It is with great sadness, yet much pride, that I’ve retired the addition of songs to the infamous “Random Musings” spotify playlist. 432 songs, 35 hours and 33 minutes of music later, it’s still a go to for any party, chill out sesh, bike ride…You name it.
BUT…When one door closes, another one opens. And that door is “Indian Summer”. It’s currently sits at 15 songs at just under an hour, but will serve as this quarter’s progressive playlist for Everything Ecstatic. Peep it below, press play, subscribe to it and follow along. Also see further down for a quick breakdown of the first slew of songs on the list and discover some new artists!
Young Galaxy – “Hard To Tell” – An absolutely infectious track from the Montreal-based Young Galaxy.
Gold Panda – “Reprise” – Perfect in every way. My favorite cut off of Gold Panda’s 2013 release Half Of Where You Live (on Ghostly)
Tennis – “I’m Callin'” – The Madonna-sounding single off of Tennis’ new LP, Ritual In Repeat. (Peep my review of the album in Paste Magazine).
TV on the Radio – “Mercy” – Hoping this track ends up on TVOTR’s upcoming album.
Kelela – “Bank Head” – Part of the revolutionary female-fronted electro r&b wave.
Jungle – “Julia” – Jungle will be on repeat at my next BBQ.
ODESZA – “Say My Name (feat. Zyra)” – My song of the summer. Get on ODESZA’s new album, In Return NOW!
Ibeyi – “River” – These French/Cuban twins are on XL Recordings. Very awesome.
Avi Buffalo – “Overwhelmed With Pride” – Saw him open for Owen Pallett last week. The new album is smooth.
Slow Magic – “Waited 4 U” – Get your dancy vibes going. Slow Magic is very mysterious….
Bear In Heaven – “If I Were To Lie” – Love their new record. killer Brooklyn band.
SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York (feat. Ezra Koenig)” – This is a game-changing collaboration. More to come on SBTRKT, but if you’ve already been following along on EE, we’re all over this record.
ODESZA – “It’s Only (feat. Zyra)” – ODESZA and Zyra again. Yearning to learn more about this wonderful vocalist.
The Juan MacLean – “Charlotte” – An electro throwback track, the way only a DFA artist can do it.
Flying Lotus – “Never Catch Me” – It’s laughable how amazing this collab is. Saw this track premiered live at FYF Fest and it was released to HIGH praise and rightfully so.
and get on this ODEZSA album! Seriously.
