• Music Monday: July 7, 2014

    No more Monday morning excuses! Stop staring at the clock and start your work week out right with five hand-picked songs from our music stylist, Corbin, who wants to fill your brainwaves with summer-ready sounds and auditory illusions.

    The Hellen Hollins Singers - Consolation (Nicolas Jaar Edit)
    Well, this is amazing. We're sorry Chile lost, but this edit is out of this world. This is a bit unusual for Jaar since it's a little more straightforward, but we'll take it. 

    Lil Silva - Mabel
    "Mabel" is a great new song from Lil Silva. Coming from his forthcoming Mabel EP, it has a nice SBTRKT RnB/house vibe going on, and the EP will also include vocals from Banks, which is something we're so looking forward to. 

    Eno & Hyde - DBF
    Well, this second Eno & Hyde release is just as impressive as the first one. "DBF" has a stuttering, hip-shaking groove, which we love. It's kind of like a mix between James Brown and Talking Heads. This track really stays moving.

    Naomi Punk - Firehose Face 
    Summer and punk seem to go hand in hand. "Firehose Face" is taken from Naomi Punk's self-titled sophomore release out in August. This is really throwing us back to Wavves "King of the Beach."

    Alex Burkat - Shower Scene
    "Shower Scene" is one of the many great tunes on the new Mister Saturday Night compilation. This one has an eerie but happy mood. Really interesting stuff, and we're assuming it's pulling its name from the water/shower sound, and the fact that it's slightly reminiscent of the Psycho shower scene music.
