"Good As New" - Vacationer

Here's to the New Year leaving you feeling refreshed and Good As New.  This debut LP was an integral part of my summer soundtrack, keeping my mind in a tropical paradise when my body was trapped in a sweltering concrete jungle.  Wishing you the best of new years, Safe & Sound.

"Lying Together" - FKJ

How did this even happen?! If you go on his sound cloud FKJ sounds more like Nu-disco Funk, but this track says something completely different.

"Leave it all Behind" - STRFKR

Here's a track released by Starfucker (STRFKR), an electronic indie band from Oregon.  It's right off their forthcoming album Miracle Mile, set to be released February 19, 2013.  Give it a listen.  It's quite a tantalizing preview of the album. If it's anything like their previous ones, will be a joy to listen to and an excellent record.

"Your Words Matter" - Ramadanman & Midland

"Sweet Pompeii" - B∆STILLE

Seems like there's only good stuff coming out of the UK right now.  Give B∆STILLE a listen.

"Dirty Magazines" - Wildabeast ft. Jenny Mayhem

Hey hey, yet another chill track, fresh out of Philly.  So smooth, it goes down easy.  Enjoy as you lean back, maybe read a dirty magazine.

"Take It Back" - Solidisco

You'll come to learn that my favorite label out there is Fool's Gold simply because of the diversity of music that comes through that label!
Enjoy this Nu-Disco track by solidisco (good name btw)!

"Zdarlight" - Digitalism (Chopstick & JohnJon Remix)

"The Little White Duck" - Boogie Belgique

If you're looking for the soundtrack to a laid-back afternoon, this is an essential.  "The Little White Duck," a track off of Boogie Belgique's LP Blueberry Hill, released earlier this year, masterfully samples Burl Ives to deliver a well balanced dose of chill.  It's always nice when today's artist pay homage to those of the past, something this track does beautifully.  The track is a tribute to Broadway performer and actor Danny Kaye.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the LP.

"The National Health" - Girls On Drugs

This guy is chill.  Luke Lount is from the UK.  Releasing tracks as Girls On Drugs, he has a few really catchy tunes.  Give it a listen, it won't disappoint.  If you're a fan, consider supporting the artist, he's got an EP out called I Am A Luvr, featuring a pretty awesome remix of Alt-J's "Breezeblocks," which is also on his Soundcloud.

"Hurricane" - MSMR (Twin Shadow Remix)

MS MR's single "Hurricane" dropped along with the Candy Bar Creep Show EP, attracting attention by listeners and remixers alike.  Twin Shadow, fresh off the release of his second album, Confess, works this remix and does not disappoint.
