Music Monday: February 10, 2014

Our Music Monday post is totally special this week, because we've got an exclusive track to premiere from White Rainbow titled "Be the Dancer, Be the Dreamer." After grooving to that one, make sure to check out our other favorites from this week, too. Corbin

White Rainbow - Be the Dancer, Be the Dreamer

Here's our exclusive premiere! White Rainbow has released countless albums, and his upcoming album THRU. U is full of killer trap-influenced and washed out RnB/indie sounds. This track "Be the Dancer, Be the Dreamer" is a wonderful seven minutes of bounce and layers. There isn't a dull moment between the vocal loop and dreaming swirling synths. You can purchase THRU. U on Bandcamp digitally and on vinyl.

Jamie XX & Four Tet - Seesaw
Reading the title of this should be a clear indication of the quality level of this collab. "Seesaw" is a deep, bumpy movement, tied together with gorgeous Burial-esque vocals. This is an unreleased rip, and we're really looking forward to the official release in March. Let this one take you away. 

Windy & Carl - I Walked Alone
This slowed down dreamer is reminiscent of the glo-fi tracks from 2012. And it also reminds me of Nico. There's a lot of Nico vibes in here. Somber but still uplifting.

Giraffage - Nikki She Needs My Love (The Dream)
Giraffage decided to remix the entire Love Hate album by The Dream. This one is full of club-ready bangers, and it's a good summary of the remix album. At a time when Rnb Trap is under slight fire because of its massive presence in underground and Top 40 alike, this is a nice reminder of why it is where it is.

Yumi Zouma - The Brae
Here's a wonderful indie chiller to stay warm this Monday morning.
