Here’s your after work jam status for a Tuesday. On “Wolves”, by Devon UK singer-songwriter Ben Howard, clattering acoustic strums support a percussive but beautiful series of melodies. Get a sample below.

Drake – I’m On One (Karetus Remix)

karetusdrake

Here goes a bit more bothered take on the DJ Khaled/Drake blog jam. Wobbly in all the right ways and laced with some most excellent synth flourishes, Lisbon-based duo Karetus’ remix of “I’m On One” is a keeper.

Beyonce – Party (Feat. Andre 3000) (Prod. Kanye West)

beyonce1

A murder’s row of collaborators. 3 Stacks links up with Bey on this new Kanye produced track. But does the track add up? Is this a Top 40 hit? Prob not. Is it an ace track? Check back. p.s. Peep the Slick Rick/Doug E. Fresh sample on the beat, straight sick.

Jubilants – Antics

jubilants

Jubilants, outta Sydney, offer up a strong debut with the track for “Antics”. Jangly guitar stabs, exceptional melodies, and enough rhythmic syncopation to get Rep. Anthony Weiner off the CPU and onto the d-floor mark this standout piece of indie rock and roll. Sample it below.
