Go crazy.

Caribou, "Our Love"

"'Our Love' is less heart-swelling and more of a hyper-focused dancefloor filler. It sort of leapfrogs the Disclosure lads in that it pulls from the same strains of UK garage and house, but organizes them with a freer hand."

The Unicorns, "Let Me Sleep"

"It's a perfect anthem for hermits, souped up on that familiar undistilled pop (that rocking outro is the best) while finding engaging tension with the morose lyrics. You can think of it as a party underneath the covers you've pulled over your head and all your fears are cute little gremlins dancing on your chest."

Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band, "Lam Phu Thai # 1"

"The 'electric phin' is responsible for the spacey tremulations that distinguish and lead the sound, with tinny percussion and wandering bass lines providing plenty of forks in the road to get lost in."

Lungbutter, "Vile"

"...constantly reassesses where the edge is and goes there while screaming static through guitars and hellish, prophetic oaths of urban ennui."

Robyn & Röyksopp, "A Monument To Everything" (Kindness remix)

"[Kindness is] still the same methodical music nerd as when he first emerged. But now there's a heightened sense of design: each new element — from gummy slap bass to brand new, ghostly sparseness — is outfitted over the original track. Everything glides effortlessly in perfect sync with the song's existing heart, beating in perfect and lovely time."
