Secondhand Rapture - MS MR

Here's a stream of MSMR's upcoming debut album, Secondhand Rapture.  No real surprise in the sound of the album, most of it is in the same dark, poppy vein as their Candy Bar Creep Show EP.  It's definitely not bad though.  This is the sort of music I would do housework to I think.  I'm listening to it now and I'm packing.  Give it a listen, it's not too shabby.  If you're only going to check out one song on here, excluding the previously released material, I have to say I'm most partial to "Head Is Not My Home."

"You & I" - Crystal Fighters

A wonderfully bouncy tune.  Summoning summer and spring from where ever they had been hiding.

"Closure" - Owl Eyes (Giraffage Remix)

Oh my.  The sonic goodness.  Giraffage.  From the beats, to the samples, to the snares, just so near perfection (absolutes are a no-no in my book).  Ranging from wonderfully downtempo, to perfectly glitchy 'chorus' sections.  Just a joy to listen to.  One of those tracks that just transports you.

"Rolling Stone" - The Weeknd (Truth Remix)

Heard this for the first time just today, and I'm hooked.  Wonderfully mesmerizing.  The rising and sinking sensations... Makes me feel like I'm floating just beneath the surface of an perfectly calm, perfectly clear lake.

"Sleeping Ute" - Grizzly Bear (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

After a hiatus, Nicolas Jaar is back.  Check out this amazing track.  It's an experience.

"Trying To Be Cool" - Phoenix

Just take a step back and listen..  Phoenix are really masters of the pop craft.  Mars' voice is just so perfect for the symphony of synths and sounds that Phoenix just love to use.

"Farther" - Vacationer

Vacationer, perfect for relaxation.  Check out their new video.  It's really just majestically beautiful.
