Ellie Goulding – Goodness Gracious (Vaux & Rivera Remix)
It really seems at this point that Ellie Goulding can do no wrong. Something about her voice has producers wagging their tongues, ready to remix each and every track she releases. Vaux & Rivera released this remake yesterday, and is bound to become a biggie among both fist pumpers and…normal people.
Mirah – Oxen Hope
Singer-songwriter Mirah hasn’t dropped a solo project since 2009, but is coming back with great force in what she’s calling “a beak-up record.” Appealing, trance-inducing harmonies seep of raw emotion in this well-produced and distinctive track.
Curtis Harding – Keep on Shining
The release of Curtis Harding’s first single was followed by a wave of appraisal. According to NPR, his music is “surreal and wildly infectious,” with a vintage sound inspired by 60s and 70s deep soul.
Gold Spectacles – What Might Have Been
After emerging with “Steal You Away,” Gold Spectacles have released their second single, which continues to demonstrate the group’s avant-pop abilities and lyrical genius.
Jhene Aiko – Bed Peace (Feat. Childish Gambino)
I’ve heard this song here and there for a while and it’s finally grown on me. The lyrics feel forced but are ridiculously catchy, as is the track in its entirety. A nice feature from Childish Gambino adds a versatility that prevents “Bed Peace” from becoming flat or redundant.
