LCD Soundsystem, "All My Friends"
This is my favorite LCD Soundsystem song, by a fair ways, as the melancholy mood and nostalgic lens here is just kind of irresistable. And that piano, this is just such a damn jam. Please enjoy.
Trans Am, "Diabolical Cracker"
Is this, like, a sulferic Wheat Thin? Or just, you know, a cop?
The Streets, "Never Give In"
The Streets should be, maybe even are, the corniest act ever. But they're saved by a core of sincerity at the heart of things which let them bypass all the corniness. It's a high-wire act in the extreme, to be sure, and the vast majority of people who tried this sort of thing would sound awful. But he sticks the landing.
Rex Williams, "You Are My Heart"
This track comes to us from the Nigeria 70: Lagos Jump comp, which rules. Honestly, this day has rocked, I don't want to curse it by writing too much here.
The Du-Rites, "Bay B. MoMa"
Yes, a single about the museum. No, it doesn't make any sense, but it's absolutely savage funk, so whatever. Hell yeah, good shit today.
