Should you turn a gloriously happy song into an urgent percussion filled electro synth track? Yes, when it sounds like this. Pacific Air completely transforms Magic Man’s “Paris” and it just works.

This is a bit good isn’t it?
Like “Home”, this one has that ambling collective quality that makes you want to get up and join this crazy gang and go off on adventures, clapping and singing all the way.
“Better Days” is from the upcoming new album, due worldwide July 29th.
With only one release so far, the fantastic “Wings”, HAERTS have managed to get signed to Neon Gold/Columbia and gain quite the following on the blog circuit. Now they’ve released their follow up and its more of the same excellent dreamscape synth pop with a glorious breakdown in the middle.
Just sit back and let it happen.
Oh, when Jessie Ware comes in…amazing.
At The xx’s “Day + Night+ festival in Berlin, they started off performing a cover of Modjo’s eraly 00s dance hit “Lady” over a Jamie xx remix beat and then Jessie Ware arrived to deliver that irresistible hook from Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You”.
Studio version please.

When I first the snippet of new Kanye song “New Slaves” I wasn’t too fussed. That changed when he performed that and other new track “Black Skinhead” over the weekend on SNL. The energy and the attitude that ‘Ye delivered made these songs and now I’m excited about the new album Yeezus, its going to be like nothing he has done before.

Wilsen turns Grimes’ electric “Oblivion” into a stripped down, quiet dream pop version and if you don’t think that will work…well listen, cause it does.
“Oblivion” is the b-side to to new single “Dusk”, from the mini-album Sirens.

This is shimmery summer perfection.
Flipping the drum beat of Q-Tip’s “Breathe and Stop”, Sunny & Gabe’s “Clouds” is a hazy dream pop esque track that is optimism in music. This is end credits kind of music.
Sunny & Gabe are from Norfolk, VA and “Clouds” is from the upcoming release #FreeCandy.
