5 Hot Tracks For Placement

 

ON THE LEVEL
MAC DEMARCO

 

Traveling through a fresh, reeling soundscape, Mac DeMarco ponders family expectations and personal growth with an impenetrable calmness. Woozy basslines, sedated vocal delivery, and that unforgettable siren-like synth line remain true to his signature lazy funk aesthetic. 

 
 
 

TRUTH
KAMASI WASHINGTON

 

Truth is absolutely regal by design. Kamasi Washington delivers a 14-minute big band voyage featuring lyrical tenor sax, elegant string accents, monumental drum fills, tasteful guitar licks, and a grandiose choral arrangement that transmits a world of warmth. Opulence is this jazz cat's middle name. 

 

WANT YOU BACK
HAIM

 

HAIM have returned to rectify a fractured romance on Want You Back. Their unmistakable signature rhythm-driven melodies are the heart of this track, simply upgraded with a sleeker, soulfully polished candy pop treatment. If Wilson Phillips worked at Urban Outfitters, this song would be on their Tumblr. 

 
 
 

BLACK WAVE
K. FLAY

 

Black Wave is a raucous, pretty in punk electro cut, offering equal doses of empowerment, resistance, and attitude. K. Flay's gravelly yet ultra feminine defiance resounds over a frenetic maze of thunderous drums, perilous synths, and glitchy details. 

 

SOMETHING STRANGE
Kingsborough

 

Kingsborough grabs you by the collar and tosses you back into the golden days of traditional rock'n'roll. In your face blues tinged guitar licks, impassioned drumming, and hazy, whiskey dipped vocal effects all contribute to the mysterious intensity of Something Strange.
