This Week’s Best Songs: Future, St. Vincent, Chad VanGaalan and more… Álauda and The Body.

- Feb 7, 2014

You want the best songs of the week? We got St. Vincent. We got Future. You want more. We got more. You want even more? We talked about managing your unreasonable expectations. I'm going to my mother's place. I need some time to think about things.

Álauda, "HoneyPriest"

Alauda 'Honey Priest'

"...her gurgling contexts are filled with surprises and new discoveries in a well-plumbed field, and each new collection of joyously off-kilter sonics become a colony of new and vivid corals hiding beneath the silt."

Chad VanGaalen, "Where Are You?"

"Round and round it swirls in a cycle of frayed circuitry and stark, monstrous rhythm sections, like The Creature from the Black Lagoon just stepped behind a drum kit."

St. Vincent, "Prince Johnny"

St. Vincent "Prince Johnny" (OFFICIAL AUDIO)

"...brings memories of Actor with its dignified synthetic choirs interrupted by greasy guitar licks."

Future feat. Pharrell, Pusha T and Casino, "Move That Dope"

"Considering his mammoth hits with their oddball hooks, it’s sometimes easy to forget Future’s aptitude for purist pleasing verses. But surround him with lyricists, and he brings an impressive game while refusing not to have fun with it."

The Body & The Haxan Cloak, "Hail To Thee, Everlasting Pain"

The Body - Hail To Thee, Everlasting Pain [Official Audio]

"The despair contains distinct antechambers that progress in a downward spiral, from putrid and devastated techno into guitars that suddenly rend the track apart like a demon emerging from previously human flesh."
