1. The Vaccines – “Do You Want a Man? (John Hill & Rich Costey Remix)”
This is a little gem of pop-rock perfectly completed with watery basslines flying all over the place.
2. Autre Ne Veut – “Play By Play”
Extremely well produced and poignant R&B. What’s not to like?
3. Mikky Ekko – “Pull Me Down”
Mikky Ekko is very close to breaking out into the mainstream. This is his first big single, but you might recognize him from the song, “Stay”, which he wrote for Rihanna.
4. Volcano Choir – “Byegone”
Justin Vernon (from Bon Iver) is involved. So, its good.
5. FKA Twigs – “Water Me’
Production straight out of the 22nd century, and a weirdly interesting video. Neo R&B at its finest.
6. Phoenix – “Bourgeois”
A great, energetic synth rock ballad.
7. Jai Paul – “All Night”
Great slow jam.
8. Daft Punk – “Instant Crush”
Obviously, “Get Lucky” gets all the attention from their newest album, but “Instant Crush” is a great track as well, though less dance-y.
9. Ryan Hemsworth – “Perfectly”
A very pleasant 3 and a half minutes, that seems to stick in my head all the time.
10. Shlohmo – ” Later”
One of my favorite electronic music songs of recent memory.
