To The World by Kanye West & R.Kelly
Off Good Music’s much anticipated Cruel Summer, we’re suckers for R.Kelly’s smooth signature vocals mixed with Kanye’s rap solos in the latter half of the track—there’s no denying the hip-hop powerhouse forces fueling To The World and the rest of the album…it’s been on repeat at the office since it the moment of its release!
Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It by Stars
A nostalgic second single from the Canadian rockers’ latest record, The North, this adrenaline-rushing track guarantees to allure your ears with its boy-girl vocals, infectious guitar hook and dance-happy drum beat.
Up All Night by Best Coast
Shameless fan girls for Bethany Cosentino’s surf-pop sound, we were giddy to catch Best Coast as part of Santa Monica’s Summer Twilight Concert Series a few weeks ago. The highlight came with this lyrically straightforward, heartbreaking ballad, Up All Night.
Genesis by Grimes
A consummate soundtrack to our digital age, Claire Boucher’s latest Grimes release, Visions, is arguably as addictive as Instagram. Conveying the album’s futuristic finesse, Genesis combines layers of penetrating vocals over an electro harp-and-piano base.
Madness by Muse
Borrowing EDM’s quintessential pulsing bass, Muse harnesses the dubstep sound for a crisp, rock-sex effect in the first single off their new album. Maybe we’re biased to all things Matthew Bellamy, but we’re totally into it!
Barely Love You Too by Frank + Derol
A breakout track off of Frank + Derol’s debut EP, we love this catchy pop hit—but don’t let that fool you, there’s nothing bubblegum about it. It’s a new sound that’s one part dance-y, one part chill…just give it a listen, you’ll understand!
No Tell by Smoke & Jackal
The brainchild of Jared Followill from Kings of Leon and Nick Brown from Mona, Smoke & Jackal’s No Tell boasts smoky vocals, soulful beats & the guitar action you’d expect from an experienced, Nashville-influenced rocker duo.
