"Speak My Piece" - Common

It may not be the 90s anymore, but everyone should still be listening to Common, and here’s why (other than the #beardporn):

"Netzwerk" - Klangkarussell

With all the hype surrounding this Austrian duo’s newly released album Netzwerk, we felt it appropriate to post our favorite Klang track. You might recognize the hook from the popular single version "Feels Like Rain". But in our opinion, no vocals are necessary; we’re going instrumental.

Listen to all 6:10 of this deep house gloriousness because it gets better and better, minute by minute (hint: guitar solos, African chants). Worth it. Promise. 

"Down And Out" - The Griswolds

Anthem Alert. Sound the warpaint sirens.

"SECRET" - Chelsea Lankes

Nine months ago we obsessively listened to “Ghost” on repeat, but shamefully never posted. It happens. But LA-based Chelsea Lankes is back with a total “pop!” smasher, so we’re making up for it now. This one might hit the radio, folks. 

"Don’t You Find" - Jamie T

Today we’re fighting through an inconvenient and unexpected mid-week hangover to bring you “Don’t You Find,” Jamie T’s new mellow jello of a jam.

Safe to say Jamie’s more less back “in the game” with this little ditty wouldn’t you agree?

"Don’t Tell" - Mansions On The Moon

Since we’re currently vacationing in LA (hello, Angelenos!), it felt appropriate to post this MOTM, home-cooked jam for your Monday. Now excuse us while we get back to our yoga and kale juice. 

"Glorious" - Foxes (Great Good Fine Ok Remix)

All hail Foxes, Princess of Pop and Queen of Spider Lashes.

"Pstereo" - Emilie Nicolas

Meet our latest obsession, Emilie Nicolas — a.k.a. Norwegian popstress extraordinaire. Like all our fav Scando artists, Emilie has perfected the art of electro pop … Which leave us wondering, yet again, what the eff is in the water over there? Because we want some. 

Sounds like: Robyn, Niki & The Dove, NONONO

"Drinkin’" - Holly Williams

Yesterday we drove from Fresno to LA, and our crackpot of a car insisted on exclusively tuning into the local country music radio station. As a result, we were introduced to this Holly Williams tune, which speaks to the heart real good. My god, we had forgotten how good country / folk music can be (Dixie Chicks, say what?!). Hop on board, y’all. 

"Don’t Wanna Dance" - MØ (Goldroom Remix)

Sorry, dearest readers … We took a break last week to take care of some personal ish (#crosscountrymoves) and barely had time to post new tunes (#somanyboxes). So while we catch up on all of the newest musical releases — a.k.a. the Wish I Was Here soundtrack — we bring you this Goldroom remix, which is most definitely NOT new, but has aged deliciously well since its initial release back in April.
