Play these songs during your office's designated music hour. It's worth it, we promise.

Jennifer Castle, "Nature"

 "The tender, soaring folk full of melancholy and wit feels like a relic, but with too much singular personality to be just some curio."

Darkside, "Gone Too Soon"

"'Gone Too Soon' knows what it is from the beginning: oil-slick funk casting a long a thick shadow across Jaar's dismal mutter, a jam session of distorted bongos and paranoid licks, approaching a sunrise."

Deafheaven, "From The Kettle Onto The Coil"

"Like their breakout album Sunbather (one of the albums that defined 2013), the operative words seems to be "woosh," but never without a few twists."

Bobby Shmurda, "Hot N*gga (Reggae Mix)"

"...the New York rapper's song has the world dancing in a way that transcends Vine memes: The proof is in the remix, featuring dancehall legends Elephant Man and Junior Reid as well as the still-breaking-out Mavado."

Old and Weird, "Am I Dumb"

"Like early Happy Mondays missing its Xanax, Old and Weird trying to eke out some fun from the occasionally nerve-racking present."
