"Dream And An MPC" - Golden Coast

Son of a beach! Summer anthem from the west [and best] coast. Towels, tequila, fedora, and Ray-Bans not included.

"Sheets" - Shannon Saunders

Sure, Shannon Saunders sounds more like the name of an intrepid girl detective than a rising pop star, but the proof is in the pudding, or rather in the “Sheets.” Besides, if this isn’t a world that can embrace a Nancy Drew / Ellie Goulding amalgam, it’s not a world we care to jam in.

"Say You’ll Be There" - MØ (Spice Girls Cover)

SUNDAY COVERS: MØ Spice. That is all. 

"Blue Veins" - Little Shoes Big Voice

Today’s public service announcement: Emily Harvey has descended from the heavens to bless us plebes with her musical goddess voice. Harps, a cappella intros, and a synth beat … Just what our Saturday morning calls for. 

Reminds us of: Ellie Goulding, Active Child

"Classic" - The Knocks (RAC Mix)

It’s August 21st team. One of us (JuiceBoxDancer) just went back to school. Literally.

Sharpen those pencils y’all, and don’t sleep on summer; it’s fading. 

"Heartbeat" - Alex Winston (FEMME Cover)

Where there’s a will, there’s a Winston. 

Check the original as well - double-down Friday. 

"Papaoutai" - Stromae

For those of you who aren’t fluent French speakers like we are (jk, we had to Google Translate it too), “papaoutai” means “Dad, where are you?” The song references the absence of Stromae’s father, who died during the Rwandan genocide. So sad. 

This may be one of the most beautiful music videos we’ve seen all year. Even without the translation, the message is clear. And the choreography is something we’d hope to see on a [good] ep of So You Think You Can Dance. 

Audio below features a cameo with our favorite New York hip-hopstress Angel Haze. 

"Tension" - Vök

Some days our life feels like an episode of Girls and those days actually suck A LOT because obviously that’s the kind of thing you can’t really share with anyone because it’s basically asking for an eye roll.

We think our emotional ailments will likely be cured by writing one solid to-do list and listening to the angsty but lovely “Tension” on repeat.

And to-do lists. We know. Always the Marnie, never the Jessa.

"Leave Me Alone" - KAYTRANADA

We’ve been following KAYTRANADA ever since his remix of Azealia’s “ATM Jam” … Now, boyfriend has released a track off soon-to-be-released “So Be”; our love only grows stronger. This is real Montreal house music, folks. Someone please find our dancing shoes because we’re going OUT tonight!

"Coffee" - Sylvan Esso

Nothing like a Monday morning cup of coffee.
