Song of the Day: Foals – Wake Me Up

A pared-back counterpoint to the sheer scale of their two-part album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, Wake Me Up shimmers with choppy, Chic-esque guitars, tight syncopated rhythms and Foals’ prototype flair for punchy, insistent hooks. It feels like a natural evolution, blending fresh influences with echoes of their roots as purveyors of rambunctious house party chaos. FrontmanContinua a leggere “Song of the Day: Foals – Wake Me Up”

Song of the Day: Animal Collective – Prester John

Time Skiffs’ nine songs are love letters, distress signals, en plein air observations, and relaxation hymns, the collected transmissions of four people who have grown into relationships and parenthood and adult worry. But they are rendered with Animal Collective‘s singular sense of exploratory wonder. Harmonies so rich you want to skydive through their shared air, textures soContinua a leggere “Song of the Day: Animal Collective – Prester John”

Song of the Day: Geese – Disco
