“They Won’t See U”, an unreleased track from AraabMUZIK, comes nicely equipped with a sharp 1-2 and a killer use of choral samples in the instrumentation. The result is akin almost to a futuristic gospel choir. We can dig that. Jams.

Imaad Wasif and LA-based accomplice Bobb Bruno give The Doors track “Go Insane” a 21st century facelift, subbing it’s 12-bar like sections with some extra fuzzy breakdowns of psychedelic rock sickness. The track is a favorite off the recent BEAT LA double LP Record Store Day compilation which also features some great covered cuts from other LA-based artists including No Age, Crystal Antlers and more. Check it out!

Here we have French electro star Kavinsky – known for his 80′s sound, getting remixed by Scottish club-popper, Studio Brussels. Sexy vocals and a fresh take on Kavinsky’s old school sound has this song meshing better than memory foam. Check out more by Studio Brussels at the links below.

Black Keys’ El Camino drops next week and the good news is that this is a solid, solid album. Several tracks have already seen light of day, and it was still tough picking a fave because there isn’t a weak song to be heard on the album. Let’s go with “Stop Stop”. It’s got elements a bit more pop than what we usually hear from these Akron guys. Their blues roots remain, but the chorus is a major hook.

Danish rockers and brothers The Great Tribulations just dropped their newest track on soundcloud. I can’t get enough of this song. The song has a New Order feel, but also maintains its individuality. The production features allaying synths, dreamy bridges, and tightly-knit guitar work. Sometimes a song’s most captivating qualities are strained by overproduction and unnecessary distractions, but not this track. From start to finish, “Go Back to the Beginning of the End” consistently delivers beautiful harmonies, well placed-hooks, and danceable drum beats. See what ya think. I can’t wait to hear more from these guys.
