Chet Faker - Gold

In both video and song, Chet Faker excels at sultry simplicity. His smokey but fragile voice over the clapping, the serpentine silhouettes of roller girls.

The song is smooth, despite Faker’s Australian roots, he’s obviously inspired by Motown, Bon Iver and R&B. The girls’ (Appleusa McGlynn, April Corley, Candice Heiden) choreography a deliciously and buttery accompaniment to this feel good croon.

Gold is entrancing and perfect for late night listening. 

Get Gold on iTunes today.

p.s. if Faker looks or sounds familiar to you, it might be because his cover of No Diggity went viral awhile back.

Thanks to invincibeard for introducing me to this awesome track.

Midnight Hours by Wunder Wunder

These Californian based Aussies effortlessly pair sun-kissed good vibes with nighttime excitement. Their infectious upbeat track “Midnight Hours” will have you tapping your feet or steering-wheel drumming in no time but there is a heaviness.

And Wunder Wunder reminds us that summer is about shedding our daytime responsibilities, if only for a few minutes. But it’s all bittersweet. We are in the midnight hours of summer. But in 5h3m, we find moments of floating and fleeting freedom where the possibilities are endless. 

Turn it up, let your hair down, and savor the last bits of warm night air like you just snuck out your parents’ house.

Playlist: The Summer of Mustard
Most artists strive to score the song of the summer, but this year DJ Mustard had the whole damn sound. Everywhere you turned, Mustard was on the beat, dominating radio waves with his signature variety of minimalist west coast bangers. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to 2 Chainz, from Iggy Azalea to Drake jumped on a Mustard track, and just about every one was a certified hit. What the Neptunes had in 2004, DJ Mustard has here and now: a ubiquitous sound, and his finger firmly on the music pulse.

#tbt: Can You Tell — Ra Ra Riot

With their debut album, The Rhumb Line, Ra Ra Riot gives us this pleasant ditty. It’s bouncy and breezy, and it’s melancholic percussions mix well with the soft, warm strings of their cello and violin. Not relying too much on synths, their music is melodic and organic. “Can You Tell” builds in a manner similar to how your blood pressure builds when you see that somebody who makes you lose sleep, while the drumbeats imitate the rhythm of your heartbeat when you can’t keep your cool around them.

Today, her witchiness Grimes released the music video for her song Go. With a completely different sound coming off her sophomore album, it’s clear Grimes is uninterested in your boxed categorizations.

Grimes said the video is inspired by Korn’s “Freak on a Leash” and that a lot of the imagery represents modern-day equivalents of Dante’s circles as hell.

Is there anything this girl can’t do? This song plays hopscotch along genres, from electronica to dream pop dubstep. It’s all Grimes.

"Go" was originally written for a collaboration with Rhianna which makes Grimes performance even more entrancing.
