO - Another Life: THIS IS NOT THE NATIONAL. Every review has to state that upfront. I don't really care, I love the National so much I'd love ot have another dead-ringer replacement in case their tour bus explodes.
Pascal Pinon - Bloom
Pascal Pinon - When I Can't Sleep: So much force behind this whispered pop magic! From the new album Twosomeness.
Philip Glass - NYC 73-78 (Beck Remix): This could have been its own EP, all alone. But the surprise entry in the Glass Remixes was too quickly overloked. Here, a giant Beck expanse to just muck around in!
Poludnice vs. Liquid Molly - Dolina, Dolinuszka: Nowadays it's amazing to hear something dubsteppy without a trap roll or brostep drop. SO. DAMN. REFRESHING.
State Lines - Win Free: Sometimes you just need some emo-laden punk pop in your world.
Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - Kindness Be Conceived ft Joanna Newsom: I am loving the new Thao album We The Common and COME ON PEOPLE, JOANNA NEWSOM. Highly recommended.
The Strokes - 80's Comedown Machine: I've never been much of a Strokes fan but I really enjoy this song from the new album Comedown Machine
THEBLKHANDS - In Love ft Kembe X: The XX get ripped over, and while I'm not sure why they weren't credited in the title, the verse on top goes really well.
