Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for a synth and dreamy female vocals. Bonus points for sad lyrics. Young Summer is on my short list. This song (and basically everything she’s put out) is perfection.
Small Black - Canoe
If Two Door Cinema Club, Gypsy & The Cat, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Cut Copy became a supergroup and made an album… it would be a colossal mess. But they’d probably want it sound like Small Black's latest album Limits of Desire. This thing is unbelievably good… beginning to end, no skips.
Goldroom - Adalita (feat. Chela)
It was a longtime coming but the new Goldroom EP is finally out… worth the wait for sure. So pumped for Goldroom & Tesla Boy next week at Le Poisson Rouge.
Discovery - Swing Tree
Can’t believe this album is already four years old. It’s at the same time a sugary sweet, chopped up, re-interpretation of 90’s r&b as well as a half-intentional parody of modern pop production. However you want to label it, I wish these two would take a break from Ra Ra Riot and Vampire Weekend and put together another album.
In love. The one time I won’t be in town, they’ll be at Webster Hall and Williamsburg. Of course.
