"New Dorp, New York" by SBTRKT ft. Ezra Koenig (of Vampire Weekend)

Heard this a few days ago and it’s definitely interesting…

vimeo:

Alt-J fans in particular will love this stirring and atmospheric story of young love, scored by the band members Joe Newman & Gus Unger-Hamilton.

Great, well-written list. Got a lot of music to listen to now!

"Do It Again" by Robyn & Röyksopp 

video: Rae Morris - Cold (feat. Fryars)

disconaivete:

Rae Morris and Fryars offer the most depressed but beautiful love song you’ll hear all year with Cold, which now has a perfectly synchronized video too. It’s all love gone wrong in the song with lyrics like “your hips never wave when you walk” and “your voice isn’t kind when you talk” - the heavily auto tuned part of Fryars in Cold perhaps presents the cold distance that can come between two former lovers and contrasts perfectly with Rae Morris’ high voice.

"The Big Unknown" by Elder Island

A major obsession of mine at the moment. It’s got a nice funkiness to it, but it’s pretty, too. Love the combined male and female vocals as well.

New Music: Left Hand Free by alt-J

Challenged by their label to produce a sellable single, the indie darlings take a left turn into blues rock with their latest track, from upcoming album This Is All Yours. 

It’ll be interesting to see how committed alt-J is to this new musical direction, if at all, once the record hits shelves September 22nd. For now, check out their new single here, or packaged as a free download with the album pre-order on iTunes

Check out this mix on @8tracks: Music For The Musically Challenged’s 4th Of July Mix by nikitar.

"Wimbeldon" by Rich White Ladies

These ladies are hilarious. Same musicians behind “ONE PERCENT.

"Fuck The Summer Up" by Leikeli47

If you’re looking to go hard this summer, then this should be your theme song. (via papermagazine)
